Anyone who thinks better TV commercials in prime time is how we are going to win the next election wasn't paying attention in the last election and probably thinks better lawn signs and bumper stickers will help too. Superior voter mobilization and voter engagement through social media is what lifted Obama in the last election. Not TV ads which people don't watch anymore since the proliferation of the remote control in the 1980s. The Republican party better get into the new millennium if they hope to win elections anytime soon.

"More broadly, the downgrade reflects our view that the effectiveness, stability, and predictability of American policymaking and political institutions have weakened at a time of ongoing fiscal and economic challenges to a degree more than we envisioned when we assigned a negative outlook to the rating on April 18, 2011" Sounds like a lack of leadership in the face of bitter partisanship.

You cherry picked making it appear that S&P held Republicans soley responsible for the downgrading. "tandard & Poor's takes no position on the mix of spending and revenue measures that Congress and the Administration might conclude is appropriate for putting the U.S.'s finances on a sustainable footing."
