    China was actually being benevolent to us by giving a AA rating.
    Kissing Communist Chinese cheeks I don't think was in our forefathers' plans.
    My fellow American's, pucker yer' lips, cuz we ain't got no choice!

    Since emerging nations hold 75% of the world's $8.4 trillion of reserves, their credit rating carries more weight than ours.
