    From the article:

    But Earnest equivocated when he was asked if Obama would shut down the government if the GOP denies amnesty just for the immigration agency.

    Earnest said when asked by ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl if Obama would veto a government-wide budget that defunded the amnesty program, “Yes".

    Therefore Obama would shut down the government.

    Republicans have a specific rider attached to the overall budget bill that would specifically deny the immigration service the money needed to implement the amnesty program. Josh Earnest would not say that Obama would shutdown the government over that one provision. The important part of this rider would deny the immigration service the funding needed to grant 4 million work permits, effectively handcuffing the amnesty program.

    So your story is about an action that the Republicans are not going to take--deny all funding for the amnesty program--and the response by the White House, threatening a veto, is to the scenario where the Republicans deny all funding for the amnesty program.

    [Do you guys read the story or just grab headlines and post?]

    Only Republicans can shut down the government. It's in the Constitution and the science is settled.

    The Dems are having a difficult time coping with the loss of voters that they used to take for granted.

    The GOP needs to stand tall--something that they have not done for a few years.

    Like a child. When he doesn't get his way , he doesn't care who he hurts.

    Obama is mean spirited and vindictive. During the last government shutdown, he targeted those that he could hurt the most for cuts.

    It blows my mind that you people never tire of slamming Obama as if he's operating totally on his own with no advisors. He's a puppet in every sense of the word. Look at the cabal that groomed and created him and came to D.C. with him to understand the Marxist agenda that is being forced upon us.

    I think that you have a point here. Obama is now more unpopular than ebola, but to your point, Obama did not create the movement--the movement was hanging around in the shadows and it created Obama. Obama is now very angry that so many people have left the Democrat Party and it is all his doing.
