I am so Pissed off right now I think I could chew through adamantium!
The first downgrade in America’s credit rating happened at the last second of the business week yesterday and you know that both parties, but most especially the Democrats are strategizing on who to blame (the other guy) for this turn of events that could easy hurt every single american alive and to come.
They aren’t really worried about doing anything substantial about the problem that led to this. They are all on holiday after successfully managing to fix the political problem they got themselves into. That was the “debt deal” made on Tuesday.
They just don’t have the maturity or the political will do deal with the ACTUAL problem.
And the Democrats and their Media apparatchiks are already denying it’s anyone’s fault but theirs.
And the Republican haven’t got the balls to deal with it. They caved last week.
So the Titanic has now struck the iceberg that was in full F*cking View. But it’s not their fault!
It’s the Rightwingers!
It’s The Left Wingers!
It’s The Tea partiers!
It’s Bush’s Fault!
And the American people are just as immature. They can’t handle the truth either.
And the ones that can, they’ll be to blame for it because they bring it up.
Ignorance is Strength! Ignorance is Bliss!
And “The Other guy” Is an Asshole!
And above all, it doesn’t “feel” right!
The self-delusions and the hyper-partisanship is so out of control I’m not sure there is any hope left.
Obama and his policies can’t possibly be to blame. After all, as the Left maintains all the Spending he’s done is because of all of Bush’s Spending!
It can’t possibly be their fault!
And not enough Republicans own up to the problem either.
So ultimately, the people who are yelling “It’s the Iceberg Stupid!” are going to be to blame as the ship of state sinks and takes everyone with them.
And the idiot sheep will believe them.
AND THAT PISSES ME OFF!
The ratings action immediately fueled partisan wrangling Friday night. Allies to President Obama said it underscored his call for a “grand bargain” that would trim $4 trillion from the federal budget involving a mix of tax revenue and spending cuts.
Do now the Republicans will be blamed for it because they didn’t heed President Obama’s call for a “grand bargain” and the Liberal Media will beat us to death with this Talking Point.
Only problem is, there was a “grand bargain” on the table (actually two if you count the Ryan Budget) but the Democrats demagogued it as trying to throw “grandma off a cliff” and trying to “kill Medicare” and “well, if we don’t have more revenue we won’t be able to pay Social Security and Medicare” and all the other extortions they trotted out.
So it was the Republican’s fault for proposing a grand bargain, then after the downgrade it was the Republicans fault for agreeing to Obama’s version of it (which he never actually proposed by the way- speeches are not legislation).
So we’re all damned if we do and damned if we don’t. But at least it’s not anyone’s fault!
In short, the Democrats will blame the Republicans for the downgrade for not agreeing to the “grand bargain” THEY REFUSED to even vote on or consider!
And the Liberal media will trumpet this to the highest.
And stupid people with very short memories will buy it!
And the Republican will whine and complain. But no one, certainly no one in the Liberal Media will care about the Actual Truth.
And certainly not CUT SPENDING!
They’ll only care about the politics of it all!
The Drug Addicts just OD’d and we all get hammered.
Mind you, Standard & Poors itself is far for Lilly white and godly since they refused to deal with the fake credit run (Fannie and Freddie and Co.) up that led to all this.
So everyone is to blame, but no one will take it. No one is mature enough to face reality.
It will be given to those who pointed it out — The Tea Party.
And everyone will vent on them.
And it will “feel” good.
Meanwhile, the ship continues to sink.
4/19/11: Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said Tuesday there is “no risk” the U.S. will lose its top credit rating amid a new analysis that revised its outlook on American debt to “negative.”
Well, as usual, Turbo Tax was wrong. But don’t expect the liberal to remember. Hell, they can’t even remember Obama’s Civility Speech in Tucson 7 months ago when they call people who disagree with them “terrorists”.
So let the Blame game commence!
And everyone will argue that the house is on fire but they are not to blame and no one is going to do anything real about it. But at least it won’t be their fault!
So get ready for the Solution: Spend More and TAX everyone more!
After all, it’s Bush’s Fault! 🙂
