Republicans have blamed President Barack Obama for the first-ever downgrade of the government's credit rating.

But Geithner said Congress owns the credit rating because the Constitution gives Congress the power to tax and spend.

Gee if Geithner knows the Constitution gives the CONGRESS the power to tax and spend, what was all the talk over the past couple weeks about Obama by-passing the Congress and raising the Debt Ceiling himself? :?

Come to think of it if the Congress is given the power to tax and spend by the Constitution then why is Bush taking the blame for the spending the DEMOCRAT CONGRESS AND SENATE did in the final two years of his Presidency of which Obama was a part of? :?

Seems rules change when it looks like the Dems are not going to get what they want or don't want to take the blame for what they have done. :wink:

Oh and I'm glad Geithner did not forecast the interest rate the government is going to have after the downgrade he said wasn't going to happen as I would hate to see Obama's oh so smart man be WRONG AGAIN. :roll:

If anyone else had screwed up as bad as Geithner they would be fired but Obama is keeping him on. :roll: So can any of you Obamabots explain What kind of freaking mess he would have to make to be tossed out on his tax cheating butt?
