    South Carolina's Sixth District Congressman, Jim Clyburn, seems to be asleep during the State of the Union address.

    Obviously you better contact the Bureau of Labor Statistics and tell them their numbers are wrong.

    No, you brought up Gore, and I said you have his context wrong, to which you went back to LBJ. Please try to focus.

    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.

    If Bush had added 4.6 trillion to the debt like Obama has he would have almost doubled it in 3 years, that is my point.

    Your "point" is specious. All things being equal Bush doubled the debt. And had could he run for a third term you would have voted for him again over the Democratic nominee.

    Just going by your record and statements.

    You vote for candidates that have proportionately higher increases in debt.

    No President in U.S. history has generated the debt in three years that Obama has generated. you can stop playing the game now as I know you aren't going to vote to re-elect him. No business owner or former business owner would ever do that
