From Standard and Poor’s official website:
Because the U.S. has, relative to its ‘AAA’ peers, what we consider to be
very large budget deficits and rising government indebtedness and the
path to addressing these is not clear to us, we have revised our outlook
on the long-term rating to negative from stable. (emphasis mine)
Of note there, is the recognition of our huge debt problem, and the failure of our Congress and President to seriously address this issue. The path to addressing our dangerous debt problem is not clear to the analysts at Standard and Poor’s, simply because the irresponsible spending that is responsible for trillion dollar deficits continues unabated. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that President Obama and the Liberal Democratic party in charge of the U.S. Senate refuse to cut back on a government so bloated that we will no longer be able to pay our bills on time in the very near future. The United States credit card is maxed out, and now the mathematically challenged tyrants in the Democratic party, along with Barack Obama want to raise the debt limit on the credit card drawn on the taxpayer’s account. The end result in this game will be more taxes slapped onto the backs of an already hurting working class in America.
Pictured at the left is former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. I provide the picture lest we forget just who she is, as she has been prettymuch missing in action during the recent massive budget battles in Congress. Gone are the times of her daily idiotic TV statements such as the infamous, ” We have to pass the Health-care bill to see what’s in it ” statements. So what is going on with the self-appointed San Fran Queen of the far left Liberals ? This woman is largely responsible for the last four years of crushing debt that got pushed onto the American people while she was ramrodding the leftist agenda through Congress unabated. With the debt ceiling fight looming in Congress that will prove to be a serious expose’ of just what Pelosi’s maniacal actions as Speaker have done to America, it now appears that Obama and company are shunning her and pushing her into irrelevance. Enter Pelosi’s long time House Democratic nemesis, one Steny Hoyer.
It now appears that when it comes to the budget/debt ceiling battles in Congress Steny Hoyer ( D-MD) is the person who is now leading the Democratic house minority, not Nancy Pelosi. With Obama in perpetual campaign mode today for the 2012 elections, this move appears to be an attempt to distance himself from the radical leftist Liberal agenda that he demanded from Congress the past two years. This is an obvious attempt to fool the voters into thinking Obama has moved to the center, and all we have to do is look at the trillion dollar deficits he continues to pile onto our children’s backs to see how disingenuoushe truly is there. Hoyer is playing the part of a Blue Dog, bipartisan-worshipping moderate perfectly today. This has to be just what the Obama handlers are demanding in keeping in line with his fake move to the center propaganda for reelection. Over at The Hill.com we see the following headline:
Obama-Hoyer bond forms as Pelosi rejects budget deal.
The informal alliance has propelled the minority whip into the spotlight of the spending debate, bolstered his reputation as a centrist deal-maker and even led some Democrats to suggest he should lead the caucus in the looming talks over raising the nation’s debt limit.
I find it quiet interesting that when, for four straight years, we watched as Steny Hoyer promoted the far left agenda that is largely responsible for our massive debt problem of today, yet all of a sudden he is being painted as some sort of centrist politician concerned with our debt problems. I find this similar to Charlie Sheen being made the CEO of the Betty Ford drug addiction enter. Hoyer has had a huge hand in America’s massive deficits for four straight years, and we are supposed to believe that he is some kind of savior? He voted in lockstep with Pelosi’s far left Liberal big government expansion agenda at every turn, yet we are being led to believe that he is all of a sudden some type of Blue-Dog Democrat who wants to cut back on big government and install some fiscal sanity into our government today? Get real folks, this is all a nasty game of trying to make Obama appear as a born again centrist while he destroys what’s left of America if he is reelected in 2012. I,m not buying it and apparently neither is the much-respected Standard and Poor’s rating index. Scroll back up there to the first paragraph, and then you decide if you believe this nonsense that Hoyer and Obama are actually working to cut spending and get our debt down to a manageable level.
