    Yep, conservatives -- especially Texas conservatives -- would never engage in revisionist history.

    Here's why we were downgraded

By the way, how many months do you think think country can sustain losing 500,000 to 800,000 payroll jobs per month? Wait, before you answer, here's a clue since that is what happened for 9 months between October, 2008 and June, 2009 ... 6 million payroll jobs were lost and the unemployment rate skyrocketed 44% from 6.6% to 9.5%.

    So did you pay for it out of your own pocket, or are you just another welfare dependent?

    Which hospital were you treated at, and does it take any fed money?

    Sounds like the GOPs "welfare for me, but none for thee"

Only if you justify spending 3.7 trillion dollars a year in govt. spending do we have a revenue problem. By the way, thought Obama ended the wars and closed GITMO thus there hasn't been any expense the last 2 1/2 years. I believe S&P knows that the wars aren't as costly as they were during the Bush years. Adding 4 trillion in the last 2 1/2 years didn't help the credit rating.
    Spending is a republican problem. The repubs cant help spending other peoples' money
