    a much bigger target---obama's wall street reg reform, his #2 political accomplishment (after the collapse of cap and trade), which just like his stimulus he can't talk about anymore

    Dodd-Frank tensions headline Senate hearing - WPIX

    this reg reform is a monster, completely inchoate, yet huge, like some nascent galaxy

    it exempts fannie and fred, we all know

    and it exempts small banks from obama's oft bragged about credit card redo, which allowance bernanke testifies is unworkable

    exactly which kinda non-bank entities are to be covered by the dodd-frank (LOL!) reform bill are still being made up as we go along

    when's the last time you heard obama talk about his reg reform?

    when's the last time he said the s-word?

    why isn't he talking about his pretty 9.0% jobs report for january (with the 36,000 positions created)?

    did you notice that gibbs' new replacement today screwed up, actually said the s-word

    the professional left, roger simon's journolisters, whom gibbs once suggested should all be drug tested, sure did

    It contributed to the loss of a bunch of jobs at the company I work for also. Rather then try to mess with the reforms, they decided to sell the business to another company.

    Dodd-Frank regulations are a major reason that the bank portion of the business was sold and a lot of people will be losing their jobs once the deal passes regulator's reviews. That portion of the business was well-funded and providing a nice profit (in other words, the children were really playing in the sun). Its not at all dishonest. But whatever - I know nothing bad can ever happen when Obama is involved. It's all lollipops and unicorns.

    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.

    Not really. How about if someone told me something. Subjective or objective?

    The physical act of them telling you is objective.

    Exactly. So, we know objectively Bush was told. Would you also agree that we have the physical act of what he said?

    Not sure what you're talking about here.
    I wasn't really paying attention to what was said here, I just wanted to put in my quip about math being able to describe anything physical in our world and its objectivity.

    Look, we can objectively assess that Bush recieved certain information. We can objectively say he said and made certain arguments. We have his words. And we can make a objective assessment on this. Objective only means without emotion or bias: not influenced by personal feelings, interpretations, or prejudice; based on facts; unbiased: an objective opinion.
