    I think we all know what a recession is. We all recognize the recession that we're currently in.

    I disagree, on both counts.

    Of course you do! You're a Liberal and think that Obama is actually going to get re-elected.

    Just curious, what will be your response if he is re-elected?

    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.

    Well, a monkey shoudl ahve been able to beat Bush in the second term election, but democrats picked Kerry. Republicans could pick Bachmann, and then you'll have Obama for a second term. It could happen. What then?

    Bush didn't have 9% unemployment and rising, either. Bush didn't kill as many jobs as Obama. Bush isn't a Communist. Were you awake during the 2010 election?

    You best get used to the fact that Obama isn't getting re-elected. He only got 53% of the popular vote--not exactly a landslide. He's lost that lead, big time.

    Not yet. He was heading that way. And there are no communists here. Not Obama, not anyone. That kind of talk marks someone as a nutter, an unorignal nutter.

    But, we will see. We will see. It all depends on who republicans choose. Democrats are praying you guys pick Palin or Bachman.

    Why does Obama sound exactly like a Communist?

    We sure will...we will see Obama flying his ass out of town on Marine 1.

    get real! The Dems are just hoping that the Republicans don't get a filibuster proof majority.

    He doesn't. That sound is comng from your own ears.
