    Everyone with any sense knows Obama is just an orator. You could get a cardboard cut out with a tape recorder and it would pretty much be the same thing. He talks in circles

    Funny. People used to say the same thing about Reagan, and look how revered he is by republicans.

    However, I see little wrong with Obama's character. He does try to build consensus, a long lost art that we should learn again, but he knows torture is wrong, something Bush didn't, and this does speak to character. I woudl not claim any poitician is perfect. In fact, the job seems to rwequire that they have less than stellar character. But Obama ranks as better than what we've seen in the last couple (not saying much mind you).

    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.

    But you certainly must agree he's doing more than talking overseas?

    So did Carter, too bad it was with the wrong people.
