    Bloomberg thinks. They are rabid ideological zealots, who only care about defeating Obama in 2012 - the same type of zealots who went after Clinton in the 1990's.  They are willing to bring down the entire US and world economy to try and get what they want. I'm hoping that voters will be awakened from their slumber by this cynical ploy, and remember on voting day who crashed the economy. And I don't feel a bit sorry for Republican corporatists who made a deal with these right wing ideological devils to win elections - they are now reaping what they have sown.

    •  You forgot "low information" rabid (10+ / 0-)

      ideological zealots.  Their only ideology is Obama=bad.

      Corporations are driven by the bottom line, not by concerns for health, safety or the environment. This is why we need government regulations.

        "Some rude beast slouching toward Bethlehem." W.B. Yeats

        All the literary references fit. They are waiting to gut the country's finances and divide up the entrails. Then let the orgy of destruction begin. Don't think they are not thinking exactly this. Pat Buchanan is the typical Barbarian of Western Civilization, and he speaks for millions of Know Nothings. We either defeat them now, or we will lose forever. That is always the way it is with the Rude Beast.

      their noses at Bloomberg

      They will ignore news from any and all financial experts

      That is just how the crazy roll

      I'm not stressing, worse case scenario obama will go 14th amendment.  He doesn't want to, he will wait till the last day, repubs will scream holly hell BUT in the end we will NEVER default.  We might get our credit rating downgraded due to going to the last moment all 14th amendment which is bad but far better than total default

    •  I agree with you. (0+ / 0-)

      I don't think any of this default talk bothers the majority of these people in the least.  They figure they can just blame the current administration for any problems that result, as if that even matters if shit really hits the fan.  Voters already forgot, or never realized, who really fleeced them in the previous decade.  Hell, the previous three decades.  There is no reason to believe they'll hold these lunatics responsible.  All you hear is "all politicians are liers" or "crooks" or "etc, etc, etc".  This has been part of the plot to begin with.  Kill the credibility of the system, and then kill the system and return to the 19th century.  The first default in the history of the country, all because these zealots are trying to make the president take a fall.  This is not even a budget discussion, but  discussion about allowing the country to pay its bills.  Unbelievable.  I like another posters' idea (somewhere)...Obama should choose the debts to be paid, leaving out the states that supported these asshats.
