    well the SHEEP have been given their MARCHING ORDERS. .DON'T LET THEM GET AWAY WITH THIS..

    The Daily Caller – Sun Aug 7, 3:12 pm ET
    The left-wing activist group MoveOn.org picked up the new liberal slogan bashing conservatives for Standard & Poor’s U.S. credit rating downgrade: “Tea Party downgrade.” President Obama’s chief campaign strategist David Axelrod and Massachusetts Democratic Sen. John Kerry both used the phrase on Sunday talk shows.

    In a Sunday afternoon email to supporters, MoveOn.org accused tea partiers of being responsible for the first-ever credit downgrade in U.S. history. “This ‘tea party downgrade’ is a shameful blow to our nation’s honor and risks throwing us right back into recession,” Moveon.org wrote. “Worst of all? It was completely avoidable. But when given the choice between extremist posturing and responsible leadership, tea party Republicans chose wrong.” (RELATED: Axelrod: ‘This is essentially a tea party downgrade’)

    MoveOn.org added that “now, amazingly, they’re trying to pin the blame on Democrats.”
    :eusa_whistle:

    Credit ratings agency Standard & Poor downgraded the United States credit rating from AAA to AA+ with a negative outlook on Friday evening.

    MoveOn.org asked its supporters to share an image of a mock headline reading “Heckuva Job, Tea Party!” via Facebook and email.

    Isn't it odd how a bunch of intelligent, independent thinkers all have the same ideas at the same time? :lol:

    Move.on.org's thinking is like the guy that has un-protected sex with a meth addicted hooker and gets Aids, then blames the condom makes because he failed to use one.

    If the government had done everything the TEA PARTY wanted we wouldn't have gotten Aids, I'm sorry I meant been downgraded.

    The TEA Party didn't have the votes to pass anything. It's the Democrat/Republican Downgrade and you know it.

    Don't go along with the establishment lies.

    you're right, they didn't.

    but they did have the ability to block things, and they did have the ability to hold some politicians to a stupid pledge not to raise any taxes at all - to the point that they said they'd rather default.

    the downgrade is very accurately attributed to them.

    How can anyone be so stupid r so blind as to really think its the tea party' fault we got a downgrade

    How do you liberals explain Obama having the house and senate for 2 years and didnt do shit now the tea partys been in the house a few months so you blame them. Thats all I ever hear from the left is name calling and finger pointing.
