Poll question: who blame for government shutdown?
Spurred by a hastily arranged evening meeting between President Barack Obama and the top two congressional leaders, negotiators worked into Thursday to try to resolve remaining differences in a possible budget deal that would avert a government shutdown.
If there is no deal by midnight Friday, when the current spending authorization measure expires, parts of the government will close down.
Obama told reporters that the 90-minute meeting he held Wednesday night with House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, was "constructive," adding it narrowed and clarified the outstanding issues. He provided no specifics, and said staff members would continue working through the night on the details.
"I remain confident that if we're serious about getting something done, we should be able to complete a deal and get it passed and avert a shutdown," Obama said. "But it's going to require a sufficient sense of urgency from all parties involved" to prevent a shutdown that "could have real effects on everyday Americans."

7. The rethugs and the tea party are certinly the proximate cause.
But if the white house had energized the base rather then running away from it for the first two years then perhaps we wouldn't be in this situation.

11. Republicans are at fault. Always have been. Always will.
The Teabaggers is just an excuse. Even if Teabaggers were gone the Republicans would still be responsible for the shutdown.
