Thanks Barack… Moody’s Threatens to Downgrade US Again Thanks to Monstrous Obama Debt

Thank you, Barack Obama.

Obama has generated more debt so far in his term than was accumulated from 1791 through halfway through W’s 1st Term. (Third Base)

Moody’s threatened to downgrade the US again thanks to the massive debt accumulated during the Obama years.
Yesterday the US dropped to 7th place on the Global Competitiveness Index thanks to the Obama debt and deficits.
Forex Live reported:

WASHINGTON (MNI) – The following is the text of a statement Tuesday
by rating agency Moody’s:

Budget negotiations during the 2013 Congressional legislative
session will likely determine the direction of the US government’s Aaa
rating and negative outlook, says Moody’s Investors Service in the
report “Update of the Outlook for the US Government Debt Rating.”

If those negotiations lead to specific policies that produce a
stabilization and then downward trend in the ratio of federal debt to
GDP over the medium term, the rating will likely be affirmed and the
outlook returned to stable, says Moody’s.

If those negotiations fail to produce such policies, however,
Moody’s would expect to lower the rating, probably to Aa1.

Moody’s views the maintenance of the Aaa with a negative outlook
into 2014 as unlikely. The only scenario that would likely lead to its
temporary maintenance would be if the method adopted to achieve debt
stabilization involved a large, immediate fiscal shocksuch as would
occur if the so-called “fiscal cliff” actually materializedwhich could
lead to instability. Moody’s would then need evidence that the economy
could rebound from the shock before it would consider returning to a
stable outlook.

Moody’s notes that it is difficult to predict when during 2013
Congress will conclude negotiations that result in a budget package. The
Aaa rating, with its negative outlook, is likely to be maintained until
the outcome of those negotiations becomes clear.

  • Republicans have got to be better at driving home that the budget that the administration is working with is the budget that the Democrats created. They also need to educate America about baseline budgeting that also balloons the Federal Debt.

    Think about it. Their convention was the Dems last chance to present their BS unopposed. Now we have 2 months of more bad economic data before the election and Romney/Ryan can countermamd every Obama move.

    The fact that Romney continues to win Independents by double digits in every poll should be scarinh Team Obama.

    I predict Romney moves back into the lead by next week and never looks back. Occams Razor: Obama will lose because he is a bad President.

    There goes the liberal line blaming Republican opposition for the credit downgrade. Now it’s because the Dems want to hit the fiscal cliff.

  • Monkey Wrench

    Who cares if Moody’s downgrades us? It has no effect. Moody’s rating of the U.S. is meaningless.

  • valerie

    You cannot get rid of a deficit like that with employment numbers like this:

    I fully agree that the revenue stream needs to increase, but I don’t see that BO’s policies to expand payments to government workers and to his friends have resulted in enough new jobs. That makes sense, because 1) the government is so much less efficient as a means of job creation than the private sector, so that depriving the private sector of funds to make hires in favor of the government is counterproductive, and 2) no reasonable investor will throw money at every plan that comes along, so long as it is cobbled together by “friends.”

  • Where’s the MF money Jon?

    The downgrade is one thing. I’d be more concerned if the regime announces it is going to focus on the economy like a laser.

    Even fewer people will buy freshly minted US bonds….and …Ben ” Bernie Madoff ” Bernakie will have to INCREASE FED counterfeit printing of cash to cover the annual trillion dollar deficits ….That means $6 gas within 1-2 years…$20 for a pound of ground beef….$9 for a loaf of bread….while you remain STUCK at $11 an hour flipping burgers…and your foodstamps STUCK at a few hundred dollars a months….Eventually your entire weekly food stamp hand out will barely cover the cost of one bag of rice….the shackles Obama putting around your wrist may feel weightless today, but over time his debt slavery will pinch your wrists to the bone.

    Simply not true. We were just downgraded. Have you looked at 10 year T-Bills? People are literally paying us to hold their money. That’s right, they are losing money. The market sees the U.S. as a completely safe place to lend money. What special insight does Moody’s have? Investors know what is going on in the U.S. and they are perfectly willing to lend us money and ridiculously low rates. If the U.S. was truly in bad economic shape, investors would demand higher rates. It’s not really possible for rates to go any lower.

    Who are you going to believe, the Market or Moody’s?

  • Dave in NYC

    It is misleading to say that Moody’s is considering downgrading the U.S. “again”. Moody’s never downgraded the U.S. — it was S&P who did so last year. The U.S. still has it’s Moody’s Aaa rating.

    I agree with Monkey Wrench as to “who cares?” I care about the size of the debt but not about the credit ratings. Immediately after the U.S. downgrade last year, there was a flight to quality in the capital markets, and guess what people bought? U.S. government bonds!
