    Looks to me that most of his supporters are already using the drug. Sounds like you really have your priorities straight.

You don't think that Congress created the stimulus and Obamacare without a lot of input from the Obama Administration?
    But wait... you said this:

    I thought the President had very little power over the economy. Yet now you are saying that the President has the biggest impact. If that is the case, then it would seem to be that it was Bush who caused all of our economic problems.

    In charge of what? The recession began in late 2007 and the banking crisis was 2008, who was in charge of Congress then? Who signed the repeal of Glass-Steagall?

    The point is that Republican had control of the WH and both houses of congress, they could have done anything they wanted to do.

    No, that's actually no what I was referring. I was asking you whether you believe that Congress has more to say/act in regards to the economy than the budget.

    And it's not a particularly slow night. I just noticed your hypocrisy on this issue and thought I'd jump in.
