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.
Judge a man by his actions.
The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
Its ridiculous to accuse George Bush, Barack Obama, or hell Bill clinton, as being the worst or the best President ever. Its just too short of a time period to accurately do such. You may suggest that you think in the end they will, or that you think history will end up judging it in one way or another, but to answer it as some kind of unquestionable absolute is poor foolishness.
Which is why I'm shocked, utterly shocked, that some of the biggest hyper partisan party/ideology line hacks we have on the entire site are doing just that. Shocked I tell you.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
