Santelli: If not for the tea party, we’d be rated BBB

President Pull-ups and his party play the blame game as the world watches (and laughs).

Obama and the democrats are scrambling, making ridiculous and silly accusations and now investigating S&P and blaming the tea party for the downgrade.

Who knew the tea party was so powerful.  Goodness, they are strong enough to take hostages and overpower a president and a senate and the liberal media?  That’s a David and Goliah situation if I ever heard one. 

It is absolutely the funniest thing I have heard.  I laughed out loud at John Kerry and Axelrod calling the downgrade a tea party downgrade.  I did not know they were comedians.  There is one and only one plank in the tea party platform – Stop the Spending.  So tell me another joke.

Of course, it is outrageous, isn’t it, that the tea party came up from nothing a couple years ago and actually elected some congressmen to represent their views in Washington?  Imagine that. 

But the mantra of the tea party was:  “We will remember in November.” 

Americans should be thanking the tea party.  I think they are thanking the tea party.  The ship was going down when they got to Washington.  At least they are trying to plug the hole.

But, wait, I’m confused.  The DNC said Obama and the demos won and came out on top on the debt deal.

And as Santelli says:  If not for the tea party, the rating downgrade would have been worse.  

Parting quote from Santelli:  “We are in trouble and our ‘leaders’ are on vacation until September 7th. It’s reprehensible.”

  1. Maybe it’s a good thing they are on vacation until after Labor Day. The less time they spend in D.C. the less damage they cause to the country and the economy.
