Thank you, Tea Party - UPDATE - Thank you, Bush

This video is very good. It was produced just before and released more or less at the same time as Standard & Poor downgraded the US credit rating from AAA to AA+.

S & P said:

The political brinksmanship of recent months highlights what we see as America’s governance and policymaking becoming less stable, less effective, and less predictable than what we previously believed. The statutory debt ceiling and the threat of default have become political bargaining chips in the debate over fiscal policy.

Of course, the teabaggers won't take responsibility for it, and perhaps we should expect to see Sarah Palin on Fox News blaming Obama...

UPDATE (via Andrew Sullivan). It all started with Bush...
