    Care to provide us with a few examples?

    please do point it out when it happens. such rude behavior should be found objectionable to anyone or any party


    i do note you used the expression "republican candidate" rather than the direct counterpart, "republican president"; is that an indication you have already written off 2012?

    Well, we have some time to go before it gets down and dirty. Um, well maybe not seeing as how Obama already showed how nasty he plans to be. But in any case unless the GOP gets its **** together, and puts up someone strong, with a clear message, and plan, then yes, unfortunately we may go down this election cycle.

    the problem isn't the president being interrupted by some little nobody and letting it get to him so he loses a little presidential composure

    no, the trouble is the president doesn't have any answers, interrupted or not

    for jobs, for housing, for gasoline, for afghanistan, libya, iran, the middle east...

    for the budget mess whoever's-to-blame got us in

    for entitlements and the inevitable major restructuring physics will impose upon us if we don't act

    all he's about anymore is invest, invest, invest

    and class division

    let him talk

    leadership, anyone?

    Ahhhh... The time honored tradition of parsing someones words, rather than interpreting their meaning. Doubling down on the dishonesty I see...

    You know, if you even resembled an honest person rather than the rage filled partisan hack your portraying yourself to be on this thread, you might have taken my original quote, rather than using the post where I paraphrased myself.

    What I originally said was:

    I know, I know... Parsing my words and pretending that your post was actually relevant to what I actually said, was the only way you could justify your off-topic attack on Bush and quell your rage.

    So, care to triple down and show us the true depths of your dishonesty, by again trying to justify your attacks? Or are you going to surprise me by just walking away and showing that your partisan dishonesty actually does have limits?

    I do know this:

    If a republican is cut off by any reporter while he/she is trying to speak and then tells that reporter, "Next time let me finish my thoughts", I won't compare him/her to Al Capone and I won't hint that he/she is a bitch for requesting such a normal thing to request.

    Nor should anyone. We really should want complete answers.

    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.
