    I didn't support TARP but the Great Depression was caused by the failure of the banks and TARP bailed out the banks preventing failure or so we were told. Either way it was a Bush program not an Obama program. I would have let them fail but regardless those were loans and most of them have been repaid. Using the Savings and Loan crisis was no where near the magnitude of the TARP bailouts.

    You're the one OK with spending, as long as it is republican spending.

    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.

    BTW conservative, TARP isn't military spending. Was that another Squirrel moment?

    You said TARP was OK. I noted it. Nothing more.

    I guess when I said that I didn't support TARP you did what you always do, make things up

    Right here. The one I responded to. I'll highligh the words for you.

    That was later, and somewhat confussing. You praise it, but say you don't support it. Doesn't ring true or logical.
