Let’s summarize. We lost our AAA rating after Congress cut a budget deal cutting a whopping $7 billion from this year’s budget, just a teensy bit short of the $4 trillion recommended by ratings agencies. The stock market tanked — possibly because of the lame budget, more probably because of the Eurozone crisis (they’re in even worse shape than we are). Democrats blamed Tea Partiers for being radical and outrageous in their demands the debt be cut. Tea Partiers blinked in confusion, wondering what cuts they were talking about. Obama’s approval rating hit a new low. Consumer confidence plummeted, taking the stock market for another rocky ride.
London burned and their fearless “conservative” leader, Cameron, blamed Facebook (Europe really is pathetic).
Another appeals court ruled the individual mandate in Obamacare unconstitutional, which really doesn’t mean much because we all know it’s going to the Supreme Court, and why the devil it’s been taking so long is beyond me.
