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?

As I have indicated in an earlier blog, I have sympathies with the Republicans on Obamacare; however, I think that they on to a hiding-to-nothing, and will be penalized by the US public.

Any thoughts?
