    What's scary is that Obama is still favored to win in 2012.

    The plan is working people! Obama is stripping everyone of their wealth in one form or another.

    Absolutely. S&P is also one of the agencies that had Lehman Brothers rated as "Investment Grade" the day it filed for the largest bankruptcy in American history.

    Should we put our former AAA rating in the GT time capsule?

    The Obama Administration is brilliant. Devaluation of the dollar results
    in the U.S. buying less exports(more expensive and China stuff you guys hate) which switches demand to U.S. production....stop listening to Limbaugh(a college dropout) and study econ...


    Our debt is the result of domestic demand being fullfilled by overseas(China)
    supply....

    The joke's on the free states.

    Non-bankrupt states may see their credit ratings downgraded, but the failed ones like IL, CA, NJ, and MI won't, because you can't downgrade Junk.

    Socialism wins again.

    $451,000,000,000 divided by 311,887,000=$1446.03 per citizen per year-a very decent 1911 every year.
    $3.96 per day=a gallon of gas
    .16cents per hour=what I pay for phone and computer internet per hour




    Oh yea--China Dropped our credit score also:dunno:

    Check the ratings. At least CA isn't junk status. Yet.
