silverman writes an article about effects on the shut down.

The media is probably overstating the magnitude of the shutdown's political impact.

Remember Syria? The fiscal cliff? Benghazi? The IRS scandal? The collapse of immigration reform? All of these were hyped as game-changing political moments by the news media, just as so many stories were during the election last year. In each case, the public's interest quickly waned once the news cycle turned over to another story. Most political stories have a fairly short half-life and won't turn out to be as consequential as they seem at the time.

The impact of the 1995-96 shutdowns is overrated in Washington's mythology.

But what about the pair of government shutdowns in 1995 and 1996? It's common to find articles asserting, without qualification, that they were a major factor in prompting President Clinton's reelection.

However, the empirical evidence for this claim is thin. Clinton's approval ratings were somewhat higher a few months after the shutdown than a few months beforehand — but this was part of a relatively steady, long-term trend toward improved approval ratings for Clinton, probably because of solid economic growth.

And I love the fact you went QT once your demands were answered FACTUALLY.
But then, that's all you people really do... demand others do your bidding.

Remember What the Democrats Did with Obamacare-that's reason of the shut down... talking about 'foisting' a political agenda, coupled with the liberal agenda of eugenics.

"Elections we are told have consequences: Alas, as a result of the death of Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA), the nation's hope of stopping the Federal Governments attempts to take over one sixth of the nation's economy dangled on a Republican hopeful who was vying for the vacant Senate seat. Much to the surprise of many, Scott Brown won and the sixty votes needed to pass socialized medicine fell short in the Senate by one vote.
The Democrats were in a tizzy. They were so close, they could almost taste it. But now their dreams of an emerging socialist utopia were dashed. How could they overcome this defeat? Simple! They were in the majority, so they reasoned, and so they broke continuity with Senate rules deciding that a simple majority was all that was needed (Elections no longer had consequences)! ObamaCareLess, as I like to call it, became the unpopular law of the land.
If the Democrats had been honest ever...just once... back in 2010, then perhaps the events of today would not be unfolding. I, for one, hope the Republicans will break with their compromising past, and remember these events and the shameful way the people of this country and themselves were treated back then.

Sure, imagine whatever you want.

Facts are that in the aftermath, Gingrich, the leader of the shutdown, lost his job. And Clinton gained in support going on to an easy re-election. I don't think winners fire their leader. Do you??

Hey, you can believe anything you want. You've proven that.

Keep imagining things and watch your Repugnants cave in, they lost.

"2 rabbis, 8 others jailed in NJ, NY divorce sting
Email this Story
Oct 10, 7:17 PM (ET)
By GEOFF MULVIHILL
TRENTON, N.J.(AP)- Two orthodox rabbis and eight other men were arrested in an FBI sting in New Jersey and New York on charges they plotted to kidnap and torture a man to force him to grant a religious divorce.
Rabbis Mendel Epstein and Martin Wolmark charged Jewish women and their families thousands of dollars to obtain religious divorces, known as "gets," from unwilling husbands, the FBI said.
"They didn't do it out of religious conviction," Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph Gribko told a judge Thursday in a federal court hearing for the men. "They did it for money."
Marc Agnifilo, a lawyer for Wolmark, said it's possibly a case where religious law collides with federal statutes, where the crimes they're accused of can be punished by life in prison.
"It's a very complex case. The government says it's all about money, but I don't think that's quite right," Agnifilo said after the hearing, calling coercion and even violence to get husbands to grant religious divorces "an old tradition."
The rabbis and the 10 other men were arrested as a result of an undercover operation that began in August when two FBI agents, one posing as a woman trying to get a divorce, contacted the rabbis. According to an FBI complaint, Epstein spoke about forcing compliance through "tough guys" who use electric cattle prods and even place plastic bags over the heads of husbands.
The FBI said the price was more than $50,000 and a prosecutor said at Thursday's hearing that the organization involved in the alleged plot had been involved in up to 20 kidnappings over the years.
No pleas were entered Thursday and lawyers for some of the defendants sought to minimize their clients' roles in an effort to get them freed on bail or put on home confinement.
Magistrate Douglas Arpert ordered all 10 held in federal custody at least until hearings next week.

The investigation took place in Ocean and Middlesex counties in New Jersey and Rockland County in New York, and ended with arrests overnight Wednesday.
Four of the rabbis' associates were described as enforcers, or "tough guys," as Epstein called the men who helped coerce reluctant husbands.
The undercover agents, including a man posing as the woman's brother, met with Epstein at his Ocean County home in August, during which the rabbi spoke about "kidnapping, beating and torturing husbands in order to force a divorce," the complaint said.
"Basically what we are going to be doing is kidnapping a guy for a couple of hours and beating him up and torturing him and then getting him to give the get," Epstein is quoted as saying during the conversation, which was videotaped.
Epstein is also quoted saying he wanted to use a cattle prod to torture the reluctant husband...."
They belonged to a liberal synagogue--you know like the Shitcowsky and Washwoman Schultz--figured that out right away when the democrats wanted to use a cattle prod, that's how classy they are. They support gays and abortion too-so I suppose a cattle prod would come in handy in more ways than one.:)
