I wonder if the Teleprompter in chief will use the MoveOn.org talking points blaming the Tea Party or George Bush.

Let me guess: There is nothing to fear but Fear itself? And even that is Bush’s fault.

Fannie and Freddie and ratings cut for several of the main arteries of the US

financial system—the Depository Trust Co. National Securities

Clearing Corp., Fixed Income Clearing Corp. and the Options

Clearing Corp.—were cut one notch to AA-plus.

"Corporate Jets", "Tea Party Downgrade", "Balance", "Fair Share">

That should cover it.

Since his surrogates hit the Sunday talk show trail and blamed everything, from the Tea Party to Bush to S&P itself, wonder what else he could have to say? Same ole, same ole I'm afraid!
