    You mean 2007-2008 when Obama and Democrats controlled the legislative process and the purse strings? Keep diverting from the Obama record especially since he had overwhelming control of the Congress day One when he took office. If any Republican had the Obama results three years into the Republican Administration you would be going crazy but now it is ok because it is Obama. Why do you support this empty suit and divert from his real record?

    They know it but they are still going to vote for him. Obamas got that banker/broker spunk he on him and they know he is going to keep tossing them crumbs, signing those checks. You have a lot more faith in that 47% than i do.

    Um, yeah, 2007 and 2008 when the real estate bust was already baked in ... and how many bills did Congress force through over Bush's veto?

    You mean that real estate bust that Democrats were part of? Maybe if Obama didn't spend so much time seeking a new job instead of accepting a paycheck for a job he didn't do, he would have been better prepared to take over. Obama's problem however is one experienced by most liberals,, lack of leadership skills.

    I'm sure that I don't want to cite misleading statistics like you just did! Because that would mask the fact that unemployment was about 8% and soaring the day that Bush handed over the keys to Obama.

    Bush lied by moving the decimal point. It was really 50% per year.

    Now I argue no president controls this. However, it is funny that you think the leap from 2008 to 2009 had nothing to do with what happened before obama became president.


    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.
