    Not from a Republican president. The so-called entitlement programs Social Security, Medicare are paid by payroll taxes. Social Security currently has a $2.6 trillion surplus in U.S. Treasury's. A Republican would give that money to the crooks on Wall Street.

    I believe he would have done similar damage, only a little less and at a slower pace. Given the option I prefer that the Democrat be the one to bring us to the brink of destruction as a nation.

    I would have to count you as a sour liberal. So it makes sense. You might want to check your underwear. Sometimes they are a little bit too tight. They could be the source of your discomfort with yourself.

    Yep, a sour lib that donít like abortion and packs heat when he goís to work.

    Better get a new crystal ball, the one your using is pretty well useless.

    Re: United States loses its AAA Credit rating from S & P

    The bottom line for this thread is that the US suffered a downgrade in the rating of this country, and instead of studying the path that brought us he for the first time in nearly 100 years we have repubs politically assigning blame not totally without merit to Obama, and demos calling everyone names, and wanting to ramp up what pushed us over the edge...downright stupid if you ask me.

    You got it all wrong, this downgrade is all on the republicans be it perry, bachman,or romney.This horse shoe will be hung around the neck of whoever wins the republican nomination.
