US Govt Shutdown

This morning the BBC played part of US President Obamas shutdown speech/statement. In it he said basically, that one branch of government does not get to shut down the whole government. I disagree. In grade school we learned the three sections of government form a system of checks and balances to keep any one of the three sections from getting to much power. So to me, this is part of the process, when things get really bad. But the US president seemed to think that in a stalemate he should be able to override everyone else and  impose his will.

I find it very disturbing that the US Presidents understanding of the US Government seems to be less than that of a grade schooler.

  1. These are interesting times we live in. It seems there is a crisis a day and we are being ruled by the three stooges, not the three branches.
