US shutdown: a radical Republican triumph | The World.

This article leaves me with two open questions:

  1. So the Republican Party is increasingly moving to the right, I wonder what that means for the World economy and defense?
  2. BUT what seriously worries me, is whether President Obama has got the leadership skills and tenacity to resolve the current crisis?

Any thoughts?
