    Do you want to explain how Obama hurt our credit rating? That is not what S&P says....

    We have never come close to doing this. When the Republicans just toyed with the idea of it, it got our credit downgraded for the first time in American History.
    To be honest I think defaulting on the debt wouldn't be seen as a bad thing among certain people. I don't think it will happen on October 17th though. I think we'll find a way to pay interest for a little while, whether that's more accounting games or what. And you could say that we have defaulted on our debt before.

    This thread is NOT for debating whether or not you agree with the shut down, whose at fault, etc. PLEASE park your partisanship at the door. This poll is for a bit of fun.

    When do you think the government reopens, and if you want, why? (Please see the previous request).

    Let's see who out of us manages to be good prognosticators at the end of this whole thing.
    Forgot the selection stating: "After at least 3 million more illegals cross the border."
    That's what the libs are hoping for while the border patrol gets their hands tied even tighter with this bull***t.

    The US credit rating has remained unchanged EXCEPT for the downgrade the came as a result of the threat of not raising the debt ceiling. If you read the article you would realize that S&P primarily blamed Congress but then wrapped it up in a general indictment of the American political climate. Having facts, figures and cites provides the balls and brains that lets me make that statement.

    You, on the other hand, simply shot from the hip.... and as most people shoot from the hip, you pretty much hit your foot as your original assertion is a giant fail. Increasing your debt is not the same thing as hurting your credit rating.
