    Rightwingers believe that the economy is doing fine, even if millions have lost their jobs. Just as long as the rich keeping making money.

    As for the nonsense about Obama, obviously you aren't paying close attention... For example, the number of new unemployment claims shot up every month for the last two years of Bush until it was around 700,000 new people unemployed every month. That number began falling immediately after Obama took office and more jobs have been created than lost each month for months now. Of course the economy doesn't turn around in just a year or two after the kind of devestation Bush created. it takes a long time. But all the numbers have been moving the right direction ever since Obama took office. The stock market, for example, is up 80% since he took office. 80 freaking percent. It was actually DOWN over Bush's ENTIRE TERM... And you guys want to go back to Bush? Come on.
    Actually, while job growth did increase once Obama took office, it has been falling since the repubs took over the house

    When Obama took office there were 12.6 million unemployed and now there are 15.1 million, so where are the jobs?
    The were destroyed by bush*'s economic policies, which according to rightwingers like you, was supposed to create jobs. Taxes were cut, so where's the jobs?

    you must labor under the delusion that taking less from someone who earned something is the same as giving someone money he didn't earn.

    Taylor, I'm certainly capable of making a mistake. However, if greenspans says he's wrong, are you suggesting he doesn't know?

    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.
