Nice credit rating ya got dere

... shame if anything happened to it.

Republicans have turned a dispute over a technicality into a religious war, which no longer has any relation to a reasonable dispute between the elected government and the opposition.
Look, the damage is already done, with or without a default. The Republicans from teabaggers to alleged mainstream conservatives have clearly demonstrated that the consensus that has held since 1776 - that we're good for our debts - is over. It's not safe anymore for other countries to treat the dollar as the world's reserve currency.

Ya think China is happy or sad about this?

Typical wingnut moron, you've already forgotten who made the surplus vanish into tax cuts for the wealthy and a war of choice.

Those tax cuts were fucking guaranteed to produce a huge economic burst and increased revenues. Bzzt. Nope, another Republican lie.

That war of choice (in Iraq, since I know you wingers need it totally spelled out for you) was fucking guaranteed to find WMD and get America to the pantheon of liberators of Muslims. Bzzt. Republican lie.

Deregulation of financial markets was fucking guaranteed to be safe and economically beneficial. Bzzt. The biggest Republican lie, and they're still pushing it.

What do all these Republican lies have in common? Rich people get to have boners for thousands of extra C-notes. The middle class get boned until their wails hit high C. That's the Republican idea of fairness.
