    Nope, just greedy. The 2 percent they'd lose, $6-10 thousand, is more than enough to break ranks with the other Democrats.

    The way I heard it the Dems couldn't get enough votes, not one Rep vote as usual. so they had to shelve it.

    If the Dems had the balls, they'd openly blame the Reps on all the talk shows, and see how it plays out with the media.

    Playing Russian roulette worked for Clinton, and got him reelected.

    Obama is no Clinton. Plus, the media is the last thing that demo's are worried about having them in their pocket and all, nah, they are seeing the people wake up to their lies.

    I'm beginning to think that you are satire. Like a liberal version of Stephen Colbert's character, except he is funny. You are trying to play yourself off as being serious. It's dishonest and is harming the country. I can't believe someone would seriously attempt to defend the president by talking about "those who play with words".

    Seriously, it's not funny.

    I agree with everything you wrote except one thing....... Colbert is not funny.

    I appreciate your attempt at humor, but the point stands. Those words do not carry the meaning you and Beck and those like him attach to them. They were all spoken in a context that Beck and his ilk ignore.

    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.

    In another thread, Crosscheck was tell us that Black Americans can see through the motives of White America (i.e., the Republican Party). I wonder what these black Americans are seeing?
