    All of this mess has happened under Obamas watch, under Obamas policies and with his blessings. Things can't and won't get better as long as self reflection never happens. Is anyone here willing to be critical of the policies Obama has either pushed for or allowed to remain in place?

    Everyone on the left wants to play, cover your ass and the famous blame game. Most on the right clearly sees the problems but NO ONE on the left will listen. The downgrade happened because S&P warned us we needed at least 4 trillion in cuts and we didn't do it. It's that simple. Everyone that voted for this bill should be recalled immediately. Only the Tea Party put the cuts we needed in writing in a bill. The left bloviated about 4 trillion in cuts but never offered a bill to vote on.

    OBAMAS POLICIES HAVE LED US TO THIS POSITION. HE HAD COMPLETE CONTROL FOR 2 YEARS AND DID NOTHING TO PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING.

    Do you have a link to S&P's press release and statement concerning the downgrade? Is this going to be a fact based thread on " self analysis and critical thinking"?

    after the downgrade can you really trust what the Left says about finances and the economy
    For example PapaObama Care was going to instantly create 400,000 jobs

    Easy one

    S&P also said

    "Standard & Poor’s takes no position on the mix of spending and revenue measures that Congress and the Administration might conclude is appropriate for putting the U.S.’s finances on a sustainable footing."

    "In addition, the plan envisions only minor policy changes on Medicare and little change in other entitlements, the containment of which we and most other independent observers regard as key to long-term fiscal sustainability."


    Really pushing the Left spin on the S&P does not help the cause much

    I've seen it...A good portion of it reads like it was written up by the DNC.

    Problem is progressives do their best to appear "selfless" however they're the most narcissistic self absorbed people around.

    Every progressive has ITS hand out begging for free shit and they demand the government provides for their laziness....

    I just watched the head of S&P on Neil Cavutos show on Fox. He was quit clear that they warned us of the minimal amount of cuts.

    I blame Obama for extending the Bush tax cuts. Had he let them expire, the economy would not be better but would likely not be worse. However, the deficit would not be nearly as great. Unfortunately, the Republicans wouldn't have done anything differently.
