    Obama has said a lot of things putting his supporters in an adoring daze. Where is the proposal? What did he do with total control of Congress including a filibuster proof Senate for a time.

    Debt is the responsibility of the President only insofar as he is required by law to submit a budget to Congress. He did that (on or about Feb 6, 2011) and look at where it got him? It's no 100% on Congress to resolve this budget issue w/the President mediating accordingly. He's doing his job; I wish Congress would do theirs.

    And there goes the "It's Obamas' fault" line, though I'm sure it will be resurrected soon enough

    Conservative, there's something that's right up your alley. (And I'm being polite here; fact is you are known as the resident charts and stats guy here. Consider it a compliment for once. )
    Thank you, but there is no evidence that the TARP repayment was ever put back into revenue and if it was that makes the Obama deficits worse

    Second you do. So, say it for the record, Bush is repsonble for increasing the debt.

    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.

    Where did I say anything about a govt mandate. It would help if your responses were to things I actually said, as opposed to what you would have liked me to have said.

    It got him a vote of 0-97. Let's make no mistake in believing that anything voted down 0-97 was anything other than a dishonest effort.

    What can I say, Conserv...

    You have Blue-Dog Democrats amongst Liberals as you have Tea Party hardline conservatives among Republicans. Speaker Boehner isn't President, but he's having no better luck convincing members of his party to act in the best interest of the country and work with him than Pres. Obama had with conservative Democrats early in his presidency. That's why you need someone who is able to force "compromise" when you can't get your way 100%.
