    The poor guy was for the most part getting ignored during majority of the debate. Had to re-learn how to talk when they finally did call on him.

    In this case, pretty sure he was just noting that Iran getting a nuclear weapon would be a game changer in the Mideast theater. To which I would concur.

    As for speaking in the third person, usually annoying. (How'd that work out for ol' Bob Dole...?? )

    It is the same thing every 4 years, "Washington sucks and I know how to save the economy".

    Bachmann wants to lower taxes on corporations to create jobs. But please tell me how we can compete with China where the average worker makes $117 to $147 a month. Or better yet how do we compete with Banglades where workers make $ 64 a month?
    It seems the only way you could compete with that kind of labor force is government subsidies but then everyone wants to get away from the government.

    Perhaps we should forget about those minimum wage jobs and let the third world do them and pollute their own land. Maybe we should become better educated as a country and become the engineers and not the broom pusher. But not one word in this political debate about our pathetic low educational driven citizens.

    We are a country of low achieving overweight lazy citizens. Any doubt to that just go visit a state fair.

    I wonder how much longer a country of low achieving overweight lazy citizens will be able to maintain its standard of living?

    How could anyone sleep at night after voting for Bachmann? Do we have a whole party on drugs?

    An ignorant mind is too often a peaceful mind.

    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.

    There was an entire political party on drugs in 2008. It's not out of the realm of possibility it could happen again.

    I'm voting for the candidate with the highest entertainment value. Since the government seems bound and determined to **** us all one way or the other, it seems like electing for laughability is our only viable option.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Sweeping statements like this are, at best, asinine. The suggestion that your "side" had the answer any more than the other "side" is so preposterous that it can only be the lead-in for the worst joke in the history of the United states.

    I know I had to counteract EarlzP's asinine statement to balance out the universe. "Every action has an equal and opposite reaction" you see.

    Who suggested that?
