Mitt Romney said it again at last night's Republican debate:
I was fortunate enough to be a governor that got an increase in the credit rating of my state at the same time we got a president who got a decrease in the credit rating of our nation.
But, question: How did Mitt Romney get Standard & Poors to up the Massachusetts credit rating while he was leading that state?
Answer: By bragging to the agency that his state had raised taxes during hard economic times.
And why did S&P downgrade America this year? In part because Republicans in Congress "continue to resist any measure that would raise revenues" during hard economic times.
And what did President Obama want to do that Republicans in Congress refused to do before the downgrade? Raise revenue during hard economic times.
And where was Romney while all of this was going on? Disappeared.
