    IT'S OFFICIAL: The Whole World Thinks Republicans Are Dangerous Maniacs Threatening Everyone

    Yes, the rest of the world is watching this embarrassing debt ceiling nonsense, and it is growing dismayed.

    Der Spiegel has a roundup of commentary in German newspapers about the fight, and the universal message is this:

    The US is holding the entire world hostage, and it's the Republicans that are playing with fire.

    Not one person gives a shit... other than a bunch of rather hysterical liberals.

    I doubt any of those on the right will read this. It uses too many big words like "profligacy" and "consequences".

    The office of 'Vice Imperial Panic Mongering' releases numerous 'Official Statements' every day, as a normal course of business. It is what they get paid for.

    Then the Whole World can step in and pay us back for helping them out all these years.

    Nothing new about them getting what's happening here all wrong. Do any of them really think that a country the size of the US can go from Bush's highest annual defficit in 2008 of 438-billion to Obama's annual budget deficits of a 1.4-trillion annually, and think that is a good thing for the world economy? And the president completely refuses to cut spending from his new baseline, and the only constraint on his budget nightmares is the Republican's in congress.

    You just quoted the German newspapers. And you didn't even link to Speigel, but what a blog said Speigle said, which is not the same thing by a country mile.

    I don't quite consider the Germans to be experts on sanity. They have a history.

    As for what is going on here. This is the way we do things. It is like our national Opera. The French have Figaro, the Germans do the ring cycle, the Spanish like Carmen, the Italians like Tosca...... And us, we do Rigoletto..... the tragedy of clowns.

    Speigel did a collection of quotes. Among which were:

    from the Hot Dog times.


    The World writes
    Build says
    The point of all these articles is that all of DC is to blame for the crisis, and we need to drag all these idiots out of kindergarten and demand they all behave like adults.
