Blaming Tea Party for S&P downgrade is like blaming Betty Ford Clinic for alcoholism

    Bozell to Media: Don't Endorse John Kerry's Crusade Against the Tea Party

    The liberal media is doing everything they can to get people to not see the obvious. The obvious being that Obama is to blame for this downgrade.

    His horrible policies make Carter look responsible in comparison. Even the incompetent Jimmy Carter didn't get this country downgraded. Only Barack Insane Economy Obama could do that.

    As usual with liberals, they are desperately pointing the fingers anywhere else but themselves in a pathetic effort to deflect the blame away from themselves.

    But let's examine the obvious. The Tea Party did not pass any budgets. The tea party did not vote on any budgets. The Tea Party did NOTHING but protest and vote for candidates in an attempt to stop this RUNAWAY SPENDING, and the Tea Party is to blame?

    Hilariously sick and insane. I know the left will hilariously insist that the Tea Party is to blame, because Republicans didn't want to "compromise."

    Compromise on what? Run away spending is runaway spending. Whether it's spending at 50 mph or spending at 100 mph, it's STILL SPENDING, and on MONEY WE DON'T HAVE.

    How do you compromise on bad policies that got us here in the first place?

    But what is Washington's answer from both parties? More of the same.

    And the Tea Party is to blame?

    This is Jimmy Carter's malaise speech on STEROIDS.

    Blame the American people FOR YOUR BAD POLICIES DEMOCRATS. Go right ahead.

    See ya election day November 2012. Malaise guarranteed a landslide for Reagan.

    Let's see what Malaise2011 gets ya!

    BS. The debt ceiling crisis was manufactored and brought by the Teabaggers. They won. Now live with the concequences. Well, lie as much as you can and blame the President and maybe some people will believe you.

    BS. The crisis was brought on by the reckless spending of both parties and Obamas innept attitude towards addressing it until the last minute.

    There was no debt ceiling crisis until the Repupicans/Teafolks made it one. The downgrading was not because of the amount of debt but the brinkmanship playing in DC. Had raising the ceiling been done like it has the past hundred or so times it has been increased(no drama) there would have been no downgrade.

    I think for the most part the American people understand this. We'll see in about 15 months.

    Inept?

    It's generally a bill that consists of one piece of paper.

    The Tea Party chose to make this an issue about future spending.

    Well, okay..if they are so concern about the debt..why no tax increases?

    Cutting spending is just as bad as increasing taxes during a recovery.

    And they don't seem to have a problem with cutting spending.

    Weve been in a crisis for some time and the fact that you didnt even notice until the TP brought it to the attention of the american people shows just how out of touch you are. If we werent in crisis mode then waiting till the last minute wouldnt have mattered. Besides the dems had 2 years to head this off at the pass and accomplished nothing except to add anothe unfunded entitlement to it. You guys couldnt even get your own party to vote to raise taxes before the TP came into office but now of course you want to blame them for not doing it.

    Please show me when, in history, we had a debt to GDP at 75% where it was the kind of issue that it is today.

    Hello.???????????....debt to GDP of 75 fucking percent....

    There was valid fucking reason to not simply "raise the fucking debt ceiling" you fucking obamabot.

    Pardon my language. You guys are pathetic....and I let the frustration get to me.

    My fault....but it felt good.

    Why?

    Becuase they were afraid the tea partyers were going to spit on them as they left the Capitol Building.

    Thats why.
