    If the federal government shuts down because Republicans and the Obama administration fail to agree on a budget, there will be plenty of blame to go around. Public Divided Over Who Would be More to Blame if Gov’t Shuts DownAbout as many say they would blame the Republicans (39%) for such a standoff as say they would blame Obama (36%), with 17% volunteering that both would be equally to blame.

    This parallels the divided sentiment on the eve of the budget standoff in the spring of 2011, which was ultimately averted. But opinions are notably different today than they were during the budget battle of 1995. A November 1995 Washington Post/ABC News survey asked a similar question and found that 46% said a shutdown would mainly be the fault of the Republican Congress; just 27% said the bulk of the blame would fall on the Clinton administration.

    27% of the people in 1995 would blame the Obama administration ? Did I read that right ?

    OK, I saw the fine print. Still, maybe if it said "current Democrat President", I would feel better about accepting this at face value.

    Shut it down and leave it down I say. No government would be a better choice than what we have now. To me its not about who gets the blame but who gets the credit.:applause:
