Rush Limbaugh's new theory about Obama's debt ceiling deadline of August 2nd is because of his birthday and Ramadan. Isn't he such a classy fellow? Moody's want to go to the party too so they need to lower our credit rating if we miss it.

Rush Limbaugh's new theory about Obama's debt ceiling deadline of August 2nd is because of his birthday and Ramadan. Isn't he such a classy fellow?

Moody's want to go to the party too so they need to lower our credit rating if we miss it.

Also, Fitch joins in the Ramadan celebration:

Fitch warns US could lose AAA rating by Aug. 4 without deal

The Fitch credit rating agency has warned that it could downgrade the nation's credit rating from AAA to B-plus as soon as Aug. 4 if a deal is not struck to raise the debt limit.

Such a move would significantly drive up interest rates for the government, which in turn would boost borrowing costs for all sorts of loans that use Treasury debt as a benchmark for their own rates.

Wonder if they're secret Muslims or something.
