Oh c'mon Vich.....even the most partisan person has to admit that the latest mess is a result of GWB and the GOP.....the best you can argue is that you would do it better the next time...but to deny responsibility for screwing up the country is just plain and simply denial.
If you look at it that way it all happened after 2006 when the Dems took back both houses of congress
But Zyph....the GOP hasn't delivered zip since taking over Congress.....they haven't even tried to put anything forward. They were big on talk....but short on actions. How are they going to run on Boner's jobs jobs jobs...when they have offered no solutions?
Thats because Reid will not let anything through that the GOP passes in the house
It is since they have no influence in our politics or elections
Remember Reid only got elected this last time by going to the unions in Nevada
I thought he got elected because more people voted for him?
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.
