    I am. As noted earlier, Bush incited anger because if not one single issue (though Iraq was the major straw that broke the back so to speak), but a body of work that was more than deserving of sustain. Picking single issues as if they stand alone misses the point.

    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.

    Hmmm....Sounds like a typical responsibility shift to me...Is Bush President today? Is Bush pulling Obama's strings? All you do seemingly is blame everything on Bush, and make excuses for Obama.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Read again for comprehension. It's an explanation on why different things are not treated like they are the same. It's the topic of the thread.

    Do us both a favor, and stop baiting people. And no, you are IMHO, just deflecting blame like so many other liberals.

    Again, not baiting, but you were off again.

    It's nice to hear you admit that you believe there are people who have no rights, though.

    Here's your misreading j. I'm having a conversation as to why Obama isn't treated completely like Bush. I didn't bring up Bush, as you indicate (a misreading on your part), but merely answer the question to explain the differences. Nothing is being shifted. Nor is any excuse being made as I have noted that I believe Obama is wrong, should not still be continuing with rendition.

    So you see, your response is not directed at the actual conversation, but what I can best term a misreading.
