John Kerry's claim on Sunday's "Meet the Press" that Standard and Poor's U.S. credit rating decision Friday is a "Tea Party Downgrade" is already catching on in liberal circles.
The far-left MoveOn.org has taken it on as a rallying cry:
This “tea party downgrade” is a shameful blow to our nation’s honor and risks throwing us right back into recession. Worst of all? It was completely avoidable.
But when given the choice between extremist posturing and responsible leadership, tea party Republicans chose wrong. And now, amazingly, they’re trying to pin the blame on Democrats.1
We have to set the record straight. Can you share this image with your friends and family today?
The folks at the perilously liberal website Daily Kos have also gotten into the act.
If you wondered how the Obama-loving media were going to deflect blame for this downgrade away from the President and his Party, now you know.
