Clearly Obama did not think the government would be operating today. The Lincoln Memorial visit was supposed to be a backdrop for a speech about the government shutdown. Instead, it was more Beltway mythology about bipartisanship. Democrats are still demoralized and need Obama to pick a fight, not pick up GOP talking points. The about cut matters to those programs and people effected by it, but have nothing to do with the budget deficit.
