    So ... I did not point out you responded to a post of mine, huh?

    Attachment 67145892

    ... then how do you explain my name attached (circled in red for your convenience) to the post you claim I didn't identify as mine??
    Not in your post when you first said I had responded to a post about gold.

    Not even close. Everyone on the football team works for the GM. that is not the case with the president. he has virtually no control over any business. At best, he can only directly effect government employees. As the point of my analogy was the lack of control each quarterback had of over other factors, I think my analogy works better than yours.

    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.

    That's quite demented logic on your part since I never said 8.9% is better than 5.3%. What I actually said, although it's now apparent you weren't paying attention, was that an averge of 1.1 point higher than when Obama started is better than the 1.3 points (your original claim) it was higher under Bush.

    Do you get it now? I wasn't comparing the unemployment rate -- I was comparing the effect on the unemployment rate based on what each president inherited from their respective predecessors.
    Every POTUS is fully responsible for the outcome on his watch. GWB 5.3%. BHO 8.9%.

    And stop lying. Federal income tax revenues fell after those tax cuts went into effect. Bush tax cuts went into effect in 2001 and then again in 2003. FIT revenues fell both of those years. FIT revenue began increasing again thanks to the swelling housing market bubble.

    2001 1,145
    2002 1,006

    2005 1,206
    2006 1,398
    2007 1,534
    2008 1,450
    2009 1,054
    2010 1,090
    2011 1,273
    2012 1,375

    Wrong, they totally went into effect in July 2003 but don't let the facts get in the way of your Bush derangement syndrome. It really is sad that you have such hatred for a former President that causes you to divert from the disaster that Obama is. The results speak for themselves. By the way Bush was in office for 8 years and generated 4.9 trillion in debt, Obama has been in office less than five and the debt is 6 trillion. It does seem that leadership skills aren't something you understand.

    You are free to believe whatever nonsense helps you get through the day. BHO's economic management has been abysmal.

    Well, you're wrong. No POTUS creates legislation and no POTUS can sign legislation if its blocked by a party that wants to make him a one-term president.

    Keep believing the liberal lies, Obama got everything he wanted up until January 2011 and there was no improvement in employment and in fact people kept dropping out of the labor force. Now you can keep blaming someone else for Obama's failures or do what is mature and accept responsibility for the very poor choice you made in electing him and then voting to re-elect him. Anything else shows you to be a partisan liberal hack who is out of touch with reality and the actual data.
