WWBS?- America’s Downgrade a First

“Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.” Albert Einstein

So is there still credibility in this administration? It appears that all of the speeches, press briefings and political grandstanding have come to a head. From Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, to Senator John “I’ve served in Vietnam” Kerry, can’t anyone in the Democrat Party take responsibility? You can’t tell me that this downgrade came as a surprise? And how did David Axelrod get into the mix?  

WWBS? What What Bull Squish or better yet What Would Barry Say? Do I see another round of golf or another family trip sometime soon? No comment from the Commander In Chief. America was lead to believe then Senator Barack Obama was the smartest man in the room, America’s best hope to turn our struggling economy around from the brink. Well it seems we have met up with brink again.

What we have witnessed is a parent leaving the keys to the family car to the unlicensed, untested, and unproven fourteen year old. Not having any record or any creditable history to back these claims we Americans are the ones that will suffer for inexperience.

For Senator John Kerry and David Axelrod to push blame onto the Tea Party shows their level of professionalism and maturity. Speaker crafted a budget bill that would have cut way more, but President Obama threatened to veto before reading. Who was more serious about our economic situation the President or the so called Tea Party wing of the GOP? This is not a game where you can just pick up your ball and go home.

The United States has a serious debt issue hanging over our heads and we can not find one serious elected official in Washington to confront our threat with any degree of professionalism. Obama’s course of action would to be raise taxes and spend more money. That is what got us here in the first place.

This is a game for big boys and serious contenders, not for the childish, thumb sucking, snot wiping bratty kid. S&P downgraded the U.S. for one reason and one reason alone, we can not pay our debt.

May God see us through this season and bless our men and women in uniform.
