    And BTW...as your little 'liker' would GLADLY point out to you...a president McCain couldnt possibly have an impact on the economy. INTERESTING that he 'liked' your comments since he so very much disagrees with them...
    it's only Republican presidents who effect the economy, and only negatively... haven't you been paying attention?

    I keep telling no president control's the economy.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    And McCain would have done the same, except with more tax cuts, who the GOP would have supported, thus pushing us deeper in debt and raising our deficit even more since it would have passed through in Congress.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    You think McCain would have sunk 800billion into a crapulus package like Obama did? Keep dreaming.

    Just on a different set of expendentures. We'd probably have invaded Syria or gave oil companies more money to drill somewhere. Remember, we have a lot of experience with republicans spending.

    Really?



    Q: Which parts of the $700B bailout will help people? McCAIN: This rescue package means we will stabilize markets, we will shore up these institutions. But it’s not enough. That’s why we’re going to have to go out into the housing market and buy up these bad loans and we’re going to have to stabilize home values, and that way, Americans can realize the American dream and stay in their home.
