    but with the money spent on lobbying, to some degree it could potentially disturb the outcome of the election, and when i say disturb, i'm referring to perry and his multi-million dollar corporate funding campaign is what may possibly take obama down in 2012.

    I'm sorry .. I just don't understand your posts sometimes ....... if our government .. just (as it has been doing on a large scale of late) prints money, is that not creating dollars ??? As it prints more and more dollars, has it not helped devalue our dollar against other currencies?

    Yep. Sadly.

    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.

    WHen do you think anyone will?
    I don't know how you felt but I was really disappointed that he did not ask me to attend the speech

    -laughs- what did I hear Obama was aiming for in this election run .. . I believe it's a billion dollars ...... When he ran in 2008 Didn't he run the most expensive campaign, in terms of dollars, in the history of our country. Now you are worrying about someone that might be able to come close to getting the same amount of money .... and you suddenly don't like it ??

    You implied it when you called it a "ponzi scheme" since a ponzi scheme is fraudulent by definition.

    No, the joke was on America when we elected George Bush and he decided rather than raise airport security while there was a perceived threat of hijackings like his predecessor had done, that spending a few more days on the ranch to watch Sesame Street was the optimal decision to make. Unfortunately for America, that joke resulted in 4 hijacked planes in a single morning on his watch with 3,000 people being murdered.

    Yeah yeah I know .. . it's Bush's fault .. why everything is Bush's fault .. why . . simple because the talking heads have told you so .. .and you like a good little boy march in lock step with them ..... I guess Fort Hood was Bushes fault too .. Or the Christmas underwear bomber .. . was Bush's fault too . . I have one question to weak assed liberals like yourself .. do you . . or will you ever man up . .and take responsibility for anything .. .. or is it always going to be someone else's fault ?
