I don't know any other politician who has enough economic savy to fix a large recession in only 18 months (the recession ended in July 2009).
    You fooled me for a second. I was about to have heart attack.

    That said, not sure you should use his username this way. Seems too much like trolling to me. We'll see what the moderators think.

    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.

Then after Franklin Rains got done ripping us off, it collapsed and you liberals want to blame it on the repubs...What a load of crap....
    Do you have any hard facts to blame Dem Presidents like Clinton and Carter for the current mess? Or are they to blame simply because they were there? I mean Carter's presidency ended in 1981 which is almost 30 years ago. How is he responsible for these problems?

    I think a McCain video spells it out the easiest.

    I have no desire for witch hunts or endless investigations.

    However in the case of these two that have been mentioned, they were brought up BEFORE this all happened and the DEMOCRATS chose to delay them. I can't blame republicans for simply continuing them when they were supposed to be continued.

    First, the "fairness doctrine", that isn't supported by even the Democrats in Congress, and isn't even mentioned except as a boogyman by the RW rant radio moguls, then outlawing "redlining" as the cause of the housing crash.

    The Community Reinvestment Act (or CRA, Pub.L. 95-128, title VIII of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1977, 91 Stat. 1147, 12 U.S.C. 2901 et seq.) is a United States federal law designed to encourage commercial banks and savings associations to meet the needs of borrowers in all segments of their communities, including low- and moderate-income neighborhoods.[1][2][3] Congress passed the Act in 1977 to reduce discriminatory credit practices against low-income neighborhoods, a practice known as redlining
    What a pile of malarky.

    And yet Obama discouraged investigations of the Bush Administration. No rewards for the righteous.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Funny the same can be said about liberals. Blamed Bush lately? Because youre leadership and Chosen One do everyday. Kind of makes one look foolish when talking about someone else when they have fault themselves.


    BTW, I stand corrected on the 6 years bit.
