    Obama can say claim we have a AAA credit rating if he wants to. The quote "It's like putting lipstick on a pig" apples. It won't change the facts but may make him feel better .... short term.

    Step down Romney.

    Remember, "The Romney/ Goldman Sachs Chronicles - Modern Day Robber Baron's g[al]ore."

    Goldman Sachs and Mitt Romney's Robber Baron antics would only increase by a quantum leap - if Mitt should STEAL the election (his companies steal everything else). You can see with your own eyes, the black and white Dept of Justice ILLEGAL efforts to assist Organized Criminal empires of Traub, MNAT, Goldman Sachs and BAIN to succeed. The Chief Justice said, despite confessions to 34 false affidavits - that there was NO Perjury in eToys (see page 52 of the OPINION.) These Fraudsters are assaulting our Constitution SEDITIOUSLY - and must be halted at all costs. G-d help us all - if Romney is able to steal this election. He certainly has enough money to make it happen. Traub has relationship with Bain, Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo, JP Morgan and Cerberus (who owns Hilco) and Hilco, Gordon brothers bought Polaroid (illegally) now Traub owns Polaroid (being with GB) that was bought by stolen funds through his partner Petters. Traub also has a relationship with Cerberus (that received all the bailouts GMAC, Chrysler) and Cerberus, with Goldman Sachs and Bain manipulated the issues of Hilco/Polaroid, Fingerhut.

    'Obama inherited a triple A credit rating from Bush!' - Mountanman | 12:25 p.m. Aug. 8, 2011

    And Bush 'only' doubled the national debt and the national unemployment rate! :)

    Did you REALLY think our credit rating would last?

    George W. Bush raised the debt ceiling...7 times.


    No. We've had this comming for awhile.

    I would rather have a "poor" honest and never lies President like Jesus Christ in Washington, then Romney any time. I cannot wait until Mitt (in the Pitts) Romney gets the GOP nomination - before I address the true nature of this nefarious beast. Because this series of reports will contain evidence of off shore tax havens, bankruptcy fraud, bankruptcy collusion and federal system of justice corruption that benefits Romney's entities. That also ties hand in hand with Goldman Sachs IPO fraud, bankruptcy collusion, bankruptcy fraud and federal system of justice collusion. Such a series therefore needs to name them both. All anyone need investigate is Bain and several other "exclusive" holdings of Romney to see he speaks with forked tongue. Such as Stage Stores, a southern Texas Bankruptcy case (#00-35078) - Mitt owns the bulk of the entity that held 500 stores. We will begin his chronicle of nefarious benefiting at that case and his cohort Paul Traub. Goldman Sachs and Bain's civil and criminal violations are massive. Including crimes against public entities, organized criminal endeavors "profuse" and issues of violations of the law to protect Romney's various entities and Goldman Sachs from investigation and prosecution.

    That's my views.

    Obama inherited a triple A credit rating from Bush! Took him less than one term to destroy it!

    Now, let's see how Mitt's party, the Republican party, handles the issue of debt and goverment default.

    Oh, yeah.

    They make it worse.

    The chosen one, Koch Brothers and Grover Norquist puppet poster boy, Mitt Romney says the nation's credit problem arose because President Barack H. Obama has failed to show leadership on the economy. But in Mitt Romney's new book, "No Apology: The Case for American Greatness," is a whole Chapter on his 2 icons, none other then the, ("loyal to the Romnay cause"), Koch Brothers and Grover Norquist, in their "Field Of (corn and sugar cane) Dreams" called "Ethanol Subsidies" entitlements the GOP can't seem to get away from, that Obama is against, for a good reason to. Gingrich still supports these subsidies, which he has since first supporting legislation that President Ronald Reagan signed into law, Mitt Romney supports ethanol subsidies. His campaign declined to comment on whether he stands by that position?. Well, there's no question that the recession was caused by Republican failed policies & philosophies & the GOP tried to make the recession deeper and more painful for more Americans by virtue of sabotaging the president's stimulus plans. GOP has done everything they can to sabotage the recovery to make recovery slower and more painful for millions of Americans because the Republican Party wants the president to fail.

    'Mitt Romney blames Obama for credit downgrade' - Title

    And Romney came out against the budget deal...
    after it passed.

    Let's look at other examples of Romney 'creating' jobs.

    Mitt Romney on Job creation:
    From 2003-2007 job growth....0.9%.
    In rankings with the rest of the country...MA was 47th in Job creation when Mitt Romney was there.
    - Think Progress Travis Waldron 06/02/11

    0.9%. Why, that's ALMOST 1%. For, one state.

    But Mitt didn't even run for a second term in MA.

    How about local, US job creation?

    *'Let Detroit Go Bankrupt' - By Mitt Romney - NY Times - 11/18/08

    Nope. Mitt Romney has gone on record AGAINST the Bush era auto bail outs and against local, US jobs that would create more 'made in America' jobs.

    What has Mitt Romney DONE in response to the financial meltdown?
