    Sen. McConnell talks about debt, S&P, and Obama's intelligence

    So - is McConnell a liar, or is the President a "really smart guy?"

    It matters not, perception is everything.

    Let's go with "false dichotomy." McConnell need not be a liar and President Obama obviously isn't a real smart guy. McConnell is merely wrong.

    Your assumption is that everything which comes out of McConnell's mouth is a fact/lie and not an opinion?

    I would think that if we adopted Obama's plans, we'd be much better off than we are. He wanted to get rid of the Bush tax cuts but didn't have the votes to do it. So...we still have this incredible deficit.

    You'd think the GOP would cop to the fact that the tax cuts haven't helped, they have hurt.

    At the end of the day, we sent the Congress up there and we have a divided government that gets very little done. We get the Congress and the chaos we deserve. The markets are reflecting that.

    Could you imagine if we were having to get into the Space Race these days? First there would be a section of the GOP that denies there is anything called "outer space". Next there would be people in the GOP who swear their plan would land us on every planet within the end of the year. Finally, there would be a bunch of myopic gym class morons called the Tea Party examining the Constitution to see where the framers mentioned space exploration.

    Forget the Presidential election in 2012. The future of this country is in direct correlation to the number of Tea Party members sent to Congress. I would say if they double their numbers, we're probably looking at the end of the nation by 2020 if not sooner. Nothing will get through the Congress that these worms don't want to get through and, suffice to say, there will be no spending on anything other than today's bills.

    The investments in the future will be done by other countries and they will own it.

    A ‘crisis’ of the GOP’s making; a consequence of failed republican policies during the last administration.

    The tragedy, of course, is had the House executed its Constitutionally mandated responsibilities and initiated legislation whose goal was to hasten economic recovery rather than ‘get rid of Obama,’ we would not have been downgraded and likely closer to that goal.

    McConnel is a career politician and supported all of Bush's agenda.
    Think about it a bit.

    That addresses the fallacy of the OP's post how? Oh, it doesn't.

    Or McConnel is avoiding antagonizing Obama further by saying what he really thinks, that the president is an arrogant asshole without a clue.
    That would be the truth, btw.
