It is interesting:

When Barry and the Democrats shut down the government, the Republicans were blamed...for standing fast, and refusing to negotiate...Because they would not capitulate to the wishes of the (then) President.

This time, the narrative is, of course (according to the Media), the shutdown is the fault of the (current) President to capitulate to the Congress...to the Democrats.....and for refusing to back down when THEY refuse to negotiate ("There Will Be No Wall").

Interesting double standard, innit?

And I note that they are pushing this pretty hard in the Propaganda News, so it must not be flying with the public polls.

It's also interesting; the unanimous wail of the MSM that the Coast guard is not getting paid. So let's get this straight; the left wants the government to re-open so the Coast Guard can maintain border security at sea, but not until there's no border security on land...

"I am proud to shut down the government for border security, Chuck, because the people of this country don’t want criminals and people that have lots of problems and drugs pouring into our country. So I will take the mantle. I will be the one to shut it down. I’m not going to blame you for it. The last time you shut it down, it didn’t work. I will take the mantle of shutting down." -- Donald Trump, Dec. 11, 2018

Imagine my surprise to learn that yesterday was the first missed paychecks for furloughed workers. Based on news stories I thought they have been eating dog food and facing foreclosure for weeks now.
