    After the credit downgrade yesterday I'm wondering how Obama is taking it? I think he may just be secretly celebrating. He was the one to go into foriegn countries and apologize for America's exceptionalism. Michelle said she was proud of America for the first time when hubby was swaorn in. Did he get what he secretly wanted, an America that looks like European countries. Now that we are not so exceptional maybe it will easier to go Global. On the surface I think he will appear to look worried but not so inside. Just an poinion, what say you?

    No for the first time in history we have lost our credit rating. And it was under his watch. They have spent much time bragging about the economy under the watch of the last Dem Pres. So they are going to have to eat this. But you can be sure he is working to deflect blame. He already belly ached to S&P about it. I do not believe he is happy. This will destroy his chances for re-election.

    Wanna bet we wouldn't have kept our credit rating if Obamacare had been repealed?

    2.6 trillion dollars in one swoop.

    If He's Pleased, He's About the....

    .....only one!

    With this decrease in our credit rating comes the sobering realism that he may, in fact, be a one-term POTUS.

    I can hear his supporters slowly and quietly moving to the right. :applause:

    I find this conjecture most revealing of your character. It makes me sad to have read it.

    You May Be Unto to Something, SS!

    This is a great observation... after all, in a close to three years, he's brought us down to the level of quite a few other countries. You may have hit that proverbial nail right smack on the head! :thumbs:

    It must be alright to gossip about people you don't like.

    I think the number one concern of any politician is getting re-elected. Having the U.S. credit rating downgraded and millions of voters losing thousands of dollars in their retirement accounts is not a very smart way of getting re-elected. So I don't agree with you that Obama is secretly pleased with it.

    I believe he is. He is working his plan and it is working perfectly.

    His goal is to drag American lefward into Marxism, and the only real way to do that (says Marx, Engel, Marcuse, et al) is through some form of revolution. We will have the needed revolution when America defaults and the government needs to exercise martial law and suspend the Constitution, and all that happens when the people start crying out for the government to save them (as they already are!).

    We have, in the election of Obama, signed America's death warrant, as time will demonstrate.

    I don't know if he is pleased but no doubt he has calculated that the down grade will help more than hinder him in his quest for higher taxes.

    Jimmy Carter's loving the Obama presidency, he's no longer the worst modern American president.

    Gossip is whispering in your ear hurtful things about others. Obama can listen to me, I don't care. I didn't say I don't like him, I just don't like his Marxism.

    They are incorrect, he is already running, they might be able to stop his run :praying:

    He is already running ads and raising money like mad.
