    It might be. Though I suspect we'd see less answers and more blaming.

    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.

    No interest in blame, a lot of inerest in answers.

    I can understand your bringing Bush's so called "compassionate conservatism" into play, but it certainly wasn't responsible for the collapse. it didn't help at all, but if I had to guess, I would say that the CRA, and the pressure that banks were under to write those bad loans from more demo's than reps, had more to do with it.

    That's a good place to be. Any idea how to get more there?

    And how did the democrat led house and congress fare debt and economy-wise with majorities in both in 2007, 2008, and control, of the house, senate AND White house in 2009 and 2010? What has been the rate of employment prior to their taking over and since?

    It will be interesting to see how far to the middle his NEW budget will be. And how many specifics are in the budget for HOW to achieve certain cuts.

    Yeah right. Obama caused all our problems. Everything was great until he became president.

    Better than what? This president or the last president?
    Do you really think anyone could have fixed the mess created last decade?
