Then when people do and debunk you, you just say they don't know how to read. Like I said, everyone is on to your schtick.

Good leadership is needed, Reagan offered it in the 80's and Obama doesn't have a clue nor do most of his supporters. More people are dependent on the govt. today than ever before and liberals love that. You offer people over 2 years of unemployment benefits and there isn't a lot of incentive for some to find a job.
    I can't stress this enough.the way you create real wealth is by manufacturing goods. Take raw materials add labor and the result is something of greater value. Today there is very little that isn't manufactured abroad. We are in deep dodo because of it.

    Yes, here were 146 million working Dec 2007, but you don't mention that an additional 3 million jobs are lost while Bush is still president.

    And yes, there are many dependent upon the government today, much of the because of the economy, but the are many of the baby boomers who are drawing on Medicare and SS.

    Great, then you think 195000 jobs created with most of them being part time positions is a good report and the fact that there are just 177,000 fewer people unemployed today than when Obama took office after adding over 6 trillion to the debt? You think it is a good thing for the private sector to be saddled with more regulations, higher taxes, and Obamacare

    Yes, and we are just back to those numbers today over four years after the end of the recession. You said the loss of manufacturing jobs from the 80's was the problem ignoring the number working during 2007. You cannot have it both ways, blaming Republicans and ignoring Obama's performance.

    You have a very narrow view of the private sector as we have gone well beyond the manufacturing segment being a major part of wealth creation. New industries have been created and always will be and more private sector billionaires being created. Sounds to me like you are just jealous you aren't one.

    Again people are dependent on the govt. today four years after then end of the recession because of poor leadership and poor economic policies. that is reality liberals want to blame on someone else. Most aren't baby boomers, most are younger workers who cannot find a job in the Obama economy.

    I think we missed the boat on new technologies. Specifically in the energy sector. After the destruction from the asset bule of the last administration and the anti-science tech stance of it we got a long way to go. China has taken the lead after most solar cells are manufactured there and these are not low paying jobs.

Of the 536 elected folks in DC, controlling the entire federal gov't, you may vote for (or against) no more than 3 in any single election. Voting is a scary thing, much like driving, when you consider the reality of it; even if you are of exactly median intelligence then fully half of the folks that you share the roadway (or voting booth) with are dumber than you are.

    Different time with different circumstances. Go back to the list of problems I gave you. Also, you make what they call a CAUsal relationship error. You assume Reagan was responsible for what happened. Each president hopes he's in office when things turn around. He can then take credit. Critical thinkers ask for more evidence.

    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 entitlement attitude is hard to get past.

    is there a point when there is too much gridlock? because i think we have already passed that point since we missed several important deadlines.

    Not sure where you got your education but the reality is good leadership always generates good results and poor leadership generates what you are seeing today. It is easy for a liberal to pass the blame of what is going on today to someone else or do what you do, say this is a different time and different place. Good Leadership qualities transcend time and that is something you cannot seem to understand.

    You have a tendency to overthink everything and our economy isn't that difficult to understand. Contrary to your own opinion you aren't so smart that others cannot do what you did on your own nor are you so dumb that you don't understand what happens when people have more spendable income. Liberalism is making a fool out of you and it is proven by the fact that you cannot offer an economic policy implemented by Obama that was pro growth, pro private sector, and pro taxpayer. Obama is a community agitator with zero executive and very poor leadership skills. His leadership position is do as I say but ignore what I do. People like you feint and buy the rhetoric. He and other liberals tell you that no President can solve the problems we have today only because liberals are always failures at solving problems. They just throw someone else's money at the problem and if it isn't spent to their satisfaction ask for more claiming that this group of liberals didn't spend the money correctly. It is a vicious circle and you my friend are caught up in that circle thus part of the problem we have today.
