“White House adviser blames tea party for downgrade”
“AP – 4 hrs ago….”
“WASHINGTON (AP) — A top White House adviser is blaming the downgrade of the U.S. credit rating on tea party Republicans, whom he says were unwilling to compromise on how to reduce the federal debt.”
“The adviser to President Barack Obama, David Axelrod, tells CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday that the decision by the Standard & Poor’s credit agency to downgrade the U.S. from AAA to AA+ for the first time was strongly influenced by weeks of standoff between Democrats and Republicans over the debt.”
“Axelrod calls the action, in his words, “a tea party downgrade” and says it’s clearly on the backs of lawmakers who were willing to see the country default to get their way.”
“Axelrod also criticized GOP presidential candidates for not speaking up in favor of compromise.”
I for one dislike both parties. But until we can change our political system to support a 3rd or 4th party we are gonna have more problems because nierther group give a damn about WE THE PEOPLE they only give a dman about themselves.
We don’t have a government for the American people we have a syndicate and all of organized crimes attributes are being utilized. Hitmen, extortionists, protection racketeers, gunrunners, pimps, hookers and money launderers,, (and probably drug dealers) all of it. I have heard that the syndicate is now pledging 100 million dollars to Somali pirate famine relief. The entire guvmint has become like Scarface Al Capone’s Chicago.
