Australia's deputy prime minister said Friday that the greatest threat to the U.S. economy are "cranks and crazies" in the Republican Party.

Wayne Swan, who also serves as treasurer and is his center-left Labor Party government's ranking finance minister, took aim at the Tea Party during a speech to a business forum on Friday, breaking a convention among Australia's major parties to steer clear of U.S. domestic political debates.

Swan, one of few world leaders able to boast his country had avoided recession during the global financial crisis, also labelled the Tea Party wing of the Republicans as "extreme."

"Let's be blunt and acknowledge the biggest threat to the world's biggest economy are the cranks and crazies that have taken over the Republican Party," Swan said in a speech in Sydney.

Mr. Swan is right on. The world , not just the US economy is held hostage by these House Freshmen that have illegally oathed to obey Grover Norquist over the interest of their own country and their Constituents. Without injecting any partisan politics in the matter, it is illegal for US elected officials to swear allegiance to something that inhibits their ability to serve the people that elected them. The inability to negotiate a budget threatens US Security directly and is a threat to our sovernity.

Parrot more please. Your lack of individual thoughts are pleasing to the socialist overmind.

And before some mod slaps me for saying that as a derogatory comment, it's not said with any malice. It's said as A) a fact and B) satire. Live with it.
