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.
Bush was President for 8 years.. that is about 2920 days.
He spent 487 days at Camp David, and 490 days at his Texas ranch.
That leaves 1943 days in the White House, which is not even accurate because that includes official state visits and campaign visits and other visits.
And now the conservatives are complaining that Obama goes to Camp David with his family.... when Obama has a full 2 years of vacation time out of his 8 years in office, then we can talk about bashing him.
Bush left office in January of 2009. It's time you live in the present.Originally Posted by sangha
I have criticized Bush for that when he was in office... however, Bush left office in January of 2009. It's time you live in the present.Originally Posted by sangha
He should do more to get us over the crisis. Then he should do less, in fact the FED (Federal Governement) should all do less.Originally Posted by sangha

Here are the directions again: "Re-read my previous post on the subject. Repeat."Originally Posted by sangha
That's an outright lie. Your posts have ONLY defended Obama. Your tactic is to try and change the subject to Bush, which is a Progressive strategy. You've shown your cards and your slant a long time ago. You're the only one who still thinks or is playing otherwise.Originally Posted by sangha

So let's sum up.
1. You're no independent - but a rabid progressive defending Obama in this thread
2. Your tactic is to reverse every issue to Bush - thus avoiding any honest discussion
3. You're words are only intellectually dishonest or at best, misleading, for the aforementioned partisan reasons
4. The constant use of "wingnuts" and "rightwingers" identifies your purpose
Dime a dozen pal... your boring, your intellectually dishonest and cannot discuss the topic at hand with any credibility, you make Alinsky type accusations, fail to back them up, and constantly name call.
Wow... never seen this before.
Let me know when you have something other than "Bush" to point to. Just in case you missed it:
Bush left office in January of 2009. Time to live in the present.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
