Who gets the blame for the shutdown?


NBC’s Chuck Todd joins The Cycle to talk about President Barack Obama’s speech at FEMA Monday, where he again put pressure on Congress to act on the shutdown and the debt ceiling deadline. Then, Time’s Mike Grunwald, author of “The New Deal: The Hidden Story of Change in the Obama Era,” joins to discuss whether the blame of the shutdown should fall on Obama's lack of involvement or the ideological polarization in Congress.
