    As the president doesn't control the economy, why would I listen to a prediction from any president? They've all been wrong often. And unless you want the government to hire everyone, the government doesn't control people going back to work.

    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.

    Didn't say it did. I said they don't create jobs with it. Please keep listen to the actual claims being made.

    When I say President that includes his Administration and if you don't think his Administration controls the economic agenda you really need to go back to school. The govt. sets the policy which determines behavior and economic activity. For someone who "doesn't listen" you sure spout the same talking points as this empty suit and his unqualified Administration.

    the problem is that liberals often don't give the real reasons for what motivates them. so they blather on and on about how tax hikes are supposed to help the economy when in reality the real motivation is envy and appealing to class warfare to buy votes or to salve the hurt ego of those who think they are more valuable than what the market thinks

    They don't? Where do businesses get capital to grow and expand? Where does that money come from and who performs the construction activities for that growth?

    From people buying their product. They don't get it from tax cuts.

    So, you can read minds and only you know the REAL reasons? You and Glenn Beck that is. I'm sorry, but that is the weakest **** I've ever had the misfortune to read.

    None of them control the economy. They just don't. Again, unless you want the government to fix everything by hiring everyone, you're barking up the wrong tree.

    Really? So banks have nothing to do with lending money for expansion and growth? This really has to be an act on your part?
