I like how the President waited until AFTER the shutdown...
...To meet with Republicans. Not once in the weeks before, but AFTER the shutdown. This shows CLEARLY who wants the shutdown and who doesn't. Obviously the President thinks he can successfully blame the Republicans for it, so he wants the shutdown to happen to benefit himself politically. What a great guy right?
"Never let a crisis go to waste" (especially one you created for your own benefit).
Once again the GOP proves itself to be the worst negotiator. They set themselves up for failure, if they were smart they would have tried to negotiate with the President. After he hold the veto vote, poor governance once again by the GOP.
Lol, are you serious? The entire time they were asking for the president to sit down with them, and he went golfing or something instead. Negotiation to the Democrats is for the Republicans to give them everything they want, while getting nothing in return.
Well F that. The Republicans put what they wanted, and the Democrats REFUSE to negotiate. They could say OK, we can do a 1 month delay instead of the year the Republicans want. Anything but saying "F you, give us what we want, or we'll blame you for the shutdown".
