I was thinking a lot this weekend about the Standard and Poor downgrade of America's economy. These were the same people who continually rated American investment banks and derivative markets as AAA. Right up until the financial meltdown. Paul Krugman put all of this into focus and I urge you to read his New York Times Column today.
I think he is right in his assertion that this country is being controlled by extremists right now. If the American public rewards the GOP in anyway at the polls next year then we are surely lost. We will have lost our national rationality.
