    it's worth the effort to try and get them out, if that's what he's looking to do. Otherwise, a completely foolish idea.

    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.

    I wish I could give him credit for having a plan. But he hasn't had a plan for anything so far.

    It remains to be seen. I've thought of writing my congressman to inquire if any pressure can be brought on the president to get them out. Of course, I have to concede that if I were an American diplomat in Iraq, I would already have removed myself from the country.

    Or the will. I don't care whether Iraq stays alive or not. I'm upset about the money and blood we spent there. It is inexcusable. We were stupid. Hopefully, we are thinking more clearly now. Close the embassy, evacuate Americans and let's put Iraq in the rear view mirror. Hopefully it has taught us a lesson.

    One thing's for sure, if we are telling the troops that they wasted their lives. Whats that going to do for morale?

    We can do all the leavin' you want but...we'll go back.

    Show me proof that the Iranians killed millions of their own people to impose their rule, Im waiting.
