Obama's legacy - National Debt / Credit Downgrade / Obamacare Failure / Economic Failure / Foreign Policy Failure / Liar of the Year Award / The Rise of ISIS
Yeah, times got rough, real rough. And that damage was done before Obama took office. Did you think they would swear him in and the sun would shine, robins would sing and all problems woudl vanish? No preident created these problems and none can make them better. It will take time and a lot of work from a lot of people, including you and me and the private sector. But government does not and can not control the economy without taking control. If you want the government to, lobby for that and help us beciome China (who don't have much for regulations). If you don't, quit whining that government hasn't fixed this problem.
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.
