WASHINGTON (AP) Two senators and former presidential candidates say Standard & Poors decision to downgrade the U.S. credit rating speaks to the need for more bipartisan compromise but they also say the blame lay with the other party.

They are part of the problem.
Explain to me again what the difference is between The Republican Party and The DemocRAT Party?
Try to use monosyb....monosylaba.....monosbly......short words.
And this is from the John Kerry that just said tea partiers’ opinions, views, and statements shouldn’t be reported in the media.
Take your bipartisan work and shove it straight up your asses, you traitorous bastards!
Asking two clueless people who helped cause the problem how to solve the problem could be useful if we realize that whatever they suggest, we should do exactly the opposite.
Kerry has been virtually silent for months! Why bother to speak up now? Looking to get on the gang of 6??
Other than serving in Vietnam...what has he done????
Kerry, President Downgrade, Reid, Pelosi, and such, represent their Vision for the leading edge of the Democratic Party Movement - the TEAT Party.
Next up: The Kerry-McCain Tax & Spend Act.
Kerry and McStain. Both unfit for command.
McCain is moving back into RINO mode. He already won reelection by pretending to be a conservative. It’s sad that AZ conservative voters fell for it.
McCain also temporarily acted like a conservative since many people see the failed presidential candidate as a party leader, until a new candidate is nominated. So Republicans convinced him that as a reward for the nomination he should stop stabbing the party in the back for a few years.
Also McCain is a sore loser, so after the election he was more angry against Obama than the Republican Party.
From Para-Ord.45, yesterday comes this quote, which needs to be stated often!
-S&P exec John Chambers,
But $4 trillion would be a good down payment. We thought that..if policy makers could deliver the goods on that, then that would be a strong sign on our political scores and eventually on our projections on the fiscal side.
S&P has already said it may slash the Triple-A rating if a debt ceiling deal is not accompanied by what it deems is a credible plan to cut the $14.3 trillion federal [debt] by $4 trillion.
S&Ps Chambers is saying the ratings agency wants to see at least a $4 trillion deal, one that would come with bipartisan support.
There was only ever one plan that did what S&P said was required $4 trillion in cuts with bipartisan support. Thatd be Cut, Cap, and Balance a plan that cut $4 trillion and got bipartisan support in the House of Representatives.
As Democrats tonight, and some Republicans, lash out and blame the Tea Party for causing the United States to lose its credit rating, it is worth pointing out that only the Tea Party offered up a plan to avoid what happened.-

Sorry, should have pinged you to your own post...which I reposted.
No matter how it turned out, the American people would win.
Most of what these two, old, senile dinosaurs say is completely irrelevant, if not downright stupid. A RINO and a PINKO...both yesteryear's news. Go home to your rocking chairs, boys...nobody with any savy gives a crap about what either one of you has to say.
Both major leage @$$ holes.
Tweedledee (McCain) and Tweedledum (Dean)
Tweedledum and Tweedledee
went down to Washington DC
they take from all a goodly sum
to fill the pockets of Tweedledee and Tweedledum
Tweedledum and Tweedledee
make fun of the Tea Party
but soon the reckoning will come
the downfall of Tweedledee and Tweedledum
Getting fire hydrants moved from in front of his house.
TERM LIMITS...throw em all out.
