The only conclusions I can reach are you are anti-Semitic and/or threatening Americans that don't agree with your political views.

S&P made it quite clear that the downgrade occurred for multiple reasons including spending, but also low revenue and the apparent inability of the US federal government to (my words) act like adults.

Much of the backlash to his presidency from day 1 is clearly due to the fact that certain people in the USA cannot tolerate a person who is clearly much smarter than they are , and not white to boot sitting in a position to make laws they have to live by . Clinton was a smart-aleck know-it-all lib , but that was a bitter pill that could be swallowed because he was , after all , whitey-white Billy Bob from Texarkana ? But the Kenyan Muslim Communist is another story altogether , right Tea Baggers ? Mr. Obama is an intelligent well schooled politician .

I said nothing about any specific degree...did I? To get to law school or med school or any other school of higher degrees one must get past that pesky 4-year basic college requirements. Here is an interesting tidbit: In 1895 when Albert Einstein appeared for the University Entrance Exam he could only manage to pass in the math and science sections and failed in the rest of the subjects. Personally, I consider Mr. Einstein to have been one of the most intelligent men ever born despite his apparent inability to pass tests. Liberal, you might want to not be so ‘focused’.

Both parties in Congress and the President are to blame for our downgrade. Grandstanding and posturing while pointing fingers at each other made the US look foolish and unstable. The American voter needs to face reality. Our elected leaders are behaving very badly. It was the Democrat Downgrade!!!————-Sorry but I disagree.

This is from Answers.com , but you can easily Goggle more if needed -----------At Harvard Law School, Obama graduated Magna Cum Laude, which, according to the Havard Law School website, is awarded to the top 10% of Harvard Law School students.------------------Now what'd the other guy do grade-wise whilst in college at that most esteemed bastion of higher learning Tejas A&M ? Oh , it doesn't really matter , that's right.... Also, there are no easy classes ( like basket weaving) to get a Juris Doctorate from Harvard Law School.

It's a prerequisite for the job , at least for serious objective voters who are looking out for the interests of the United States of America before their own petty wants and desires. Simpletons like Perry should probably be excluded from the process altogether , the guy is obviously pretty dense and barely scraped through an average college taking mediocre classes . This is who you want running the agenda for the USA , some dimwit cowboy who is , at best , nothing special ? Bush redux again ? Why ?
