Obama got down on his knees, bowed and begged China to buy the Debt.

If they didn't buy, the music would have stopped and Obama would have been exposed in his big red clown shoes. No. China protected itself by Buying Obama.

"U.S. lets China bypass Wall Street for Treasury orders"

By Emily Flitter

NEW YORK | Mon May 21, 2012 3:35pm EDT

(Reuters)- China can now bypass Wall Street when buying U.S. government debt and go straight to the U.S. Treasury, in what is the Treasury's first-ever direct relationship with a foreign government, according to documents viewed by Reuters.

The relationship means the People's Bank of China buys U.S. debt using a different method than any other central bank in the world.

The other central banks, including the Bank of Japan, which has a large appetite for Treasuries, place orders for U.S. debt with major Wall Street banks designated by the government as primary dealers. Those dealers then bid on their behalf at Treasury auctions.

China, which holds $1.17 trillion in U.S. Treasuries, still buys some Treasuries through primary dealers, but since June 2011, that route hasn't been necessary.

The documents viewed by Reuters show the U.S. Treasury Department has given the People's Bank of China a direct computer link to its auction system, which the Chinese first used to buy two-year notes in late June 2011.

They knew they had a puppet president in pocket the minute he cowtowed to their leaders. They also know America's Trade Imbalance favors China Big Time.


They wanted to make sure Obama had stimulus money to start Solar companies that would take Obama's Money THEN MOVE TO CHINA!

U.S. facing credit rating ‘downgrade’ if Obama reelected

05/19/2012

Last August, the United States lost its AAA credit rating from Standard & Poor’s and was downgraded to AA+, after Congress broke a stalemate and agreed to spending cuts that would reduce the debt by over $2 trillion. Krauthammer said the U.S. could suffer another downgrade if President Barack Obama is reelected.

“No, but I think if we reelect Obama, we will have a downgrade, probably a default — something like a default, not a real default,” Krauthammer said.“But we’re going to head that way, obviously, because you can’t sustain trillion dollar deficits as far as the eye can see.”

The Washington Post columnist went on to explain why the debt ceiling fight won’t be the cause of any such downgrade.

“So a downgrade will come, but not over a debt ceiling thing, for the following reason: If Romney wins, this is a moot issue,” he said.“There’s not going to be a showdown. If Obama wins, it’s also a moot issue, because we’re going to be dealing with 18 other issues — the expiration of the Bush tax cuts, of the payroll tax, there’s going to be a tsunami of taxes and an increase in spending, as well. So, that’s going to be a minor issue. I think the reason [House Speaker John] Boehner raised it is to make it an issue. It’s a rhetorical issue. It’s only going to happen after Election Day, so it’s not going to have any effect on the real world.”

Obama saved neither the auto nor financial industries, just made them subservient to him (witness the Volt)
And that economic death spiral?
Accelerated with Obama's policies!
Unemployment went from 7.8% to over 10.3%
The Labor participation rate went from 66% to 59%
GDP growth went from 3% to 1.9%
All due to Dem policies!
And this is "progress"?
GEE, if that is the definition of success, I'd hate to see what failure looks like!

. Let me know when the auto industry was saved. GM is stopping production of the Volt and the stock is heading toward record lows. Bush started the bailout of the financial industry which Obama objected to. Obama does get credit for Solyendra and Fast and Furious. Proud achievements!

Sure... God forbid it should be about debt, deficit, jobs, economy, defense, entitlement reform etc., because that would be really, really bad for the administration.
