    Going off wild won't help you J. The question was do you really believe they are the same?

    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.

    I think they are both appeals to emotion. So yes, they are similar.

    Yes, appeals to emotion, which in and of itself is not bad. But, think harder. Are they the same? Rate them.

    Really. That seems more like an awareness. Because they are getting stuck with the bill. I guess you dont see it that way.

    Once again for the people that didnt read the rest of the thread...EVERY politician does it on the campaign trail, doing it as part of policy rollout is a little more rare.
    As I explained several times, read the damn thread next time.

    This has to be the dumbest thread I've ever read.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    I think the opposition ought to talk about Sasha and Malia and how repugnant it is that todays generation think nothing off continued reckless and irresponsible spending on their heads. Hey Sasha and Malia...Im very sorry, but your daddy presided over a government that doubled the entire national debt in his first four years and You have to pay for it. Vote out both parties...and do it for the children.

You have a 30 foot strawman running with your asinine statement that isnt close to what I said.

    BTW...undisclosed? Not so much.
    Yeah, I don't give a **** about what goes under my anonymous handle on an internet forum and won't waste my time filling them out. So you have a problem with that? Why don't you look to yourself if you want to see logical fallacies.

    It's fine if you think Obama brings out his children because his arguements are weak, so do the politicians who use their sick children as emotional appeals by the same standard. But of course, it's too much to expect partisans like you to see above your own hypocrisy. Trying to make a distinction with no value like claiming that bringing children on stage is different from mentioning them in speeches about policies is just the same sort of partisan crap, as if people like Santorum or Palin don't mention their family all the time when talking about social policies.
