President Obama admonished the GOP to, “stop governing by crisis.” I certainly have no complaint with that request but the truth is that governing by crisis is what America does. The American people, and thus American politicians, rarely respond to anything if it isn’t declared a crisis. How many people even know there is the threat of a government shutdown? But just wait until their government check doesn’t show up. They will raise hell until the day it arrives and then fall off the radar once again.
