    And the question you continue to ignore . . .

    "So what?"

    Not that I need to keep pointing it out to you -- you know you're ignoring it.

    Did you ask Romney so what? I'm sorry you don't like the answer, but the answer is, now read slowly . . . . One . .. is . . . not . . . the . . . enemy . . . of . . . the . . . other. It's not radical, major, significant, or even orginial. But it is also not the silliness your side wants to pretend it is.

    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.

    Jesus H Christ, what is your problem?

    This does not answer anything. "One is not the enemy of the other?" Again, so . . . the . . . **** . . . WHAT? It's the same goddamn truism.

    So, I guess your answer is, it was empty rhetoric, nothing more.

    If it's not, please supply the substance.

    By what measure, for heaven's sake?

    That "wealthy" guy down the street pays a landscaping company that employs a dozen people to cut his grass and tend his gardens. He pays a cleaning service for housecleaning every week. That cleaning service probably employes dozens and dozens of less-than-skilled immigrant ladies. He spends thousands of dollars every year on home maintenance/decorating that also employs dozens of lower-skilled workers. He spends more money in a month to invigorate our economy than you probably do in a whole year. He owns four cars. Pays $25,000 or more in real estate taxes. May employ dozens/hundreds/thousands of people.

    By what measure, for heaven's sake?

    Hey everyone! Boo says he's non-partisan! Does ANYONE believe that?


    When you ignore a fact, like a clear thesis statement, you are neither reasonable nor honest.
    I'm not ignoring anything, you are. Your partisan bias has you making excuses for what the anointed one said.

    Of course, he did not say that. So, you have it completely wrong.
    Nope. That's what he said.

    Would that be different than your side, Boo?

    What's funny is that Gimmesometruth is in another thread calling me stupid for not reading the speech exactly the way Boo claims the right-wing is distorting it. "Your side," indeed.
