100 years of creeping Progressivism was not a choice....
MSNBC viewers are obviously not very bright.
Please PING to this poll...
The Demorats doesn’t register a new vote. It’s rigged.
Some of the comments with the po;; make me want to grab these blind liberal idiots and just shake the snot out of them!!!!
I had to laugh at the idiots trying to blame the tea party!
Yes, and the Fed Reserve plus Wall Street were not choices. Congress responded to their wishes since 1912, and still do.
What is the point of playing with these delusional MSNBC types?
How pray tell is the Tea party responsible in any way sharp or form?
This country is nutso.
"The downgrade reflects our opinion that the fiscal consolidation plan that Congress and the Administration recently agreed to falls short of what, in our view, would be necessary to stabilize the government's medium-term debt dynamics," Standard & Poor's said in a press release.
"More broadly, the downgrade reflects our view that the effectiveness, stability, and predictability of American policymaking and political institutions have weakened at a time of ongoing fiscal and economic challenges to a degree more than we envisioned when we assigned a negative outlook to the rating on April 18, 2011," the statement continues.
ITS OBAMA’S FAULT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Boehner and Congress bailed! So We should have left the ball in the Senate’s court rather than dessert our goals! But actually, this is the fault of the Obama administration and Harry Reid just doing what they always intended to do!
It will be interesting to see what else Obama did to us while our eye was focused on the crisis he created!
Total of 3,780 votes
All of the above
Neither was FDR, Lyndon Johnson and Ted Kennedy.
All members of Congress who voted for TARP, the “stimulus” packages” and Obamacare, among other things.
All people who voted for Obama.
Previous admininstrations and their Congresses who assisted the communists in getting to this point.
MSNBC is owned by GE.
The don’t pay taxes then use the savings to build plants in China.
F what MSNBC thinks.
They aren’t involved in this.
Neither does Obama.
Yeah, these people are soaked in ignorance. It makes me want to scream. If this was Bush they would be shouting IMPEACH HIM, but listen.....crickets..
I cannot stand liberals. Destructive, marxist progressive robots. THIS IS OBAMAS FAULT! I’m so angry I could break something!
I think I just had a ministroke. Maybe I’ll sue Obama and get some of my money back.
Hmmmm! Very interesting. The owner of S&P is McGraw Hill.
Pre-Marketing: S&P for sale?
“Big breakup? Activists put pressure on S&P owner McGraw Hill “
Here is more about McGraw Hill:
Since we've let it be squandered, it is time to restore it.
America finally elects a black president and he F*** ups the credit rating. You couldn’t write this script in real life without being called racist.
The anti-Tea Party inane comments seem to be written by the same person, or possibly Obamabots paid to troll comments.
This is interesting becasue I see most of the giant publishers as means to provide payola to leftists. Think Hussians books, the Clintons....
Or possibly MSNBC hosts.
The issue is “truth” or “illusion”.
Obozo is total illusion.
With the USA being downgraded, I suppose Obama can declare MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.
Just went to the Boston Heralds comments page under the downgrade article and they are trashing Obama.
The communist propagandists in the state run "media" do an excellent job telling the gullible morons who live in this country what they are supposed to believe.
The bass turds living in this country today do not deserve to be living here. IMHO.
Those are the deadest, darkest, shark eyes I’ve ever seen.
Poll’s gotta be rigged. 4% blame democrats. LOL! At the very least it should be 40% (going by party affiliation in this nation). That show’s me that at least 96% of MSNBC’s viewers are liberal democrats.
Starting with the Roosevelts, one a “progressive Republican/Bull Moose and the other a european socialist liberal Democrat!!!
Or their viewer.
I blame it on Obama absolutely ballooning the size of government and government spending out of sight since 2009. Fitch, Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s will give back the AAA rating once Obama is booted out of office in November 2012 and we finally prune back government to its proper size and function and get real income tax reform.
John Kerry is a horse’s ass. Listen at 5:20 to end.
rove ... you magnificent bastard
All spending starts in the house. Boner and his fellow travelers.
Cute. They have the votes opposed to the democrats split four ways and the vote against the Republicans in one basket.
