But I'm not interested in dredging up that past. What I thought was most interesting about the reporting on hurricane irene was that many of the northern states where it struck were already having the wettest august on record BEFORE it hit. No one mentioned it but isn't it a bit odd to be having record rain fall in AUGUST?

lol, climate change

You did dredge up the past. Deal with it.

OK. How about this: Obama ended his vacation BEFORE the hurricane hit, not afterwards.

oh wait, no it wasn't.




actually the rating agencies stated that the downgrade was because not enough was done to decrease the deficit and debt, not due to the threat of defaulting That would be because the dems would not cooperate.

nice try though

no it was not because the democrats would not cooperate. the rating agency - the same one that gave a thumbs up to all those subprime mortgages that CAUSED THE FUCKING RECESSION IN THE FIRST PLACE - had publicized their decision to downgrade long before that latest round of arguments was even in the news

one of the reasons not enough was done to decrease the debt and deficit is because they refused to increase revenues. they won't raise taxes on the wealthiest people in the country who can easily afford it because of the myth that because they're "job creators" taxing them more hurts the economy. trickle down economics is a lie.

it's tired because it's true and people like you refuse to accept that said 1.8 trillion is because of the past ten years of war and general fuckery.

There was never any argument about raising the debt ceiling when commander guy was in charge and doubled the national debt. Now all of a sudden republicans couldn't get behind raising the debt ceiling without equal cuts in spending and under no circumstances would they ever support raising taxes or letting even some of the bush tax cuts expire as they were supposed to. The nutbag wing of the republican party (tea baggers) publicly called for default. Most of the republican plans, which called for EVEN MORE TAX CUTS were a total joke when scored by the CBO and would have left us in an even worse state financially.

Who the fuck are you trying to kid that this was the democrats fault? Welcome to a manufactured crisis with real world consequences.


When told they were responsible for our national downgrade, tea party members cheered.

BORKED



What the dems should have done was tie the debt limit increase to the deal that extended the bush tax cuts for two more years as well as extending unemployment benefits for one year.

You mean when the house and senate belonged to the dems supermajority? And made all the spending and budget decisions?

they didn't make all the spending and budget decisions, the GOP controlled both houses for six of those eight years then still maintained control during the last two when they lost one house by a handful of votes.
