    Yes,I guess I did. But since you did not, please quote them for us and tell us how that is demonization and not merely a difference of opinion about economic policy?

    I do not

    I think taxes should be based on what you get for what you pay more than how much you can afford

    and if those who demand much government actually had to pay more for that, they might stop demanding so much government
    Yeah. I'll be sure to mention that my friend who is working (39 hours a week at minimum wage) and has to receive foodstamps so she can feed her children. Quit stereotyping everyone who benefits from government assistance and you might actually be able to see them as human beings rather than the human garbage that you seem to imply they are.

    So food stamps indirectly supplement her employer and the crap wage

    Yes. Those are indeed articles.

    And just what in there supports a charge of demonization of success rather than a difference of position on economic policy?

    why did she have more than one child if she is only capable of a minimum wage job

    tell me why I have a duty to be taxed more and more because she wants more government (or you want more government for her)

    I think the garbage are people who demand I have to pay more taxes so they can keep getting more and more votes or handouts

    not people who have bad luck

    Call it what you will. Perhaps you should write to clinton and he can explain the meaning it "it".

    I have no idea what that means. I simply want to see the evidence of Obama demonizing success. So far, we have seen nothing of the kind.

    You know there is a context to those, right?

    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.

    What most on this site do not understand is that the best CEOs work with and take the advise of the people working for them. This basic concept of good business, or good anything is what Obama seems to lack any understanding of.
    What you fail to understand is the Republican minority leaders Sen. Mitch McConnell and Rep. John Boehner have made their mission not to compromise on ANYTHING that Obama proposes, says or does even when he proposes their own bills and things they have voted for in the past because as McConnell puts it, ""the single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president." To achieve their goal they are even willing to destroy the economy. Romney didn't have that problem because Democrats are more willing to compromise. Obama is true leader, Republicans are true traitors.
