    I think it's because he is a globalist.

    The buck doesn't stop with the Governor of NY.

    I'm not sure that is true. If Obama had been a governor or a CEO of a large corporation for 6 or 8 years, he would have had some practical experience of running a large organization. He had not had that experience.

    Govnor would be closer, but CEO not really the same at all.

    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.

    Better depends on the standard you are using. What is the criteria it is measured against? It's kind of like when we speak of health care, we have to define what is the standard we're measuring against. What is best? better? Worse? Without a measure, such statments become meaningless.

So wait, the real problem is the compliance costs with tax code, so we need to make it easier and less expensive for them to get refunds... then the 60B will finally trickle down to us all.

    I can't wait to see the Libbos poo in their pants when they figure out that Obamacare is...

    wait for it...

    wait for it...

    Tax deductable!

    My respect for you...

    And people wonder why our service members and public servants are being treated with little respect and honor, it's because people like you don't even wear your uniform with respect or honor..
    I've never referred to a service member as a, "parasite", simply because they were serving our country. Unlike yourself.

    Of course you don't respect me: I'm a veteran.

    Why do Liberals believe that there's no such thing as a happy medium?

    Jefferson was referring to public corporations, such as municipalities, not private businesses. But, don't let a little research slow down your spin.
