No, Moody's knows more than Jack Lew, who was forgiven several thousand dollars of mortgage loans by NYU.
Moody's calls for the end of the debt ceiling law. May as well, they can't limit themselves.
that the debt ceiling BS fight is a waste of time and money

And there is no comparison between NYU and the federal government.

Hey! We agree on something.:-) It is a waste of time. They will never live up to the limits they set for themselves, so why bother with a debt ceiling law.

The point of mentioning the NYU loans is Moody's would be more astute with economic affairs being Jack Lew couldn't handle his own affairs. It isn't NYU vs. the government.

Who is this pesky little kid that keeps pulling on my pant leg? If it is important to you, with everything else that's going on, that dropping a barricade makes it a projectile, so be it. There, your priority is solved.

Who was the genius that though bringing the Rebel Flag a symbol of racism in America and the flag of the traitors who made up the Confederate States of America to the White House now occupied by the First African American President?

The Republican politicians who supported that demonstration also supported their Anti Americanism, and as would have it today they are back pedaling and claiming the guy who brought the Flag was really a liberal planed among the peaceful demonstrators.......

That was as asinine as voting to shut down the Government. See why Republicans can't be left alone at home......

It would be hilarious if it wasn't seditious. ReTHUGliBaggers duping vets into civil disobedience over a shutdown THEY THEMSELVES BROUGHT ABOUT.
I can't believe America's vets are letting themselves be pissed on by lying, Teabagger filth. They dishonor themselves and their service with this crapola.
Never forget that ReTHUGlicans are to blame for the shutdown. NEVER.
Wait until those Veteran Disability and Social Security Checks don't arrive the first of Nov.

Democrats are blocking vets from memorials to politicize their position. Republicans stand with vets for the same reason. The vets will remember who stood with them versus against them.
It's going to take more than visiting Memorials for the Vets to know who was WITH them. Were the GOP WITH them when the wounded soldiers came home to rat infest hospitals when Bush ran things. Were they WITH them when they pulled that stop gap bullshit on them and made them do 5 tours? I doubt it. So........showing up at a Memorial to show fake concern is not going to get the vets in their pocket. It's actually caring for them when they come home and doing what's right by them which is what Obama is doing. Crocodile tears will change nothing.

It took along time for that to change. It's was one of the first thing Obama took care of. The stop gap thing to keep people even though their enlistments were up has and will cause the so much damage no can comprehend. They wanted to fight a war and they didn't have enough troops to do it. You think it's bad with the Vietnam vets that are homeless and lost souls because their country didn't care for them. The Iraq/Afghanistan veterans are going to suffer even more. Bush and Co. took all those innocent wet behind the ears boys and girls and put them in harm's way for FIVE FRIGGEN tours. Shame on them and Shame on you for supporting these immature tantrum throwing Children who call themselves the Tea Party.
