    Back in the 70's we had Americans taken hostage in Iran
    for Political gain
    ... and again we've had Americans taken hostage for the very same reason
    By one of our own political parties

    Don't believe me?
    Listen to the man himself

    In a stunning bit of candor, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) admitted in the Washington Post today that his party had taken the debt ceiling “hostage,” and that some of his colleagues were willing to “shoot[]” it:

    “I think some of our members may have thought the default issue was a hostage you might take a chance at shooting,” he said. “Most of us didn’t think that. What we did learn is this — it’s a hostage that’s worth ransoming. And it focuses the Congress on something that must be done.”

    Standard & Poor highlighted their reason for their downgrade of American Securities as "Political Brinkmanship"
    Especially after their math was wrong by around 2 trillion dollars
    The shoot'em in the head policy of the republican house has nearly brought our economy to a halt
    We need to see that fact and hold them responsible
    These men are terrorists as much as any Taliban member and in a way are even more dangerous because of their political zealotry and the fact that they have their hands around our collective economic necks

    Who knew I occupied such a prominent position in your consciousness? icon_razz.gif

    Mitch McConnell and John Boehner are a slower acting poison compared to the Democrats.

    The Tea Party - to quote Rick Santelli from CNBC yesterday - "is responsible for the fact that the downgrade was just to AA+. Without the Tea Party, we would have been downgraded to BBB."


    No SB


    You can't spin this .... Yet another republican clusterfuk
    This is a rightwing mess and you know as well as I do
    That without these lunatics we wouldn't have had a downgrade AT ALL

    Incorrect.

    The Federal government has been on negative credit watch for months now due to the fact that Obama, Pelosi and Reid are responsible for adding an astonishing $4+ trillion to the debt in just 30 months.


    Based on what besides your fever dreams?

    Who's really spinning here. GQ? Anyone who is either unable or unwilling to admit that there is plenty of blame to go around in this "clusterfuk' is simply being disingenuous. Both sides took part, both sides share blame. Neither side wants to admit that. Hence, "clusterfuk"

    Oh Really?

    Let's see shall we?
    Clusterf**k .... Miltary term for a situation caused by too many inept officers, cluster referring to the insignia worn my majors and LT. Colonels, oak leaf clusters.
    As In....The planning for this operation was a complete cluster fuck.


    Alternatively

    a situation where nothing will go right, casualties will occur, evac will not happen, often engineered by the stupid

    Now being that this would have NEVER occurred where it not for those astoundingly gifted ....in a republican way....... cadre of folks in the House

    How can you say in all honesty
    That Clusterf**k not only applies but fits the VERY DEFINITION

    You got the inept brass
    The poor planning
    The casualties... namely US
    and because it was done to us on a National Level ... the ain't no evac that's gonna be comin' icon_cool.gif
