    Doens't change the facts. Now try answering me.

    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.

    You don't like the answer, I have no problem getting rid of Federal employees as we did quite well without this number in the past. In a labor force of 142 million, this is a very small number and insignificant if we get rid of most of them starting with Obama

    Don't ask me, I don't have that pretense of knowledge. If you ask Obama's Council of Economic Advisers...the answer is yes. It worked 3 times better than the stimulus.

    You are contradicting yourself.
    No, I said he was responsible for the results because they happened during his term. It wasn't his policies that created the recession.

    This is closer to an answer. But, the direction, the trend is one you support?

    So I assume you consider the government bloating Reagan a failure and the govt-cutting Clinton a ringing success.

    The Trend is certainly right but what is your point. Obama economic policies have generated results that are a disaster but results that you are willing to overlook.

    Pretense of knowledge? You can find that quote but you can't find the jobs numbers and GDP numbers for bush? Odd.
