really?? I guess the state approved drive by media missed that. But to be fair I don't ever remember a report on Barrys church attendance - anywhere like occasionally was done with past administrations. But he's just soooo cool - maybe he gets the pstors to come to the palace - oops I mean the White House

Drugs...Really, this is plain silliness.. just do a search or go on any reputable fact check site. You will see that Obama is a Christian..protestant. It was noted that he and his family have attended several churches, but favor an Episcopal church near the White House.

drugs, 'I have told you where the evidence is'

what evidence? that he goes to church at a christian house of worship? your 'fact' is something you found on Newsmax and you want people to believe that over what we see and read in actual news sources?

yo Beavis, we have been down this road before. I have told you where the evidence is, but you do not want to believe, or even see it. I see you indoctrination is complete, you will follow him regardless like the rest of the lemmings and sheeple.

drugsrus, President Obama is not a 'muslim' nor is he 'socialist'.

And even if he were a 'socialist', martian, Green Party,*****Party, whatever: he was duly elected by the people. He didn't usurp power, he didn't cheat, inherit a throne, nor was he elected by a handful of elites. He was elected by the will of the people.

So screw off for thinking that Democracy doesn't exist if only to not elect the guy YOU chose.

laker- we don't know that to be 100% accurate, and you are right in that Mitt probably wasn't THE guy. BUT he was a much better choice than the Muslim Socialist rock star that dazzles the youthful voters.

You're suggesting that Romney was the right guy...I disagree. His economics would have increased the deficit more than Obama. Especially bizarre was Mitt's proposal on increasing military spending, way more costly than the affordable health care act.

You are welcome, I just cant understand how borrowing past your means and having mountains of debt that your income cannot sustain or begin to pay increases your chances of not being downgraded. If you believe that this is the best we can do... you voted for the right guy. I believe that we can do better, much better than this ridiculous direction we are on.

rschweizer -what part of we are already $16 TRILLION in debt don't you understand ????? It's a little like having a ton of credit cards all near the limit, but you are dutifully making the minimun payment, so they will give you more because your credit rating is just wonderful (for now). As usual you keep missing the point.

And your pal pres Barry could and should be tried for treason for failing "to protect and defend the Constitution of the United states of America" the oath he took more than once (as a Senator and as Pres.). He is about to issue an Executive Order that will nullify the 2nd Amendment.

As I said before the founders would be shooting by now

How refreshing to see some bona fide citations for the facts being quoted by some of the commenters, which assists those of us who actually wish to research the data. Many thanks to those who are taking that important step.

rschweizer, no moderation has some facts, just confused a bit, no where near your impossibilities.

There is a huge differences between budget cuts and projected deficit savings. In a budget cut you actually cut what you spend, in the deficit savings you simply cut the top off increased spending. We absolutely need budget cuts. Now Obamacare is spending increases as well as a mega tax increase. Obama and democrats SPEND.

It should further be noted that 'excellent' (AA+ rating) is still a tough feat to accomplish and a very, very good rating to have. And that was only one of the three agencies that reported that rating.

The other two agencies? They kept their ratings at a perfect AAA, basically like giving 5 out of 5 stars.

Someone get you the penicillin!

drugsrus, actually there ARE private credit-rating agencies that monitor and grade issue the official creditworthiness of a government. And believe it or not, the US's still remains solid.

On 8/5/2011, the rating did drop, from outstanding' to 'excellent'.

You need to actually do your research.

Are you breaking in in hives from all these allergic reactions to facts today? Or are your allergies the throat-shrinking kind?

drugsrus, treason is usually an applicable term for aiding an enemy by declaration of Congress. Proving treason by means of aiding a country with which we are not war with will be very, very difficult. We'll let you argue that case though.

A bunch of years ago, I went into the bank to see a loan officer. I told him that the wife and I just took a vote and decided to raise our debt ceiling. I'd need about $5,000 and I could pick up the check tomorrow. I was politely informed that I must fill out an application, they must check my credit rating, and all the usual stuff. I reminded him that the gov't just decided to raise its debt limit and -bingo- just like that it was done. Who checked their credit????

right away I'm a smart a**

rschweizer- listen (or in this case -read) up here Skippy, there was a time in this great country when aid (other than immediate medical care of a prisoner) to any enemy was considered treason. Punishable by death.

moderation is obviously on your liberal side and more than likely a supporter of your pal Barry. Spending has to stop, the balance in the checking acct. is less than zero and now this Bozo is talking about raising the debt ceiling so we can borrow more.

*$51.6 billion*

I agree in part. Most relief comes from the state department in which has a budget last year of $51.6. Not a large percentage is spent toward these countries but in our discussion every nickel counts. Hearts and minds doesn't work with as people who won't fight for themselves and surrender to tyranny. Just saying we could save a couple billion from Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. Look at the budget yourself ... you can google it ... i'm not writing a paper here.
