Democrats learn from past, stay strong in face of shutdown: A child born under a thunderstorm is not afraid of the roaring of a lion

The US government shutdown is temporarily over… until the next crisis in months to come.

I give credit to Democrats for sticking together like fingers of the same hand against the GOP. The Democrats learned lessons from the great government shutdown of 1995-1996.

John Boehner, on the other hand, repeated the same strategy that made the GOP unpopular in the past. To the Democrats and President Obama, I would give them a thumbs up for staying firm and determined. As the Dioula of Ivory Coast say, “A child born under a thunderstorm is not afraid of the roaring of a lion.”
