    Nope, I condemn both Bush and Bush II (aka Obama). It's just that nothing is going to come of this. Every iteration of president we ratchet down a little further, making a new low each time. But nothing changes, nothing stops, and the Republicans ain't going to put up anyone better than Obama this next time. The road to hell is slow but steady.

    Well, what I think is irrelevant, as what you think I think. However, you have not provided any data to dispute me. That's just a fact.

    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.

    Wrong again Joe. If anything Conservative has posted so much data, some on your side of the argument keep telling him he spams it....Another day, another chance to be wrong eh?

    Apparently you then wouldn't know a fact if it bit you in the ass. BEA.gov, bls.gov, Treasury provides data that is the best we have and is non partisan. That data makes you look and sound foolish

    I was always a fan of Michael Badnarik. Do you mean between Obama and Bush? They're neigh exactly the same, there is no real difference. I'd rather have had neither.

    We constantly hear in here how Obama is doing such a great job from the progressive members. How when we say that the polls are against him, we are just not taking our information from the right sources, or we don't know how to read the polls....Well, here is a poll from NBC for God's sake....In all areas it seems that American's of ALL stripes are just fed up with this liar in office....

    Domestically - 40% approve, 60% disapprove
    Foreign policy - 30% approve 70% disapprove
    Right track/Wrong track - 22% approve, 71% disapprove.....

    etc...

    This is clearly a contender, if not the winner of the absolute worst President this country has ever had.
    Though I'm by no means a real fan of Obama, I can't really agree with that last part. It's hard to beat the likes of Andrew Johnson and James Buchanan, among some others. But I digress.

    It's not surprising news, to me. I think most people disapprove with his domestic policy because it seems we live under the impression that a president has very much to do with it. One could argue Obama has used the executive order to affect domestic policy, and I'm sure that contributed to this disapproval, but even so, not a whole lot going on there for which Congress shouldn't take at least part of the blame as well. As for foreign policy, the problems in Syria, Iraq, Ukraine, and Israel/Gaza all going on at once sure doesn't do him any favors. While I can appreciate his attempt to be cautious with his foreign policy, it's as if he has been a step behind a lot of the time, and his willingness to be aggressive, if necessary, seems a bit cloudy at times. This is my personal gripe with him more than anything. I don't think he's really the best foreign affairs guy. He steps on my academic territory there, haha.

    But yeah, a lot of people are certainly fed up. And I suppose I could count myself among them. Didn't vote for him. Not a big fan.

    Can we get a classical realist on the 2016 ballot please?

    Right after a near financial collapse, Obama and the Democrats successfully pushed through a new law that GUARANTEED unquantifiable Cost increases on every American Corporation and the majority of Businesses AND consumers years before it was implemented.

    Not only did it guarantee higher cost on the people that hire, but it also raised taxes on Capital and dividends.

    That led to years of economic stagnation, TRILLIONS in new debt, MIllions more added to the unemployment, welfare, foodstamp and disability lines.

    Obama is responsible for the disaster that is ObamaCare.

    I'm not going to disagree with you. I would just add that we can't ignore Congress' role in allowing it to pass in the form that it did. Even the Democrats knew it wasn't what they wanted, but they rushed it through and passed it while they could because they were going to have to hand over control of the House to the Republicans. And that was irresponsible, whether they knew how it would affect the economy or not.
