On Standard & Poor’s downgrade of America’s bond rating.
So Democrats, let me ask you, are you happy now? You finally got your hope and change. I said that I hoped he would fail. And this is exactly what I meant. But, from your perspective, from Obama’s perspective, he hasn’t failed. He’s succeeded beyond his wildest dreams. And now look where we are. How many of you saw the movie, Planet of the Apes? … Remember how that movie ended? Colonel George Taylor on a beach, Statue of Liberty halfway buried, New York City doesn’t exist. Charlton Heston as Colonel George Taylor – “You did it. You finally did it. Damn you all to hell, you did it!” That’s how I feel today. That’s how I felt all weekend long. Damn it to hell, they did it. Obamageddon. That’s what we have witnesses since Friday. Obamageddon. Barackalypse Now. The only silver lining I can find is that as far as 2012 goes, Obama’s a debt man walking. Anybody want to tell me he’s not landslidable now?
On the never-ending saga of the debt crisis.
This deal was supposed to be the salvation. This deal was supposed to buy us time. This deal was supposed to ward off Satan. And his sandwich. This deal was supposed to buy us some time, at least for Christmas. This deal was supposed to bring us a little peace. This deal was supposed to bring us a little compromise. And now here it is. When did Obama sign this stupid thing? Yesterday? Last night? So in one day – we have a story from Reuters – “Economists say the economy could face a further drag from the budget deficit cutting plan approved by Congress this week.” Wait a minute! I thought this bill was the salvation. Now they tell us, one day later, that the economy could face a further drag because we did this deal. And why? Because it’s a deficit cutter. And it’s not a deficit cutter.
