I found this interesting Poll that was taken during the government shutdown?

it was reported that during the Government shutdown news organizations reported 41 times that the Republicans were to blame for the government shutdown it also said that there were 0 stories blaming the Democratic Party and only 12 stories which blamed both parties do you think we're leaning LEFT like parallel to the ground left

    You are mis-representing the story, but I guess that isn't important to you. The story actually was a comparison of news stories on ABC, NBC and CBS television about the shutdown, not all news sources. And it was an analysis done by a conservative BS outlet, Media Research Center.

    Yes, that's why a position to have an accountable Gov and make smart cuts to balance the budget is seen as "extreme". Even thought that would result in less government corruption and more stability in all Gov programs. so basically we have gone to the left of common sense.

    If Americans knew how our system worked 100% would have blamed the GOP for the shutdown..

    But thanks to FOXNEWS misinforming people..a great number blamed the president..Its NOT his job to pass a budget nor is it his job to negotiate a budget..that is CONGRESS

    the senate passed a budget (CR) and sent it to the house..Boehner wouldnt let it get voted on, so the govt shut down..THE END
