U.S. credit rating cut, again.

We cannot print our way out of this mess. We need to produce our way out of it. A good first step would be to approve the Keystone pipeline, immediately. That would send the signal that America is back in business.

Johnny's at it again.

In what alternate world does Keystone relate to debt?

I agree with part of his odd rant, if by "produce" he means "jobs". "We need to produce our way out of it" Yes, we need to BUILD and EMPLOY our way out of this Bush Great Recession.

Obama has created, despite obstruction from the GOP, 4.5 million private sector jobs in the last 28 months. America IS open for business, so let's turn on the faucet of job creation and with many more new jobs, revenues go up to lower the deficit.

"send the signal that America is back in business"

A completely nonsensical talking point.

When Bush/Cheney left office, the Dow was at 8,000. Today it closed at 13,580. Obama is GREAT for business. Now let's get the republicans out of the way and let him work on jobs and the deficit.

America is in business. Even if some with blinders on can't see it.

The Big Dog said it: the republican story is 'republicans destroyed the economy, now they tell us Obama didn't fix it fast enough, so they think we should let republicans back in office again"
