France is a country where the money falls apart and you can't tear the toilet paper.

Au Revoir, Sarkozy!

And Sarkozy were belittling England for not being part of the EU. Steer clear of that mess and hang on to your sovereignty. Let no nation determine your nation's future.

Beware America!

S&P assures us that these ratings are more credible than their previous ratings of MBSs and CDOs.

Meanwhile, France is outraged that the financial industry dares comment about its credit-worthiness, and proclaims that ratings agencies won't determine French policies. Somehow it doesn't see a contradiction between claiming this and continuing to finance its budget by borrowing in the international markets.

I wouldn't get too cocky about poor France, Obama has us headed straight for the same shoals. We will be just as pitiful soon, because Obama won't rein in his spending. He had better hope our credit rating is not lowered again before the election.
