Seriously, Warren Buffet is right. After all the political bickering and deadlock that we’ve had in the last month, S and P should give us a quadruple A status just for tolerating our politicians idiocy. PIIGS downgrades make more sense since there is actually a chance that their people will eventually get pissed enough to take some action against their governments’ mismanagement of debt. But here in the US, there’s not much we aren’t willing to let the government handle. I mean if it came down to austerity measures, we would probably just suck it up, and do whatever. Any other country would take to the streets.
