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.
Yep, that's true, and it's also true that many predictions are made over and over with many of the same 'team politics' mentality in place with those predicting...However, I for one hope that America is waking up to what progressive rule actually means in real terms....All the lies, all the blaming, all the subterfuge, and most importantly all of the hidden taxation, and loss of true liberty that goes on with a progressive thought process in place whether it be left, or right on the political spectrum.
It's like being a shift supervisor, you run things your way, nothing wrong with that, plus, having served for so long, longevity of service and seniority, if people don't like it, too bad. Some people are jealous.
Now THAT was a true loss of liberty. Did you support it? I didn't.
First, this is not about the Bush administration anymore, although, I will say that Bush was anything but a true conservative. In fact, I would call him a progressive centrist. And as for the patriot act, that was not done through dictate as I recall. Congress, both left and right passed that out of fear, and a great lack of intel, caused by the very same left that is now going about "stovepiping" intel today all over again. Oh, and I notice that Obama, has not only left these programs in place, but to some degree expanded on them. Do you support Obama Jack?
Look, I think you know that I supported Bush during his administration, but to say that "Booosh did it" and nothing at all to do with Congress, including the demo's there is as dishonest and partisan as Feinstein and her silly one sided, cherry picked report.
