2 words:

Teabagger Downgrade.
 
2012-04-24 05:56:59 PM  

tenpoundsofcheese: More broadly, the downgrade reflects our view that the effectiveness, stability, and predictability of American policymaking and political institutions have weakened at a time of ongoing fiscal and economic challenges to a degree more than we envisioned when we assigned a negative outlook to the rating on April 18, 2011.


Translation:

"We know you guys usually can't do shiat right anyways but MAN, even we thought you could do a better job than this"

tenpoundsofcheese: Since then, we have changed our view of the difficulties in bridging the gulf between the political parties over fiscal policy, which makes us pessimistic about the capacity of Congress and the Administration to be able to leverage their agreement this week into a broader fiscal consolidation plan that stabilizes the government's debt dynamics any time soon."


Translation:

"Since you guys can't seem to do shiat anymore, we have absolutely no faith that you guys can fix the mess you're in"

Basically, S&P is blaming it on the fact that both sides can't come to a middle ground on basically anything in Congress.

/So vote Republican

tenpoundsofcheese: Lando Lincoln: S
1 and 2) The debt is huge, and it's not because of some gigantic economic crisis that happened at the end of 2008. It's just because Obama likes to spend money. And Obama lost us our AAA rating,

yeah, that was awful. Forgot about that.

3) No budget proposed in 1,091 days. That gigantic book of "budget proposal" that was handed out in the beginning of this year, and every year before that? It was all just empty pages.

I think anyone can propose a ridiculous proposal, which he has. When he had the House and Senate he still couldn't get a budget passed. That just shows a lack of leadership and results.

4) From 2007 to 2009, black families median incomes dropped 83%. Because Obama hates darkies.

I don't think that is the case. He is just incapable of building a strong economy that would benefit everyone. Woman and Appalachians have also been very negatively affected. It doesn't mean that he hates them, he just doesn't know how to do anything that would help them. .


because less than a year in office is plenty of time to turn around a deep recession and rebuild a strong economy. I wonder what those numbers would look like at the end of 2011?

Actually, his performance has been fantastic. GOP Congressional performance has been terrible. That's not on him. Nice try though.

"Terrible" always beats "Even Worse".


THIS^
Our whole government sucks, and because Obama leads it, he sucks. I don't soley blame him. Its every Senator, Congressmen, and Representative that suck. They should all be fired.
Why do people stick their neck out defending any of these asshats? Obama is responsible because he's in charge.

I really wish there was a "vote out the incumbent movement".

It really is amazing that an organization whose rating is below 20% can keep getting re-elected.

The Democrats constantly compromise, to the point of watering down legislation to near-uselessness (see: "Obamacare"). The Republicans vote 'no' on things they propose if it gets any Democratic support.

But sure, both sides are equally bad, and it's all Obama's fault that the Republicans have outright stated that their primary goal, above helping the country, is making Obama a one-term President.

What makes you think they're interested in leading? Seriously, you're wondering what happens after they beat Obama... what their plan might be, where they go. This is the party of Bush still, they fight the war to win the war, there is no thought given to what comes next. Your idea, that they would plan out for necessary governance beyond the next immediate step, runs contrary to everything they believe. They fight because the fight is all there is, once Obama is gone, there will be someone (or some group) to fight... maybe it will be reinstating bans on gays, maybe it will be some good way of blaming Hispanics for our economic woes, maybe it will be another mischaracterization of the poor as being some unemployed, lazy, shiftless bums... who knows... all they know is they need to win this war, there is no next...

By capitulating entirely to the least-destructive of the Republican demands, even when they are justifiably, and significantly in the minority, obviously.

Which the Dems have obliged.

They also think putting a Republican in office would help the country a lot. So yeah, we've established that they're idiots.

...with an irrelevant link to some random discussion about net neutrality and an incoherent ramble about Fox News, Margaret Thatcher, and a defensive skirmish with Argentina in bloody 1982.

WTF does Rupert Murdoch even have to do with anything?

I hesitate to assume that you're interested in facts, but since you asked, yes, there was, until 2003. It was kind of a big deal, maybe you read about it.

/T-minus how long before "you can be gay and not act on it they're totally different"?

Mikey1969: jehovahs witness protection: "You people" actually think he's done a good job?

He's doing pretty well with what he was handed, and he hasn't farked anything up as bad as his predecessor. As for his potential replacements? They all appear to have flunked out of Clown College, and have nothing to offer the situation, so I'm content to stick with someone who helped cap the erupting geyser of economic collapse he was handed by the retarded warmonger who made this mess in the FIRST place.


Every budget hes proposed is useless because it would balloon the deficit and lead to insolvency.
Of course he'd be retired and collecting speaking fees by then.

The man is useless, he can't make any hard choices that would restore business confidence and limit our debt servicing costs.

To: Le Chien Rouge

These evil characters that the current occupant of the White Hut has surrounded himself with proves beyond the shadow of doubt that he is not merely unfit. Obama is inherently evil beyond a decent man's capacity to measure evil.

Those who form his inner circle are as devoid of decent humanity as is a wild boar hog.

He demonstrates his evil by reaching down into the sewers to select beings for key positions that existed and for those that did not exist until he was crowned. These evil ones he appoints have neither character, or a modicum of goodness in their being.

We, my fellow Americans, are being ruled and ruined by members of the netherworld. They are no better than ghouls, zombies or manufactured monsters.

Another full year of us will be about the same as lobotomizing America and turning this once great nation into something much worse than a banana republic without the bananas: a cemetery!

These frightening, bottom feeders hate and despise everything that is innocent and good. They wallow in depravity and encourage its growth. Anything that pleases satan is advanced by these evil anti-American monsters.

How is it that we came to this?

It is my opinion, that although sub-creatures such as these existed in our past, the accelleration began about 1912 and the first president to call upon these forces of darkness was noneother than Woodrow Wilson.

The only way to combat this evil that has descended upon America is to pray to God and St. Michael the Archangel to cast into hell all the evil spirits who prowl about the earth seeking the ruination of souls!

I am surprised that no one noticed that the Townhall goob completely misrepresented the statistics on household median net worth.

From the steaming pile of feces:
* In 2007, before Obama took office, white households had a median net worth of $134,280, compared with $13,450 for black households. By the end of 2009, the median net worth for white households plummeted 24% to $97,860. But for black households, it dropped 83% to $2,170. The Chicago Sun-Times called it, "The Disappearing Black Middle Class."

From the actual article cited:
In 2004, the median net worth of white households was $134,280, compared with $13,450 for black households, according to an analysis of Federal Reserve data by the Economic Policy Institute. By 2009, the median net worth for white households had fallen 24 percent to $97,860; the median net worth for black households had fallen 83 percent to $2,170, according to the institute.

The destruction of the black middle class occurred on Bush's watch, not Obama's.

5T more in debt.

I know people like to offset that with his streamlining of the spilt milk regulations and something about different types of salmon, but results are what counts. Not activity.


Well, 8.2% unemployment is a positive, when you consider he was handed a 10% unemployment at the start of his term. Although, I think we tend to give Presidents too much credit/flack for economic conditions...we are mostly a free market system, so they don't usually do much to help/hurt the overall picture, in my undereducated opinion.

As for the debt thing, I do put some blame on him, as he didn't push through a removal of that STUPID tax break when he had the chance. He thought he could deal with the Republicans and they would play fair, and he was wrong. I still mainly blame the GOP, tho.

He had to negotiate, since, while they controlled the House and Senate, the Democrats only had an actual supermajority for a few months, and even then had to negotiate with conservatives within their own party.
