Kerry blames the tea party for credit downgrade - Washington Times Does this guy seriously think people are retarded? Does he really think people are that uniformed? Is he that dishonest that he can try to pelt this crap? Unfuckingbelievable. S&P stated all along, "If the US wants to keep it's AAA credit rating, then THE US MUST CUT SPENDING!!!" There was nothing about raising taxes. In fact, that probably would have been viewed negatively by S&P, as it should have been. But this dishonest joker is now saying the Tea Party is responsible. The Tea Party is responsible for the US not dropping further to a B or C rating. If it wasn't for the Tea Party pressure, the debt ceiling would have been increased without any spending cuts! The tea party demanded cuts to keep the AAA rating, yet the Dimocrats don't have the brains to do it (their socialist base would never allow it) and the Republicans didn't have the ballz to make it happen! While Obama showed the leadership of a community organizer! The one party that is absolutely blameless here is the Tea Party! Kerry has become a punchline!
