Here is a suggestion.

Instead of shutting down the government, perhaps we should focus on the Tea Party in November of 2014 and, as Public Enemy so appropriately suggests . . .

"Shut 'em Down"

Seeya 'round town, Moscow, because . . .

But first you must learn how to smile as you kill 
If you want to be like the folks on the hill."

They have vowed to oppose anything the president does or stands for. They do not want a legacy left to this administration which might be pleasing to the American public. It isn't just that Obama is a democrat, but there is something about him that is extremely disturbing to certain factions. He is confident, intelligent, sophisticated, charming, and competent. He got us out of Iraq, which he promised to do. His administration addressed a health care system that denies care to millions of Americans due to lack of insurance because they flat out can't afford it anymore on service industry wages. So what is it about Obama that so many find disturbing to the point of hatred. Well, let's see, as I noted he is a democrat, he came from Chicago, he likes basketball, and all sorts of music, including certain rap tomes. Hmmmmmm, what disturbs people so? Can it be he is the face of modern America? Can it be that he is black? The stench of race relations in America is one that lurks just beneath the surface. And to have a black man as president, especially one who lacks the proper sense of "place," and ample ethnic humility is the ultimate insult to so many Tea Party extremists both in Congress and within those who voted for them. Let's clean up our mess and take a stand for reason and common sense. Let's start with Congress.
