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.
Anything that is centrist appears to be on the opposite side to a radical.
Same with those on the far left. They can't tell the difference between CNN and Fox News, for the same reason: anything that isn't radical left must be radical right.
As far as the actual news programming (prior to 8pm), I don't watch it, I work during the day, so my observations are only for the pm programming. I guess I should have disclosed that first.
There is right or wrong and you are on the wrong side of history as well as the wrong side of the economic spectrum that makes any sense at all. Personal responsibility, individual wealth creation, states handling social issues are what made this country great. Neighbor helping neighbor has always been our guiding principles but not any more as you and your ilk promote the Federal Govt. being that neighbor. Liberalism is a total and complete failure and the only economic principles that make any sense are conservative ones.
That old fart who used to be on Mash, he's the worst. Almost no statistic that he states is currently accurate, he cherry picks his data from particular months, sometimes from years in the past, and then presents these numbers as if they were true today or typical of our current situation. But he is far from the only one who does this.
Now name for me any prominent Conservatives on MSNBC? Not sure what "old fart" you are talking about but probably Wayne Rogers who is in the Business bloc not a political commentatorFox actually has several liberals as employees or frequent contributors. They include Bob Beckel, Alan Colmes, Juan Williams, Kirsten Powers, Geraldo Rivera, Dennis Kucinich and Mara Liasson.
The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
