America is a poor credit risk.

Today, the credit rating agency, S&P, lowered the U.S. credit outlook to “negative”.  The agency identifies the reason as uncertainty as to whether meaningful debt reduction will ever occur.  Not surprisingly, the Obama administration is downplaying the announcement, saying that it “underestimates the ability of America’s leaders to come together to address the difficult fiscal challenges facing the nation.”  If it were not so serious, this statement would almost be funny.  When was the last time your government inspired confidence?  When was the last time you felt our nation was in capable hands?  If you can’t remember, it is time for fundamental change.
