Tea Party Shutdown? You really think the "Tea Party" is that influential? Where do you get your news, the Al Jeerah Gazette?
Earth to uninformed cartoon boy - the downgrade happened because the debt ceiling was raised and debt increased by $300 billion the next day
I never argue with someone who has a skull as his avatar. Its the sign of economic genius. My apologies for disturbing "the force"
I think that the GOP will suffer a pretty big backlash when the voters go to the polls, and also I think we are seeing The Tea party begin to implode on itself. They are not the kind of people to take defeat with grace, so I think they will try and take down whoever and whatever with them in their fall.
I agree. Sad, but I think it will happen.
bunch of fuqing a-holes! DEMS - take back the house 2014!!!
There was no default
You speak the truth.
Consistent, considering it was downgraded when they were running Wall Street.<br />
Maybe if they take the Senate and presidency in 2014, they can finally cause that Great Depression that they've been trying so hard for. And they can, and will, blame it all on the past policies of Obama.<br />
After all Obama his to blame for every thing else.
