Each political party uses the people that will get out their voters. The Taxed Enough Already people, and the WW2 veterans get out the voters. Jesse, and Al get out the Democrats. The Independents, and , and 3rd party people will decide for themselves how to vote

I'm a real vet. And I know who's fault it is. These vets need to blame the Republicans for causing the mess in the first place. Pathetic.

the monuments are the least of it, fool. This is costing billions and many are actually suffering real damage. The 17% is better than half of the 35% that can be shut down on a discretionary basis. The other portion of the discretionary part is paying the troops and running our defense. Any real patriot or thinking vet would think that the better choice when the idiot teabaggers shut it down.
"The House of Representatives recently passed legislation that includes an ill-advised provision to prioritize payments, which would not protect the full faith and credit of the United States. Any plan to prioritize some payments over others is simply default by another name. There is no way of knowing the damage any prioritization plan would have on our economy and financial markets. It would represent an irresponsible retreat from a core American value: We are a nation that honors all of its commitments." [Department of the Treasury, Secretary of the Treasury, 9/25/13]

Obama was finally offered a clean bill, and he moved the goal post again. This time, they have to remove HIS SEQUESTER FOR HIM.

Some folks crave the limelight and come back like a bad penny over and over and over again. 2605 Perhaps Palin should be using her "infamy" to question how this shutdown is effecting our children.
Ask the man that has refused six offers, and won't bring one of his own to the table. Of course it's hard to negotiate over one scoop or two, when he won't let you even pick the flavor.

They want to destroy his signature legislation to do it. And he gave them a taste of their own medicine. There's only one outcome the Republicans can come out with after their little shutdown. They will lose and Obama will win. And the only bad part about that is ..........we gotta watch you throw tantrums again. Sigh!!!!!!!!!!

It's actually kinda disgusting that Cruz and Palin are using our WWII Vets to politicize their temper tantrum.
Democrats are blocking vets from memorials to politicize their position. Republicans stand with vets for the same reason. The vets will remember who stood with them versus against them.

Yes, I served during wartime, and was shot at and all the fun that goes with it. Real veterans don't forget their oath to their country for some radical ideology.

Yes, we know the signature, we have to pass it to see what's in it. We don't like it the unions don't like it business don't like it and of course liberals having to pay don't like it and ask for exemption........some signature. Passed with games, trick, bribes and extortion.

No, Moody's knows more than Jack Lew, who was forgiven several thousand dollars of mortgage loans by NYU.

Moody's calls for the end of the debt ceiling law. May as well, they can't limit themselves.

Political pandering and partisan posturing using vets as politicial pawns. Predictable from some of these publicity wh*res.
Many of our local venues are shut down and you tell folks to come back when Boehner gets his act together.
Too bad these publicity wh"res don't spend their time posing in front of children being effected because of the shutdown.
Naaaaah, not quite as jingoistic.
