    Didn't present a premise.

    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.

    Barrack Obama really didn't negotiate to have those five terrorists released?

    Of course he did! And in fact he paraded his victorious negotiations at the White House for all the world to see!

    No, he really didn't.

    The difference with Bergdahl, as Obama argues, is that he wasn’t really a hostage grabbed by terrorists. He pretty neatly fit the classic definition of a prisoner of war. He had just left a military outpost in an obvious war zone while (presumably) wearing his uniform. History is loaded with examples of nations—including America—making deals to free their soldiers.

    And however nasty the Taliban may be, it’s not really a “terrorist” enemy as we commonly understand the word.

    Yes, you can certainly defeat countries as countries have defined leaders. Tell me who the leaders are of radical Islam and what would you negotiate? Do you have any idea what their ideology and goals are?

    Reagan isn't in office but i find it quite telling how you always bring up the past and ignore the present showing how little you understand about leadership.

    Not what I said. I said you can't defeat terrorism by defeating countries.

    Nope, but he did appease and you guys look up to him anyway. I'm pointing out a double standard.

    Needless to say Bush stopped the movement by winning the war, something you will never admit but "your" President lost the peace. The Status of Forces Agreement was signed in November 2008 and speculation on my part is that if Bush remained in office there would have been a contingency force remaining in Iraq and we wouldn't have the problems there we have today. "Your" President wanted no part of Iraq and couldn't care less about what he left although he called it one of his greatest accomplishments, an accomplishment which he is walking away from today again blaming Bush.

    No he didn't. He trained the next generation. He stopped nothing.
