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.
You had to go back nearly 70s years, to find a way to defend Obama? That's very telling.Consider President Eisenhower. In 1953, the year before the Brotherhood was outlawed by Nasser, a covert US propaganda program headed by the US Information Agency brought over three dozen Islamic scholars and civic leaders mostly from Muslim countries for what officially was an academic conference at Princeton University. The real reason behind the meeting was an effort to impress the visitors with America’s spiritual and moral strength, since it was thought that they could influence Muslims’ popular opinion better than their ossified rulers. The ultimate goal was to promote an anti-Communist agenda in these newly independent countries, many of which had Muslim majorities.
Ya know, there was a company of Muslims that served in the Confederate Army. Does that that make The Confederates supporters of Islamofacism, too?
The thing about emperors is that, although they were charged with absolute responsibility for the well being of their society and tended to live or die by that maxim, they also enjoyed broad freedom to punish or marginalize anyone who refused to comply with their vision of the future.
The only thing that can cause an emperor to fail is incompetent planning.
I don't have a high opinion of George Bush, but I never considered him more responsible for the excesses of the War on Terror than the American people as a whole.
If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
Obama was the one who said the world and Muslims will look at Amerika differently after HE was elected.
Our Miss Amerika president. How much crap has this guy been shoveled his whole life to believe that dung? You've got to be a little more than living in some type of fantasy world to first believe such idiocy and then spout it to the world. Of course... the press never called him on it, or much else, and then there are the Miss Amerika Morons that voted for him believing it!

I AM DEPLORABLE.
NEVER CRIMINAL HILLARY (S-NY)
When I read through these threads... sometimes I have to just stand back in awe. These conservatives... its like they were created in a factory, scientists worked day and night to create the stupidest people possible, who would believe the dumbest things for the dumbest reasons and whose sole purpose was to poison progress and ruin everything they touch, dragging their feet and stomping around like whiny children. In every single event that occurs they throw a tantrum and cry about how they hate their mommy and wish she were dead. They know nothing about anything except for one thing, to attack everything good in the world as though it is evil.
