This Time I do Want to Get Off on a Rant...

We saw this coming. Both rating agencies have been warning us for months this downgrade was coming. So what did the idiots on the left do? Nothing. Not one damn thing.

Well, that’s not quite true. They, their willing accomplices in the MSM, and dupes and useful idiots within the Republican party, (you listening tan-boy John Boehner? Mitch McConnell? Yeah you, I called you idiots, wanna make something of it?) railed about how we couldn’t “fix the deficit on the backs of the most vulnerable among us.” You demonized the only adults in Washington D.C. who were among the Tea Party. You made certain we would end up here.

How hard could it have actually been? The ratings agencies TOLD you what you needed to do — rein in spending  — it wasn’t bloody rocket science. Hell anyone who ever balanced a CHECKBOOK could have told you what you needed to do.

But you played politics. You acted like Scarlet O’Hara and just refused to think about anything unpleasant. Well, Barry, I hate to tell you this, but there’s no kindness of strangers here to rely on. This is cold, hard reality. Until YOU, sir, the U.S. credit rating has always been stable or improving. YOU, sir, own this. You and your lickspittle accomplices in Congress and the media have brought us to this point.

Do not think the American people will forget. Do not think we will forgive. This country is angry sir, and nation after nation has discovered there is nothing on Earth more dangerous than a pissed-off American.

This country is on the edge of something very ugly, sir, and you personally have brought us here.

My fellow Americans, this election is our last and only chance to turn this thing around. To call the politicians on both sides of the aisle who have brought us to this point “cretins” is to insult cretins. Get behind the adults in the room. The Tea Partiers. The ones who say “however much it hurts, we have to rein in spending, we must rip off the bandaid or there will be no healing.” Get behind those people.

Before the whole mess comes down in blood and fire.
