    The CBO spokesman said it was in the bill quite a bit before that since they used the numbers to do their calculations.

    Was that before or after he was called to the Oval Office for a friendly chat with 10 of Obama's kindest thugs, I mean advisors?

    More conspiracy theories?

    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.

    Why do you have such a low opinion on the morals of others? Would you lie if you where told to?

    No. I'm saying that treating unequal things as if they are equal is bias in itself. You may well be asking Them to be biased. The split is almost never 50/50 at any given time.

    Never said it was...I think at this point in time liberals tend to lie way more than do conservatives. Also liberals seem to be more easily led to their beliefs today.

    Me? Perish the thought Red. I do however live in the real world, and see much in my travels.

    Yes, you think that. But what you think isn't equal to what you can prove. When faced with a lie, the question is not who is lying, but whether it is a lie or not. If it is a lie, it's a lie. Whining about bias is pointless. Accuracy is always a better judge of any source.

    Oh, j, about Elmendorf. Speaking to the president is not equal to being threatened. Throwing out the thug thing without any evidence is kind of silly. Just saying . . .

    Very clever how you failed to address the first point about Elmendorf....And to think of it your mish mash of words here really addresses nothing.....Sorry Boo, I am not going on one of your obtuse word playing games today.


    Stay straight forward will you?
