After all night listening to the media blame the Republicans, this is a pretty shabby return on the electricity used.
Race gets you 2% … Depreciated value kicks in.
CNN did a poll and asked a question in this form: “Do you think Barack Obama has acted mostly like a responsible adult or mostly like a spoiled child during the recent debate over the federal budget?”
Responsible adult 49% Spoiled child 47% No opinion 5%
Same question, asked about Republicans in Congress:
Responsible adults 25% Spoiled children 69% No opinion 6%
Same question, asked about Democrats in Congress:
Responsible adults 35% Spoiled children 58% No opinion 7%
Headline for the article reporting the poll: “CNN Poll: GOP would bear the brunt of shutdown blame.”
What surprises me is how nearly everyone was willing to accept the push of the responsible adult/spoiled child dichotomy. And I wonder whether Democrats or Republicans were more likely to accept the invitation to think in those terms.
