At the source of the shutdown, the economy falters — and anger at Obama runs high – The Washington Post.

Some people seem to hold hate in their hearts so much that their perception of reality is delusional. There are lots of problems small towns face since the start of the financial crisis that have nothing to do with President Obama. Not everyone will perceive themselves as advantaged under any system, but I believe society as a whole benefits from Obama’s domestic policies as opposed to the austerity efforts of Tea Party politicians.
