    No. You saying that is your excuse not to address it. Even the next president, say a republican, will nto be the one who started and created this mess. The BOTCHING was dpone long before Obama came in, and no one, democrat or republican can take that away. You can only criticize how well or poorly he dealt with the mess. But the mess, that was Bush's.

    No honest way around that.

    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.

    Then why did Obama double down?

    First, doubling down is your skewed view of what happened. Not what was done. As he stated in the election, he sought to focus on Afghanistan. He did as he said he would, just in a way I would not have. And he keep his word and let the Iraqis set the time table for us leaving. He said that after Bush made the agreement.

    You frankly have a skewed and inaccurate view.

    Nah, the skewing of anything is going on by administration, MSM shills like MSNBC, and supporters that are constantly twisting everything to make excuse for Obama's constant failure on every front.

    No, i don't believe you do know.

    I never asked you for any "self reflection". In fact you offer far too many of these "reflections", and deflections, but are short on straight answers.

    Oh, I know you never ask for any self reflection. I'm saying that's the problem. It is almost always best to look in the mirror first.

    Well, we could always watch Fox. J, you don't want unbiased news. You want a clear bais, to your world view. That's why you always see it different than the reality. Good to see you pulling some opinion as support, but I guess that was to be expected.

    I know this is your distraction, but ask a proper question and I'll give you a proper answer. Read the answer, understand the answer, and I think we'll be just fine.
