Between the Lines: The Standard and Poor’s Rating Downgrade and What It All Means –Source: eurweb

Debt Rating – A Triple Plus vs A Double Plus Don’t Sound That Bad To Me

A Triple Plus rating vs A Double Plus do not sound that bad to me however I don’t know what the significance is as it relates to the debt rating other than they saying they have a problem with the US paying their debt.

But in a sense to me just looking at it as a grading average I just can’t see what the fuss. Well I think I get it that it is all about President Barack Obama being a black man whom just happens to be all of our President whether we like it or not.

It appears some folks will sink the damn boat and don’t care who survives. But I believe all that they continue to do to attempt to discredit our President that they are showing just how ignant they are.

I hope to hear more about the significant difference in the rating. If someone has some information on it please share it with me.

I believe folks are misleading people and trying to scare the hell out of them when it ain’t a big deal in my opinion.
