"For crying out loud, France has a higher credit rating than we do. France! They produce cheese and perfume, for crying out loud."
RUSH: One of the first politicians reacting to the S&P decision to downgrade America's credit rating – for the first time in history – was Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. In a statement, Dingy Harry claimed the S&P reaffirmed Democrats' for higher taxes.
RUSH: There's no more time for apathy. There no more time for letting somebody else do it. The administration's terrorized by the Tea Party, the Democrat Party is terrorized by the Tea Party, the media is terrorized by the Tea Party -- and, by the way, you're not just an activist; you are a terrorist now!
RUSH: That just happened to come to me, because I am so focused on the nature under which the Republicans had conducted their debt deal negotiations, totally under the guise within the context of fear.
RUSH: If you think that the Democrat Party is not thinking Hillary Clinton as a primary opponent to Obama, you are not thinking. Folks, if Hillary Clinton were president right now and the same circumstances existed, they would be thinking about Obama primary-ing her. Not "marrying," primary-ing. I am here to tell you that deep in the bowels (and that's what they are) of the Democrat Party, they're thinking this.
RUSH: We just had our credit rating downgraded, we're on the verge of default, we are in financial hell. If he really cared, is my point, there is a solution to this. There is a policy change of course that will work. If he really cared, he would instruct -- he would demand that -- his party in the Senate vote to pass the bipartisan in the House, bipartisan Cut, Cap, and Balance. The Standard & Poor specifically admitted that would have prevented a downgrade!

RUSH: Somebody who announces an address to the nation at one o'clock and shows up 53 minutes later has no regard for the public. Somebody who announces remarks at one o'clock and shows up at two o'clock has flipped the public the bird.
RUSH: Guess what, Mr. President? The S&P said Cut, Cap, and Balance, if you'd have passed that (and it was bipartisan) it would have prevented the downgrade. But Obama and his allies wouldn't even discuss it, let alone allow it to come up for a vote. Why? They are not interested in what works. That is so obvious.
RUSH: What are the Democrats doing? Blaming the referees! Blaming Standard & Poor's! That always changes the outcome, doesn't it? Blame the refs. You people in Seattle? The Seahawks, Super Bowl, 2005, Steelers? Blame the refs. Last time I looked the Steelers still won the game. So go ahead and blame Standard & Poor's all you want, Democrats. Now they're blaming the military! Barney Frank's blaming the military.
