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.

"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
Don't people have the right to freedom of speech? It's obvious that you can't match Obama to Hitler, but to stay consistent an non hypocritical. What about all the attacks calling Bush the devil/Hitler/anything evil they could pull out of their butts? Maybe now that many on the left are irritated with conservatives linking Obama to Hitler, they will learn a lesson and not do the same to politicians that they happen to not agree with. There are many Hitlers in politics, yet none to my knowledge have murdered millions, were genocidal racists, or tried to takeover an entire continent.

Tired of elections being between the lesser of two evils.When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser. -Socrates
The thing is tasteless, and fearmongeing. I hated when the Left did it too bush, and I will hate it when anyone uses Godwin Law for each other sides.
One of you will end up here next!
Has there been a president since the end of World War II who wasn't compared to Hitler?
I just wish people would use something new instead of Hitler. It's not even annoying anymore, it's just old. Whenever Hitler comes up the first thing I think is that people need to diversify their knowledge of history, instead of only knowing about the one big world event of the 20th century.
