    They same it has been with all presidents. We elected him. Now go back to the exaggerating.

    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.

    Yes, you elected him, well done, but that is not the point.

    The point is the intellectual shallowness of the electorate who made this woeful decision. At one time the American people were among the most politically and economically sophisticated in the world. Now we have this.

    Once is an experiment perhaps, but twice suggests there is a huge problem within the American education system.

    You recognize this J-Mac but the pity is that the majority don't. Do you have any ideas where the problems lie?

    Nowhere near as bad as you pretend. You guys are so insecure in your arguments that you have to exaggerate. The truth should be enough.

    Nothing. It has to do with Bush's dismal performance, which is why both of them have similar approval ratings. Obama is the master of his own dismal performance.

    Frightened of the media, perhaps. They do usually control the dialogue.

    The bizarre part is that it's only PROGRESSIVES (not democrats) that support him at like 90%.... Now lets factor the numbers... lol.

    This is probably why the Duck Dynasty stuff is selling off the shelf...
