Michele “Bachmann Crazy Overdrive” took to the press today and instead of her usual spin this time Bachmann blatantly lied to the American people blaming Barack Obama for Standard & Poor’s downgrading of America’s credit rating from AAA to AA.
Bachmann said that the downgrade reflects the president’s “failed economic policies.”and “This president has destroyed the credit rating of the United States,” Bachmann said.
The thing is that Standards & Poors made it crrystal clear in black & white that it was the Republicans fault.
“We have changed our assumption on this because the majority of Republicans in Congress continue to resist any measure that would raise revenues, a position we believe Congress reinforced by passing the act.”
It’s right there on Page 4 of the official Standard & Poor’s “Research Update” — the actual report on what they did and why — published on August 5th as the explanation for why they believe Congress — and even the Gang of Twelve — will be unable to actually deal with the US debt crisis.
So now to her resume that includes “stark raving mad Jesus freak” we can add ” evil lying bitch” as well
