“Does anybody now doubt that this is on purpose? I mean, after all, Barack Obama inherits a AAA credit rating from George W. Bush, and look what he does to it. Obama is always running around complaining and whining and moaning about all that he inherited from George W. Bush. Well, he inherited a AAA credit rating, an unemployment rate of 5.7%. Does anybody doubt that this is on purpose?”

Rush Limbaugh

"It reinforces, perhaps, like nothing else has the impression that Obama is overseeing -- and some respects engineering -- the decline of the American republic."

Pete Wehner

“I call on the president to seek the immediate resignation of Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and to submit a plan with a list of cuts to balance the budget this year, turn our economy around and put Americans back to work.”

Michele Bachmann

“If the president were in the Southeastern Conference, he would be fired as a coach. He would not have his contract renewed. Mr. Obama is failing, and it’s not the Tea Party’s fault. What was hope and change is despair and confusion.”

Senator Lindsey Graham

“It ought to push [Congress] more toward reality and the reality is if you spend a buck and borrow 41 cents, you have to be very stupid.”

Alan Simpson

"Markets will rise and fall, but this is the United States of America. No matter what some agency may say, we've always been and always will be a AAA country."

Barack Obama

That's all you have to say? Some kind of underdog high school pep rally cheer for our team? This is serious, Mr. President. You can't just deny the reality before you.

As our president spoke these words the stock market continued to plummet with investors’ ears averted from his words. This guy can continue to blame Bush and the man in the moon as long as he likes but our AAA credit rating being downgraded for the first time in American history during his presidency is an inescapable reality that he has to face.

1,058.3 miles to go.


  1. Comments like "does anyone doubt this is on purpose" or "engineering the decline of the American republic" is just the same as calling members of the tea party "terrorists".


  2. I have to disagree. I don't mean to get too politically correct on you, but pundits can call Tea Party members saboteurs, disgraceful, unpatriotic, stupid, are any other adjective with an equally degrading meaning, but to call this faction of people terrorists is absurd and crossing the line. Think of what images come to mind when you swirl the term "terrorist" around your imagination. All I see is utter desperation. The people slandering the Tea Party obviously have no other explanation or idea to convey the weak foundation of their message other than to resort to such extreme and outrageous claims.

  3. You are right that no good American should be implied to be in the same category as a terrorist. Rush and Pete are implying something just as bad a terrorism... a purposeful sabotaging and betraying of the nation. This is a constant message from people like Rush, Walton and Johnson, etc.
