The jerks (Congress/Obama) are gonna do what their gonna do & they're gonna do it "in time" & we're STILL gonna have our credit rating downgraded. End of story. Too bad none of the pricks who are just NOW worried about whether or not Moody's will downgrade our credit rating weren't listening to (instead of making fun of) Glenn Beck a few years ago. I think that's why this story is such a snooze.
Glenn Beck has been talking about the credit rating being downgraded since at least as far back as February 6, 2008...when President Bush was still in office. Here's what Glenn said on radio while interviewing economist Stephen Moore in '08:
GLENN: Here’s why it won’t last. Because you cannot put something that large on the table without addressing Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security already. The credit of the United States will be downgraded, the rest of the world will know we’re not serious by any stretch of the imagination. In a very short period of time foreign governments will say, I’m not loaning these people any money because they can’t pay it back.Go here to read the rest of this post on GlennBeck.com.
I think it is hilarious that FOX News has most of their weekday & primetime "talent" on the air on a SUNDAY, for the 2nd week in a row. Cavuto was supposed to be on LIVE tonight at 8PM CST on the FOX Business Channel to "cover the Asian markets." Oh, the drama of it all.
If Congress really does pass and make into law their new "agreement," I'll be amazed (& glad that it's over). Sunday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi had this to say:
Pelosi said she would be meeting with House Democrats about the compromise measure on Monday.Read the full article here.
"We all may not be able to support it or none of us may be able to support it," Pelosi said, indicating Democrats would want to study the plan.
