Perfect John Stewart.
yes i’m sure obama is directly responsible for the country’s credit rating since he’s been president for less than 4 years and all.
My favorite part of this (well, second favorite after “He married Michelle Obama, I will divorce Michelle Obama!”) was Mitt implying that *Obama* is responsible for the credit downgrade and not the obstructionist Republican-majority congress. Because here’s what S&P actually said when they downgraded us:
“The political brinksmanship of recent months highlights what we see as America’s governance and policymaking becoming less stable, less effective, and less predictable than what we previously believed. The statutory debt ceiling and the threat of default have become political bargaining chips in the debate over fiscal policy. …the plan envisions only minor policy changes on Medicare and little change in other entitlements, the containment of which we and most other independent observers regard as key to long-term fiscal sustainability.”
So you know. Republicans in Congress.
