    This is so cool! Republicans get yet another crack at damaging the credit rating of the United States. All in order to protect the interests of the wealthy.

    Ya gotta admire their patriotism.

    Oh right, I totally forgot about that. Moody’s, S&P, Finch and all the rest reacted strongly to the political turmoil last time around. Wonder how the analysts will see the failed “Plan B” and the more-than-likely “going over the cliff” that results from a total political breakdown. Well, if the U.S. of A. turns itself into a Banana Republic it should at least have a matching credit rating…

    All Obama talks about is taxes! WHERE ARE THE SPENDING CUTS?

    Nice try, but it got downgraded under the total control of both houses of congress by the democrats. Meanwhile, the democrats have not even attempted to balance the budget.

    There are none. He wants to increase spending.

    Zoid, the downgrade was last year. Republicans were in control of the house, and used America’s credit worthiness to bargain for the fiscal cliff. Get your facts straight. Obama has reduced the deficit every year (something no Republican president has ever done, nor was Romney gong to with his unbalanced budget). Republicans never pay for anything when they’re in power, but when Democrats are in power Republicans force them to pay for anything they want to do, plus everything the Republicans irresponsibly put on credit.

    Yup. Eric Cantor gets another crack at making a profit through the hedge fund he owns shares in that shorts treasury bonds.

    I am also finding this fiscal cliff to be rappelling.

    Sorry, too many interuptions this morning. The president has proposed over $700 billion in spending cuts (I believe that is over a ten year period.)
    The Senate convened this morning to work on a fiscal compromise. Boehner says he will not call the House back unless a bill is passed by the Senate.
    It will take a combination of revenue and spending cuts to get our country in order. What are the spending cuts that the Republicans want? What tax loopholes are they talking about?

    Specifics would be nice, wouldn’t they!?!

    Yes it would.

    If the Republican leaders really believe that the American people SUPPORT their spending cuts, then they should proudly stand up and clearly state what they are.

    But the opposite is the case, which is why Romney had to marginalize Ryan.

    They know their cuts are not popular, so they want Obama to propose them.

    They don’t have the strength of their convictions.

    The hit on credit rating alone is going to be major, I will grant you that.
    .
    But America produces more than bananas, so that reference is pure emotion and detracts from message.
