Nick Gillespie on Why Obama is Ultimately Responsible for the Gov't Shutdown


"Whether the government shutdown turns truly apocalyptic or ends up just being a short break in standard-operating procedure," argues Nick Gillespie, there's plenty of blame to go around when it comes assigning responsibility for the government shutdown.

The one thing that shouldn't be slighted, though, is that it is ultimately Barack Obama's fault. He's the deciderer, right, the top dog? The eight years of his time in office will be known to future generations as the Obama Years and not the Boehner Perplex or the Reid Interregnum.

With great power—and Obama insists he has the unlitaeral right to kill anyone, even a U.S. citizen, that represents a national security threat—comes great responsiblity.
