Even the Huffington Post is getting tired of President Obama’s “now is the time to focus on jobs” broken record rhetoric. So much so that they compiled a video montage of all the times Obama has pledged a laser-like focus on the economy:


*****

This just in: Standard & Poor’s has downgraded the US credit rating for the first time ever.

Fingers will be pointed now, and a popular excuse will be that the Tea Party caused this by fighting an automatic debt increase, thus making markets nervous. But S&P’s downgrade has nothing to do with the debt ceiling battle per se — the downgrade is because the deal didn’t contain enough deficit reduction measures. US borrowing is now over 100% of GDP. A downgrade was inevitable. The irony in the coming “it’s the Tea Party’s fault” meme is that in actuality, the “cut, cap and balance” proposal endorsed by Tea Party members of Congress most likely would have averted a credit rating downgrade!

Our first clue that a credit downgrade was on the way was back in April, when Turbo Tim Geithner said there was no risk that it could happen. Geithner couldn’t correctly predict tomorrow’s sunrise.

Let’s now sit back and watch how the Dems blame Bush for this one.

Update: Jim DeMint calls for Geithner’s resignation. The unfortunate fact is that none of this can begin to be fixed until next November.

    Now this is hillarious ! Huffpo pissed at Teh Won to the point that they`ve compiled evidence that TheOneTheyHaveBeenWaitingFor is full of "Shovel-Readiness" !

    My Mini-Mag single AAA battery Solitaire flashlight makes a better laser than Oblameless`s !

    AA+ is bigger than AAA, isn`t it ? What, countries don`t run like batteries ?

    I hope some good Tea Party conservative Republican(s) are paying attention; the campaign slogans are writing themselves !

    They are attacking from the left in that he "caved" to the right. They want him to go farther left and faster yet he is being held hostage.

    Wow…the liberal Huffy makes a video like that BEFORE the conservitives? Is Huffy going to join the tea party now?

    I think we should rate the economy like bra sizes: A, B, C, double D, Triple F…
    It would have more meaning.

    The government doesn't create jobs.

    But the government certainly can KILL jobs.

    The government needs to GTFOOTW by pulling back job kill regulations and bureaucracy and let our capitalist economy do what it does best.

    Amazing; HuffPo is carrrying water for the Republican National Committee. If this keeps up Dennis Kucinich is going to beat El Presidente in the New Hampshire primary next January.

    And when a biz moves off shore to find cheaper labor and fewer regs so it can "stay" in operation, it`s the biz who is evil and catches all manner of blame !

    I`m seeing in a few places calls for "Turbo-Tax" Timmy to resign, I`d prefer a good ol` fashioned public flogging, but so far nothing about him or anyone else in this crap-weasel administration considering it ! Frank-n-Dodd said Fannie and Freddy were in fine shape too without repercussions, so who`s surprised ?!
