(CNSNews.com) – More than 48 hours after Standard & Poors lowered its triple-A credit rating for the United States, President Obama has not said a thing about it, although one of his advisers is blaming tea party conservatives.
The president’s Saturday morning radio address had been taped in advance of his weekend trip to Camp David, but if he chooses to, the president can always do a live broadcast to reflect changing events. S&P’s downgrade was announced Friday after the stock markets closed.
According to the White House Web site, Obama has “no public schedule” on Monday, but Politico reported he will attend two fund-raisers in Washington Monday evening.
The president’s adviser David Axelrod told CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday that the S&P’s downgrade from AAA to AA+ for the first time in U.S. history was a “tea party downgrade.”
UPDATE: Obama to speak on S&P downgrade and Afghanistan helicopter crash at 1:30 pm, 8/8/2011…..get ready for the standard Obama Blame Game.
UPDATE: And the winner of the Obama Blame Game for the downgrade is………..Obama?…nope! The Democrats?…nope!
The winner is…..”Political Gridlock” (huh?). “Political Gridlock” is Obama-speak for Republicans and the terrorist Tea Party.
