    It's really too bad school vouchers weren't made available to you. I never said he didn't have a political career, i said it was unimpressive, as pretty much everyone knows. It seems you agree with the rest.

    Besides making a fool of himself, by stating Obamacare is worse than Obamacare, I don't detest the man. He should thank his lucky stars he walks today because of liberals who who fought for his civil rights.
    Actually it was Republicans who fought for his civil rights. The Democrats fought a civil war against his rights and wouldn't have allowed him an equal education. They would have attacked him with dogs and fire hoses.

    This media whore asshole knows the things to say to get the press to give him the attention he seems to crave, and he doesn't care how absolutely stupid it makes him sound to say them

    But you see, however, that was my point with the line that Dr. Carson has time.

    At the same time I don't think Obama was prepared, he should have run for governor of Illinois and gotten some executive cred under his belt...being a lawyer to community organizer to a couple of legislative gigs he was ill suited, not ready for prime time...but he did it anyways... so between the two I would give the nod to Carson, he has the more American core belief system...Barrack has proven himself an empty suit and unsuited as presidential material.
    Kobe did fine eventually, but he didn't even start until his second or third season. The President of the United States doesn't have the luxury of coming in off the bench at first.

    Obama was unprepared, and not well qualified. However, I don't think that the answer to that is to replace him with another ill-prepared and unqualified person. Voting for Obama in 2008 because he was the "opposite of Bush" was a mistake, and voting for Carson in '16 because he's the "opposite of Obama" would also be a mistake.

    Certainly he was unprepared, unqualified and of limited intellectual groundings but he was re-elected! Certainly the opposite of Obama is what's required.

    And when people begin looking seriously at a candidate like Hillary Clinton then you know something is terribly, terribly wrong in American politics.

    and how does being a doctor prepare one for being president of the united states? Does dr. carson have a law degree or any background in constitutional law.

The normal legislative order of the Senate was set aside in order to defy the will of the people. While effective for passage, the maneuver has failed to create consensus, and therefore created ongoing dissatisfaction. The key to appropriate public usurpation of labor is consent.
    So it's not an ideological opposition. You just have an arbitrary line of percentage of economy.

    Nobody has to acquire health insurance under the law. However, if you do not acquire health insurance and have an income above a certain level, you will have a small tax penalty.

    You sell both short and are factually wrong, not to mention sounding a tad racist coining either from you or Reid.

    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.

    How does having a degree in Constitutional Law. or any law degree, make a difference? Many people have them but that does not make them leaders, able to get people working together..
