    Exactly. Thank you for bringing that up, actually. It is very ironic indeed.

    I guess more toward teh ****ed side. Our system discourages change to it.
    I may be wrong.

    I honestly don't think Trump is going to get the nomination...not unless the republicans get to a point where they decide they're just going to punt this election season. I just can't see a man with his history, his personality, and his polarizing nature managing to pull this off regardless of his wealth. Perhaps my own hopes are bleeding into it a bit, as I refuse to vote for Trump or Palin at this point.

    I don't think that the powers that be, aka party financiers, are endeared of Trump. If the money doesn't walk...who will back him come nomination time and risk upsetting the apple cart of "donations"?

    Is Trump even a Republican?
    I may be wrong.

    Like to drink coffee. Seems appropriate.

    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.

    If we can survive President Dumbass for two years, we could survive anything.

    GWB would be a godsend at this point.
