I heard President Obama this morning and as an American I expected more than the blame game from him. He is the leader of a great nation and should be the example to us all as should the rest of those in service to we citizens. The issue is clearly obvious and pointing fingers is childish. What I would have liked to have heard from him is that he and the rest of the Washington Weasels would NOT ACCEPT THEIR "MANDATORY" PAY UNTIL THEIR JOB IS COMPLETE AND THEY GET THE USA BACK TO BUSINESS. ALSO THAT THEY WOULD BE REAL AMERICANS AND ENDURE THE HARDSHIPS OF THE LOSS OF THEIR INCOME AND PERKS FOR THE DURATION OF THIS FIASCO, JUST LIKE THE REST OF US. ITS NOT LIKE IT WILL TRULY AFFECT MOST OF YHEM SINCE MOST OF THEM HAVE OTHER INCOMES AND HEALTHY BANK ACCOUNTS IM SURE-NOT LIKE THE MAJORITY OF THOSE WHO WILL SUFFER BECAUSE OF THIS GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN. WHAT ARE YOU TEACHING YOUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN??!! I BELIEVE THAT 97% OF YOU SHOULD LEAVE WHEN PRESIDENT OBAMA LEAVES ALSO. GET A REAL JOB AND STOP MAKING US PAY FOR YOUR "WELFARE"!! YOU ALL SHOULDBE SUBJECTED TO ALL THE HOOPS YOU MAKE THE REST OF US JUMP. YOU ARE THE LEADERS! WE ARE YOUR PATRONS- LOOK IT UP. BY THE WAY ARE YOUR PAYCHECKS GOING TO BE DELAYED LIKE THOSE ESSENTIAL PEOPLE STILL ON THE JOB? EXPLAIN THAT TOYOUR YOUNG ONES.
