    Chalking up a static economy, its actually shrinking, to the prior President really taxes your credibillity.

    Private investors and corporations actually hire folks who objectively analyze current and FUTURE trends and make decisions based on their conclusions.

    Right now the consensus is to protect their capital. And you think thats totally disconnected from this Presidents rhetoric ? Or the multiple tax increases and mandates in ObamaCare that will and ARE being passed onto the consumer.
    Liberal, conservative, republican, democrat means nothing to true. The recession started before he did anything. That's just a fact.

    And do you really believe any politicians rhetoric is equal to truth? Seriously. Sure, they are hoping it will get better so they can take credit. But let's not confuse that with what they can really do.

    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.

    The term "food" should be replaced on food stamps, you know like "illegal" applying to illegal immigrants. Since they started them the program has been a con game/swindle.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    You can't really deny that the current mess we are in started prior to Obama taking office. In fact it started before Bush and even before Clinton. Our country has been on a path toward economic destruction for quite some time. Maybe someone else can point to when it started, I can't, but we didn't just get on this path. Obama is not doing anything or much to correct it, or in my opinion even improve it. But he did not start it.

    Is it so surprising that when a government starts giving away food that more people will want free food? Or barter it for something they want more?

    If there were TV Stamps, Air Conditioner Stamps, Flower Stamps, etc., people would be lined up to get free TV's, AC's, and flowers, or trade them for something they want instead.

    Governments in democracies will get votes for these giveaways and the majority of people will support them. It does not speak well for the future.

    The electorate had a chance to change course but chose otherwise. The Obamaphoners won, and it was not a good thing for the country.

    voting the other way probably wouldn't have mattered. D and R are basically the same.

    Romney was a better, more experienced man tha Obama. He was an experienced turn-around expert at a time when the country needed some serious turning around. But those who wanted an Obamaphone, or variations thereof, decided that the present(s) is more important the the future.

    The only difference between a Romney and Obama presidency is the people who are mad and the people who are blindlessly defending the president would be reversed.

    Also from your article:

    The service, however, is not new. It actually began back in 1984 as a land-line program to make sure poor people would have a service that allows them to keep in contact with their families and to help them in job searches and emergencies.
    And just who was the president in 1984? Damn near right there smack dab in the middle of a presidency of someone......

    And that presidency was followed by 4 years of a guy with the same party affiliation. And other D and R congresses and presidents have come and gone since this program launched and guess what? It is still here.

    Oh i realize it was begun in 1984 and, as usual, with all the good intentions that lead to such waste. But Obama supporters are the ones who made these 'free' phones famous. Vote for Obama and you get a free Obamaphone!! Another example of the government bribing the people with their own money.

    Just read the first two sentences!
    Nearly half of the 6 million people who received free cellphones and communications services through the government-funded Lifeline program last year apparently were ineligible or did not respond to certification requests, a new report shows. The U.S. government spent about $2.2 billion on the program last year alone, reports The Wall Street Journal, which conducted a review of the program's funding.
    Think some of the electorate might have been bribed with Obamaphones??? Of course if it wasn't Obamaphones it would have been food stamps or something else.
