    are now acting as if the credit downgrade is a disaster,

    and it's Obama's fault?

    Seriously? Did they really think default would not also lead to a credit downgrade??

    Didn't they think that default would be no big deal? That we'd just pay the interest and everything would be fine??

    Obama wanted a default, remember? He kept saying there would be one when there was no chance of it happening. Sorry to have to remind you of reality. Too bad republicans caved to the dems and we got this piece of shit legislation that did nothing to help the debt situation. But at least the debt ceiling got raised. yay

    You won't believe this, but I have been told here by someone that critical thinking is nothing but a right wing concept.

    I should have said, 'thank you' but I think I just posted :cuckoo:.

    Then why were all the libs screaming like banshees that if we didn't raise the limit that our credit would be downgraded. Well, hells bells, look at just what happened. We went further into debt and STILL got downgraded. Anyone who knows how to balance a checkbook knew this was coming due to our reckless, irresponsible behavior.

    So you just ignore what the very people who downgraded us said about WHY they did it?

    Indeed,

    killing jobs NOW

    Analysis: Job Growth Was 10-Fold Higher Before the Democrats Passed Obamacare

    “Private-sector job creation initially recovered from the recession at a normal rate, leading to predictions last year of a “Recovery Summer.” Since April 2010, however, net private-sector job creation has stalled. Within two months of the passage of Obamacare, the job market stopped improving. This suggests that businesses are not exaggerating when they tell pollsters that the new health care law is holding back hiring.”

    Sherk writes that Obamacare “discourages employers from hiring in several ways:

    Michele Bachmann voted against raising the debt and definitely did want to default;

    now she's ranting about how the president is to blame for this horrible downgrade.

    She WANTED a downgrade, and more. As did any and all conservatives who were willing to default.
