    Well, I think you read what you want to read sometimes.

    Nope, you just tried to excuse Bush doing it because you said he didn't say he would "Fundamentally change the country".

    Only reading YOUR comments, not my fault you are excusing Bush for doing the same thing.

    Oh wait...sorry, I see you were stupidly trying to make a snide suggestion that opposing Obama = Racism. How incredibly unbigoted of an attitude to have, stereotyping in such a way.

    I have noticed that as soon as the argument starts heading south for some liberals, at that point the race card is already headed for the table.

    Well, tell me, the exec orders that Bush was passing through, how many of them were things that had to do with funding the wars, as opposed to domestic agenda items that are now being done to subvert the will of the people?

    I read the 'son' as being the Obamacare agenda.

    So, now we come to the meat of your issue. It's not that you have a problem with Obama passing agenda through executive order, you just have a problem with Obama passing agendas through executive orders YOU DON'T LIKE. You approved of Bush's agendas, but not Obama's. That's fair, but don't say you are against passing agenda through executive order when you actually supported Bush doing it.

    Thanks for clearing that up.

    Bush didn't have a domestic agenda, so that would be pretty obvious.
    "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 don't know about that. As someone who voted for Dole, I think Bush lost it when he invaded Iraq. At that point, he earned a lot of the distain people held for him.

    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.
