S&P: Negative Outlook for U.S. Treasury Bonds

by

Typical comment on S&P outlook change for U.S. Treasury Bonds:

“Why are we paying attention to Standard and Poor’s opinion, a firm that gave favorable [AAA] ratings to junk mortgage funds at the behest of their investment-banker clients? I don’t think the firm has any credibility left.”
