    I paid no attention to the election, and from what I was reading in the news, I am not surprised by the results

    Who else but an idiot liberal hack would do that? I guess I should have said "idiot liberal hacks" instead of just liberals? I'm not looking for respect on a website. I could care less about that. I just don't believe I'm a hack, as a lot of people would attest to on here.

    No fair using facts and logic - elections are about feelings. Remember that many liberal's feelings got hurt tonight. ;-)

    The only problem I see with that graph is the assumption that Unions are the cause. I suspect there are more than a few elements at work there.

    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.

    Actually, I didn't make the claim that unions were the cause.

    I was simply pointing out that the supposedly anti-worker Walker sure did help get some people working again.

    I don't see where it says that public unions are the cause. You? This is about fiscal policy.

    Well, since I am libertarian, I have no feelings, thus cannot identify with that line of reasoning.
