Debt Ceiling Up, Credit Rating Down, Tea Party Blamed

Help me understand this sequence of events:
  1. Obama raised the debt ceiling.
  2. The Tea Party opposed Obama's debt ceiling deal (68%/22%).
  3. Tea Party opponents loved it (57%/35%).
  4. S&P downgraded U.S. credit rating because Obama's debt ceiling deal "falls short."
  5. Tea Party opponents blame Tea Party for credit rating downgrade.

From Reaganite Republican... "I call on the president to seek the immediate resignation of Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner."
