thanks for upgrading from slight chance to absolutely ******ed......... youre halfway correct........ revisionist history wont work........... and thats why what he said is 100% accurate

they clearly defined the reason why they downgraded........ if anything it leaned more toward the fact that the democrats were playing hardball and the republicans were counter measuring......... democrats had the power.... republicans could do little more than abstain

but in the end as stated by previous posts........ the blame lies squarely on both parties......... the debt didnt happen over night (although despite budget gimmicks 1/4+ falls directly on the current administration)

both parties refused to budge on their principles........ you cant simply blame the minority for failing to roll over to the majority

I guess you could go back to your old standby.... Bush is responsible for the downgrade

blame blame blame........ exactly when do you expect anything to be your responsibility
