    The problem right now that the GOP fails to recognize is that people see Obama has messed up. However, the reason Obama has messed up is he didn't have a plan other than to throw money at a problem.

    Now the GOP wants to give more money to corporations and they aren't even combatting the reason WHY people are unemployed. People are not unemployed because of OBamaCare. They aren't unemployed because companies don't have enough money, they are sitting on trillions. People are unemployed because of training and lack of jobs. What GOP plan combats the training issue because once jobs come around people will need training for them.

    What plan is there for the housing problem and people owing far far more than their house is worth?

    You can say "Well that's their problem", but people are hurting and they are looking for help. If the GOP won't provide any, they will continue to look to Obama for handouts.

    That isn't even taking into consideration the GOP candidates are looking like fools and out of touch with people.

    Adding all that up, I would be willing to bet an Obama victory. And I don't even want Obama for 4 years, howerver none of the GOP clowns show they know what's better.

    In the liberal world allowing companies to keep more of what they earn is giving them money. That couldn't be further from the truth and shows the problems we have today.

    Obamacare hurts the small businesses not the large corporations but that fact escapes the left.

    Without ObamaCare, jobs were still being lost at a stagering rate even under Bush. Sorry, but your ObamaCare BS is proven false. And the GOP have shown they only want to keep making the rich richer instaed of helping America as a whole prosper.

    Jobs were lost during the last year of the Bush Administration and still he ended up with a net job gain for his term. Bush didn't spend 4.5 trillion dollars in three years to generate a net job loss nor did the Bush stimulus bailout unions and not create any jobs. Bush inherited the Clinton recession and then had 9/11. Jobs were lost his first two years and the Bush tax cuts weren't implemented until the end of fiscal year 2001. Obama's economic policy was passed in February 2009 or the first month of his Administration and the results would have been much improved with the right economic policy.

    Not in a row! LOL! And that's the length of time the Democrats had to fix 8 years of the Bush Administration?

    So you're blaming Bush's problems on Clinton and 911?

    You are too much.

    Oh, I wouldn't let democrats off the hook, but your mistake is thinking it is either or. It's both. republicans are also responsible for what they did. No one gets to be exempt from responsibility for their actions.

    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.
