It’s Been 3 Days Since the S&P Downgrade – Obama Has Yet to Release Statement

It’s 3 AM – Nobody’s home

It’s been 48 hours 3 days since Standard and Poors downgraded the US credit rating.

On Friday the United States lost its coveted AAA credit rating. Credit rating agency Standard & Poor’s downgraded the nation’s rating for the first time since the U.S. won the top ranking in 1917. 18 countries now have a better credit rating than the US.

Barack Obama has still not released a statement.

    Not surprised. .heard that the TOTUS is still recovering from a hopping party in the Rose Garden Thursday night. . very hard being his Teleprompter. . . especially for this idiot.

    TOTUS doesn’t know what to say. . . a reduced credit rating and a tumbling stock market were not the HOPE and Change Americans thought they were getting when Obama was elected.

    It’s the Tea Party’s fault 🙁

  • vamoose

    Obama and his advisers haven’t figured out how to spin this. There is a lot of political calculus involved and everything between now and the 2012 election must be taken into account. The nightmare scenario for Obama is a second downgrade. But his dilemma is how to avoid a second downgrade without alienating his base or Republicans. It may take another 24 or 48 hours to figure this out. I expect a couple trial balloons to be floated tomorrow before the Plouffe loads the teleprompter and Obama reprises his vaudeville act.

    Barack Obama has still not released a statement.
    Thats because he is celebrating.
    He has a birthday to celebrate, plus the Navy SEALS were killed by his buds
    ( the taaaaaaleeeebaaaan)
    and then S&P downgrades our country….dude can’t catch a break from celebrating.
    Its been a good ramadan so far

  • Paddy

    In addition to all of the reasons for no comments from Obama, he has his smear merchants working overtime. When there is enough mis-information, deflections, and shooting of the messengers to obscure the ramifications from the debt downgrade, Obama will get on national TV and lie, lie, lie. Of course he will blame it all on Bush, the Tea Party, and republican congressional leaders.

  • rodguy911

    Zero hasn’t been told who to blame yet.
    Its never his fault always GW, the congress,the tea party pats or maybe even that wascally
    S&P who told them that they needed 400 billion per year in cuts but zero was busy playing golf.
    He’s a putz.
    Nothing that happens is ever his fault.

  • Sandy

    Once every Democrat who is interviewed by the Drivebys claims the Downgrade is the Tea Party’s fault and the skids are greased for Obama– then out he will stroll and agree its The Tea Party’s fault.

    No member of what used to be our Media will question Obama’s policies which brought us to this sad state of affairs. Only the American people will know who’s really at fault but nobody cares what we think.

  • BillsBigF150

    Gus, thats exactly what I was going for…LOL. I wonder if he keeps on those goofas glasses, and I don’t care what hot newswoman he’s supposedly married to. (I think Claire Shipman but I’m not sure, it was too shocking when I heard it).

  • squeaky

    obama will make a statement when it’s safe. he needs a 99.999% assurance he won’t be shown up for the empty shell he is. i would think his voting record would indicate how risk adverse he is.

  • sretire05

    It was reported that there is a movie going to be released on October 12, 2012 about the killing of Bin Laden.

    Obama can’t comment on the downgrade. He is too busy writing the script for this fictional movie.

  • Tjexcite

    They are still going thought the focus group at the center for American Progress. Once the key words and attack memes are transmitted though to the media to have the blame coordinated the prompter will be programed.

    He will then read what the results of the focus group from the teleprompterer with not a word from his head. He will do it once the markets are shut down by the circuit breakers when it drops 10%

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Cue the next crisis/distraction.

    What will it be this time? They already did the Blow Up an Oil Rig trick, and the Kill “OBL” trick…

    Which line of though leads me to ask: was there an impending negative story about Obama just prior to the Gabby Giffords shooting? Or any other of the national “interruptive” news stories in the past few years?

    I have my suspicions about the death of Michael Jackson in Bahrain. This happened at the height of the biggest news story in the world — the democracy protests in Iran. Result? BOOM! Iran off the front page, MJ for two weeks straight.

    Watch for another “interruptive” news event, catastrophe, explosion, mass death, or other perfect distraction in the coming week. It’s the prescription for what ails the One and his Communist, America-destroying cohorts.

  • Hera

    Obama has to put his finger in the air to see which way the wind is blowing. Then he will look for a way to spin the news to deflect blame from himself. Today’s talking point is that this is somehow the Tea Party’s fault. One problem for Obama is that the GOP has spent weeks making the point that Obama had NO plan to solve this problem. That is something much of the nation knows.

  • mg4us

    Isn’t it amazing that we hear from China before we hear from Obama?

  • Oh Noes!

  • arnonerik

    You don’t know how hard we worked to avoid this catastrophe but it was inevitable because of the crises in which Bush left the Government and then the situation was aggravated by the intransigence of the Tea Party members of Congress. My personal leadership is what kept the ship of State above water the last 2 1/2 years. You should all be thanking me and since it was just my birthday, a token of your appreciation is appropriate.

  • I just read the transcript from the Presidents weekly radio address, thinking he couldn’t have ignored the downgrade …..

    …but sure enough, not a word. Of course, it might have been prerecorded on Friday so as to give him max time on the Camp David Golf Course.

    I think the script had been written already 😉
    Here is the gist of the new movie script :
    Hussein got so p1$$ed at the US armed forces not being able to kill Osama ,
    that he jumped on Marine1 with Mooch, flew to Abbotabad, landed the chopper on the 3×7 ft roof of Osama’s outhouse,
    he and Mooch jumped out of the chopper, armed with a speech and 2 pounds of arugula,
    they busted down the door, and Mooch jumped Osama and kicked with her $ 700 shoes,
    Mooch stuffed Osama’s face with arugula , while Hussein read his speech,
    Osama killed himself by eating the gun which was a leftover from the gun-running operation .
    Then , people rejoiced and danced in the sreets of Southside of Chicago

    The TEA PARTY is to blame. They insisted on AUSTERITY and that is not part of the PLAN.
    That is all,

  • Don’t hold your breath waiting for any announcement. Two out of three still say the US is triple A. Obama won’t formally comment until the majority downgrade.

  • gus

    Succotash, NOTHING OBAMA has done, has ever EVEN SEEMED to be for the good of America.
    I believe his MARXIST philosophy, led him to be patient when things didn’t work as planned. And now, the whole house of COMMIE CARDS is falling down. It’s all caving in. It’s a lot lot worse than even FOX is saying. Since the day this KENYAN KON-MAN was installed, people have posted about his EVIL INTENTIONS. It is hard to believe that they were wrong. He is not THAT STUPID. He is misguided, Commie, and WRONG. But, by this point, it cannot be argued that what has happened has not been BECAUSE of his MARXIST intentions.
    Obama has reasonable levels of intelligence, unfortunately, his intelligence has been formed and focussed in a MORONIC direction. Add to that his lack of COURAGE. Add to that his PATHETIC, lack of Patriotism and zero manhood. Obama is a COMMIE AFFIRMATIVE ACTION EXPERIMENT gone fantastically wrong. And the LIBTARDS and ELITISTS don’t have the STONES to admit nor recognize how FUXED up, Obama is.

    The tea party didn’t avoid passing a budget for two years.
    The tea party didn’t force anyone to wait until the last minute to pass a budget bill. One that pretty much sucks with a constitutionally challangeable mechanism to produce budget cuts and tax increases.

    It is my hope that he is preparing his “I will not seek nor do I want the 2012 nomination” speech.

    From Barnhardt’s site. As she puts it, “I say what most of you are thinking, but don’t have the b@!!s to say:

    This entire Obama situation is a conspiracy, and I say that without the slightest hesitation. Obama is not a citizen of the United States, he is a puppet front for a cabal of Marxist-Leninsts including Soros, Ayers, Dohrn, Strong, Jarrett and many, many others. These people are enemies of the United States. These people are deeply psychologically damaged, and are capable of ordering people murdered in order to protect themselves and increase their own power. The three dead homosexual black men from Trinity United Church of Christ, Young, Bland and Spencer, all of whom were sexually linked to Barack Obama, were probably the first people specifically murdered by the Obama regime. The hundreds of Mexicans and the two American agents Terry and Zapata were murdered by Operation Fast and Furious in order to advance and increase the power of the Obama regime. These SEALS and the others on board that Chinook today were almost certainly betrayed and murdered by the Obama regime.

    Why did the Obama regime immediately reveal the unit identity of the SPECOPS forces involved in the first place, despite the fact that DEVGRU was highly classified? Why was the personnel composition of the Chinook released IMMEDIATELY today after the helo went down – before even family notifications could be made? WHY? Why would you hand your enemy, Al Qaeda and the Taliban, a massive propaganda coup? WHY?

    I’ll tell you why. Because the Obama regime IS THE ENEMY. They are Marxist tyrants who hold the lives of Americans not just cheap, but in scathing contempt. They will say anything, they will do anything, and they will murder ANYONE in order to protect themselves and consolidate and increase their power. Please, I beg you, for the love of God and all that is good in this world, read the history of the Soviet Union. Read about Lenin and Stalin and how they murdered people without any hesitation. Read about how Hitler was constantly ordering the murder of his own officers. Read about Communist China. Read about Mao and the millions upon tens of millions of murders he ordered. Read about the killing fields of the Communist Khmer Rouge in Cambodia led by Pol Pot. PLEASE. Marxists MURDER PEOPLE. That is what they do. The Obama regime is MARXIST to the bone. If the Obama regime is not stopped, the 30 Americans murdered today in Afghanistan will be just the beginning. I promise you that.

    Wake up, America. We’re under attack. From the Oval Office.

    ..wouldn’t that be cocky? And the Deceiver has great reason to be cocky right now, given the fully-deceived, and the ripe-for-deception portion of the world.

    Cigarette companies once marketed a cigarette called “Black Death”, and it sold like hotcakes. Satan may even take the nation under that flag.

    Pray for Discernment.

    Capital “D”, a Gift.

    …and, be looking upward.

    And where are the massive anti-war protests, that liberals held, in droves, when Bush was President? Hypocrites. Protectors of Obama.

    And where are the War casualty counts, that all the liberal newspapers had on the front page, every day, during the Bush administration? Hypocrites. Protectors of Obama.

    What evil, has descended upon this once great nation, to have this many “citizens” claim they will support this hater of America and the Constitution?

    Thank God, there are even more citizens, that will make Obama a one term President.

    May we one day, root out every single one of these insidious Progressives, out of our governments and educational institutions….and may we never allow them to ever gain a foothold of power again.

    May we also root out hypocrites, like Mark Sanford, who claim to Christian and Conservative….when in reality, he’s a power hungry snake, who did his wife and family dirty, and expects people to do as he says, and not as he does. This so-called Republican sickened me, when I saw the Hannity interview the other night.

    notice how the media has not talked about the deaths of all those soldiers, yet they claim that a newly organized group of people(tea partiers) are responsible for the downgrading of the USA rating. Meanwhile, the rat-in-chief parties barefoot every time our Navy Seals are in a harmful situation. Get this straight- the banking/hedge fund cabal runs the show. They tell govt’s and media what to say and do. They gifted Obumba the presidency in Sept 2008 with the financial “crisis” and now they are telling him who is boss by tanking stock markets on his birthday. The bankers don’t realize that Obumbler has another set of backers: his Muslim brothers and Alinsky terrorist friends.

    From Politico:

    Biden warns Dems may lose Senate

    Biden wrote that: “the stakes are highest” and that Democrats will be defending 23 seats in the next election, including five open ones.

    “Republicans only need to pick up four to take control of the Senate,” Biden wrote.

    From Wikipedia:

    “Democrats are expected to have 23 seats up for election, including 2 independents who caucus with the Democrats, while Republicans are only expected to have 10 seats up for election.”

    This means that Republicans need a net gain of just 4 Senate seats, out of 23 Democrat seats that can be challenged, to take control of the U.S. Senate.

    Advantage: Tea Party

    November 2012 is one year away.

    It’s time to start rolling up our sleeves and getting to work.

    Obama’s offering up sacrifices to the Dark One to insu7re the support and cooperation of the RINOs. He doesn’t care about the debt rating, Soros is buying gold.

  • conservative ken

    People, there is a “Weatherman” in the White House. Pal of Bill Ayres, tool of George Soros. Obama is not stupid, this is part of a plan. It may be too late, but he needs to go NOW! My gut tells me he would actually welcome a Chinese Takeover.

    Rush has joked that there may not be elections. I aint laughing. If the system is broken badly enough, Obama has a slew of Executive Orders at his disposal. We don’t have time to wait until elections.

  • Bill Mitchell

    Powder is dry, brain is empty.

    Why do you INSIST on the violent rhetoric? Why don’t you just change your catch phrase to “gun is cocked”, “match is lit”, “noose is ready”?

    Completely unnecessary and hurts the conservative cause. You literally are doing all you can to help liberals with that kind of language. Maybe it gets your rocks off but it damages all of us by association.

    Seems that I heard a statement and Obama and Geithner both said S & P had it all wrong. Business as usual, blaming the other guy.

    Seems they were most upset with S & P…and S & P said there has been so much bickering between parties and took so long to make a deal that miss the mark by 2 trillion and this is why they made this decision.

    Obama made a weekend address but push come to shove, he has his minions out there all Sunday blaming the Tea Party.

    There won’t be anything done when the White House sets this tone continuing to blame the other guy.

  • Mama Grizzly

    Here it is:

    Steve-Barry-Barack hasn’t made a statement yet because his handlers don’t know how to make him look and sound sorry enough for the public. The guy has to be giddy–he has obscured the fact re: the Odama assassination, has gotten rid of most of Seal Team 6, and has weakened the US economy all on the space of a few days. These are Obama’s flory days.

    I will explain:

    Dictators don’t really feat the population. They fear the military, because the military are the only ones who can stop a power grab. Our Dictator-in-waiting knows this. Dud the Seals know too much? Were they a threat?

    In any case, both the general population and the military were weakened, and the Middle Eastern crazies were strengthened by his actions and inactions.
