    Don't worry, Barry is on it, he wants another stimulous and a 3.5 trillion dollar budget.

    BTW, he can't blame this one on Bush.

    Now they decide to rate bonds properly?

    NOW?!

    Fuck Moody's

    We wouldn't BE in this mess if they'd rated bonds properly in the first place.

    Moodys and the other rating agency should both be dismantled for the role they played in the crash.

    Well they could have started rating properly about 10 years ago.
    That is THE point I have with the ratings agencies.

    and yet we see continued borrowing and even more spending as this Congress just doesn't get it. Stand by for a major shift in the Congress in November.

    Some one has got to get this runaway spending under control. If it means lowering our credit rating to AA or A...fuck it....someone has got to put a stop to the borrowing, that's the only way we will control spending. Obama, Pelosi and Reid promised fiscal responsibility but have delivered 4 trillion dollars of new debt. Time to take away their credit cards.
