    There was a world of difference between them.

    Romney was a seasoned qualified honest respected bussiness man who had plenty of victories from his days in the private sector. ( the liberal press just lied alot about the guy )

    Obama was experienced with sitting in the vacuim of a University Classroom or lounge and talking hypotheticals with radical proffessors who never worked a day in their lifes and who's theories only worked in their twisted isolated worlds where they're surrounded by sycophants and agreeable associates..

    I just remembered something...Pol Pot was educated at a left wing University in France prior to his massacres.

    Wow...those universities create some dooozies huh ?

    One, a country isn't a business, so being a business person has no special place as a qualification. Second, they held almost the same views. The only major difference was Romney's willingness to flip flop.

    As for the hyperbolic nonsense about Pol Pot, odd that you equation knowledge with something evil. You'll find most leaders of all movements were educated.

    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.

    But to give you a hint, its not Boehners cliff to begin with.

    Obama as all others before him should be held accountable for his record defecit spending and his refusal to compromise on entitlment reform.

    For the upteenth millionth time this is Obama's economy and if you HAVE to point to a prior recession from that 2008 sub-prime collapse thst was due to redistributive policies also mandated by the Democrats.
    What caused the cliff is a law that was passed by Congress in August 2011 by a majority of Republicans and an even split of Democrats. Its kinda cute how you have no idea what you are talking about but you act like you know everything.

    Either way, my solution is to get them to hash out a deal and avoid this damn thing.

    Well the United States is certainly not being run like any business I've heard of, that's certain. if that were the case everyone would have been thrown out and chapter 13 initiated. But Barrack Obama has neither run a business, a county, a city or a state before a sufficient number of Americans decided to elect a know-nothing president. What does that say for the majority of the American voters? Certainly some sort of leadership experience, or at least some administrative experience, should have been essential rather than electing someone with no real experience at all.

    You mean you voted for an incompetent buffoon, and deliberately ignored Obama's flip flops, while ignoring one of the most able candidates in the United States? This is the reason for supporting barrack Obama??? Don't you feel ashamed??

    I am talking about discretionary spending only. SS and Medicare are paid for. Show me the big increase in non-defense discretionary spending. Any increases there are come from recession related programs like food stamps and unemployment insurance. Is that the big increase you are talking about? Do you want to put more people out of work? Would that solve our problems?

    Actually he has four years experience running the country now.

    And no, Obama is not in the same flip flop league as Romney. For the record, I merely voted for the better choice. Want another come, choose a better candidate.

    You are in a dream world? You don't actually believe that social security and medicare are paid, do you?
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Because they are and have not contributed one penny to the debt either. You know this too but won't admit it. You want to write off $2.7 Trillion of the hard earned wages of millions of people as mere numbers. The fact that the money was invested in the U.S. Govt. does not mean it was lost. As long as the U.S. Govt stands it will make good on that debt. And we will need EVERY PENNY.
