    The results speak for themselves and are contrary to the promises made by "your" President.

    That doesn't answer me. You think government is the answer, so tell me what the government should do to fix the problem.

    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.

    Haven't paid much attention over the last year, have you. Govt. isn't the answer, never has been the answer and in fact is the problem as evidenced by the results generated by Obama. It is the Obama agenda, thus the govt. that has generated these results. We have a private sector economy that is being destroyed by the big govt. Obama agenda and that is reality.

    Get real, the private sector was destroyed by George W. Bush, well BEFORE Obama became president. Deregulation of the big banks and Wall Street. And borrowing $ billions from China. Cheney once said deficits don't matter...

    Huh.. I work in the private sector and it's not destroyed or in rubble as you proclaim nor was it when Bush was around.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    You keep complaining that the government hasn't fix everything yet, and that is equal to a demand that government has to fix it. So, tell me how.

    LOL, yep, we hire Congressional Representatives to allow the President to act like a King and destroy the economy but only when a Republican is in the WH? Do you realize how foolish that argument is? Democrats controlled the Congress from 2007 to the Present and thus the legislative agenda. Bush couldn't do a thing without their support.

    Seems to me that the Obama cult needs a good lesson in civics. Think we are borrowing more or less from China now than during the Bush years? For someone that seems to care about deficits you totally ignore the Obama deficits and the fact that we still don't have a 2011 budget.

    Democrats had 4 years to improve the economy and the results are there for all to see. There is a reason that the Republicans are going to win in November and only the truly blind cannot see it.

    I have told you how, cut spending, get out of the way of private business and unleash the entreprenuerial spirit of the American people. Stop with the social engineering and massive expansion of govt.

    Stimulus creates jobs? Lol, the broken window fallacy is an integral part of folk economics.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24

    I argue for cutting spending, but nothing is preventing business from moving foward. nothing. Unless you count a lack of people spending. And no one is social engineering. Anywhere.

    Really, the government can't fix all probllems. You need to stop looking for them too.
