    This would make sense, if it were being quoted out of context. It's not.

    the local deli, didn't pave any roads or build any bridges.

    Toys R Us, didn't either.

    Neither did Target, Macys, Sears, Bed Bath & Beyond, or Dave & Busters.

    And the Romney cmapaign is different how?

    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.
