    She could run rings around your sorry ass, and that of any putz Dem in congress with her knowledge of the constitution. Fact for you, 'Nut.

    Too funny the same old pathetic card comes out every time you worthless bags of feces disagree with someone. Congrats on being a perfect cliche. Give yourself a hand.

    So then don't debate. I accept your concession. You were really only in here to derail from honest debate to start with.....

    They don't care, Mac. Their collective stupidity is always on display. They would rather try and win a pissing match than look at reality. Impressive, huh?

    So if it turns out that money was secretly spent on a bill that turns out to be ruled unconstitutional, and Obama ignored that ruling altogether.......

    What now?

    I must agree. It is sad. See I am one to believe that progressive thinking in politics infected both parties in the past hundred years, and when the repub progressives lost to demo they learned a lesson that we are now finding out was not learned by demo's, and that is that this radical spend happy crap is no longer in vogue. They will pay for lying.

    A February 2011 study published by the University of Minnesota’s Smart Politics news site, a part of the Hubert H. Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs, finds a significant bias on the part of PolitiFact in favor of statements made by Democrats
    : “That means a supermajority of falsehoods documented by PolitiFact over the last year – 76 percent – were attributed to Republicans, with just 22 percent of such statements coming from Democrats.”

    A glance at the most recent PolitiFact ratings by the Oregonian would definitely support findings of a pro-Democrat bias.

    The University of Minnesota’s Smart Politics study especially calls out “how statements are selected” by PolitiFact: “there remains a fundamental question of which statements (by which politicians) are targeted for analysis in the first place. A Smart Politics content analysis of more than 500 PolitiFact stories from January 2010 through January 2011 finds that current and former Republican officeholders have been assigned substantially harsher grades by the news organization than their Democratic counterparts.”

    As we all know, lies are always equal. Bob always lies as much Tom. reconizing difference is always a sign of bias.

    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.
