Who Will Be Blamed For The Government Shutdown?

Well, it's quite simple.  Look who WANTED the government shutdown.

(1)  The Tea Partiers say the Dems will be blamed, but LISTEN to them in this video.  They have no problem with a shutdown (one guy even has a sign urging shutdown):


(2)  From the Washington Post:

House Republicans huddled late Monday and, according to a GOP aide, gave the speaker an ovation when he informed them that he was advising the House Administration Committee to begin preparing for a possible shutdown.


UPDATE: And the new WSJ/NBC poll tells the tale: a majority of Republicans prefer a government shutdown to a budget compromise.
