    Your comment about an unknown and mythical McCain presidency is as stupid as any blind republican ideologue making a negative comment about ANY democrat being president simply by simple virtue of them being a democrat. You have no idea what he would have done or how he would have done it and with who's support. Oh...but you are CERTAIN it would have been worse. And THATS what makes you 'that guy'.

    As for my comment to Boo...I was making it...directly...and to him...and he got it.

    You can be more direct. Really, you can.

    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 yet none of what I said would happen goes against how Republican Presidents and Congressional Republican historically act when in power. Which is why I am so certain. Which doesn't make me that guy.

    Really? So this post in which you asked me to talk about something Boo said was addressed to Boo?

    And I usually am...but sometimes the indirect route is far more enjoyable.

    Here is the stupity equivalent of your comment..."I KNOW that the next democrat president will be a horrible president. ALL DEMOCRATS are horrile politicians and weak leaders."

    As for the Boo comments...he knows what time it is.

    Re: Poll: 44% of Americans Worse Off Under Obama

    today:

    The Federal Reserve's massive stimulus program had little impact on the U.S. economy besides weakening the dollar and helping U.S. exports, Federal Reserve Governor Alan Greenspan told CNBC Thursday.

    In a blunt critique of his successor, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, Greenspan said the $2 trillion in quantative easing over the past two years had done little to loosen credit and boost the economy.

    "There is no evidence that huge inflow of money into the system basically worked," Greenspan said in a live interview.

    "It obviously had some effect on the exchange rate and the exchange rate was a critical issue in export expansion," he said. "Aside from that, I am ill-aware of anything that really worked. Not only QE2, but QE1."

    Greenspanís comments came as the Fed ended the second installment of its bond-buying program, known as QE2, after spending $600 billion. Greenspan said he "would be surprised if there was a QE3" because it would "continue erosion of the dollar."

    On Greece, Greenspan said a default is likely and will "affect the whole structure of profitability in the U.S." because of this country's large economic commitments to Europe, which holds Greek debt.

    Also, Greenspan admited that exports increased during QE1 and QE2, which means job growth did happen and he linked the two.

    Historically republicans rely on tax cuts and deficit spending to stimulate growth. That only works so far, as seen by the recent "recovery"

They have been trying to sabotage any efforts to help the economy since Obama was elected, and proof of that is the number of bills that Republicans have backed or sponsored that would have gone towards helping the economy: zero. Their duplicity is transparent, as are their souls.
    Thank goodness! I was afraid you had not received the democratic parties talking points.
    Let's see. House. Senate. Presidency. Yep. All under control of the Democrats for the first couple of years.

    The Democrats are now accusing the Republicans of doing what the democrats have actually done. Democrats intentionally sabotaged the economy to help move us from a free market economy to top down centralized, government directed economy.

    But you have the talking points so we know the nation is secure.

    This is why I cannot debate with people of your ilk. You seriously believe that the Dems are doing more harm to the economy and trying to move the US away from a free market economy more than repubs. NEWSFLASH, we haven't had a capitalist country since at least the late 1800s and certainly before the NEW DEAL.
