    No one claims that politicians are the shiniest pennies in the drawer....But how does that deflection detract from the message given at the event?

    I haven't checked to confirm Jerry's supposition; however, as no one is privy to any inside information on any such call, once again some huge leaps are taking place.

    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.

    Well, not to worry, regardless of your own self perception of importance to this issue, thank goodness we are not reliant on your checking, or not.

    Apparently, you don't need any "facts" at all.

    No, you have that wrong....When you actually present facts, I mean actual facts, I'll consider them. So far you play far to fast and loose with what you call facts, as to question your whole integrity on any issue. Sorry.

    You spoke of his phone call. I'll wait for you to present the "facts" of that call. While the leaps some of you have made on this have been amusing, they have not been factual.

    Well, I am off to bed, gotta go to Indy tomorrow, maybe when I get back, I'll consider whether your claim of what I spoke of is even worth consideration of a reply...My guess is it is just one more thing you have wrong...Night now.

    Other than the 102 yr old, what was it that Obama promised in this speech, that wasn't rehashed, repackaged, warmed over BS from 2009?

    We get it. You don't like Obama. But can we at least pick some criticism that doesn't apply to every president? Every congressional leader? Every party? How original and unreheased do your really think cut taxes and he's a socialist really are?
