    How many appointed know convicted Felons or had regular visits with know anti-American radicals that bombed Federal Buildings and killed people?

    How many openly self confessed Communists have other appointed?

    How many people ahve others appointed that never were approved by the Senate?

    When you look at the facts with no spin just straight up look at the truth the picture comed into focus, and it begs that question: Whet in the hell is his end game?

    Obama's the one doing it.

    The GOP will ignore the will of the people and force the public to live as they demand...

    Obama's the one doing it.

    So my question is, where are the "liberals" that spend post after post telling us about the above threats... where are you when it's your guy doing it?

    Are those things untrue? Is the GOP actually for big business? Didn't Bush actually start an illegal war, with GOP support? And doesn't the GOP like to be in people's bedrooms?

    Now, this doesn't mean the democrats are immune from criticism. This issue here for example, which is not in your list, is deserving of criticism, just as Bush's Brownie was.

    And of the two, Obama is a better choice for many than Bush And better than McCain. Perhaps the answer is we need to pay more attention early on and make sure we get good candidates to run. Frankly, I'd still choose Obama over either McCain or Bush. I'd choose him over Romney, who I'd choose over Palin and Bachmann. So while we want perfect leaders, at the end of the day we still have to choose between people.

    So, what I'm getting at if you don't like what people are saying about the GOP, either prove it isn't true, or lobby for your party to change.

    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.

    The question in Washington is never "right or wrong," it's "Republican or Democrat?"

    You need the other side to keep you honest. If there were no Democrats, who would tell you bad things about the Republicans? They're sure not going to do it themselves. The converse is also true.

    Next time you're wondering where the Liberal outrage at Obama is, ask yourself where the Conservative outrage was during the Bush years.
