For those keeping score at home...
S&P revoking the United States AAA credit rating will force us to pay more interest on our bonds, thus increasing our debt when we're forced to pay that interest back to bond holders.
This, naturally, will increase our national debt.
One reason why S&P revoked our AAA rating is because of political turmoil in this country -- indecision and infighting caused our politicians to push the economy to the brink. Which is amazing since we weren't facing an immediate crisis.
Who caused this needless, high stakes political brinkmanship that not only held the economy hostage, but will also increase the national debt? The Tea Party, aided and abetted by their (now) Republican slaves.
Now if President Obama can't hammer away at this obvious and obvious hypocrisy -- and FIGHT against them WITHOUT compromise -- then please don't blame people like myself when he loses in 2012.
I'm so sick of this shit. I thought I voted for a president who would fight for the good of the nation, so what the fuck happened?
