    Don't project j. Just a question. Were we or were we not right? Both sides can be dumb. Its not an attack like that. it's just an analysis. And one of which we do have some early results on.

    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.

    Most average Americans would never get asked if they were committing adultry.

    Gee...maybe we should ask the next Republican President if he jerks off to porn, how often, and to what types of porn then comb his computer records and see if he was lying.

    I'm not sure you're point here! You type something mockingly in your first couple of sentences then basically type something I agree with.

    You are right...most Presidents don't have to testify about infidelity in court...because no American gives a ****! Some of the most popular Presidents in US history were having affairs in office. So Congressional Republicans asked a question they should of never asked that has no bearing on Clinton's duty to the American people and...yes a man lied about an affair!

    So sure...yes he lied under oath...but as I mentioned in another post...I could easily compile a list of questions for any Republican President that would make him lie out of embarrassment/hiding a person fact.

    The fact is...Congressional Republicans acted like dicks and looked like dicks during this whole fiasco. In history books people will guffaw at how ****ing nutty Republicans were (assuming they become respectable agains).

    So wrong. You focus on the irrelevant, like other Presidents affairs, when the material fact is that he lied under oath. Other Presidents didn't. I am pretty sure it will be the perp, Clinton, that will be remembered as an abuser of women.

    Rubbish. First of all everybody lies during a deposition, since by its nature there's a dispute and the two sides disagree. If you sought perjury charges against every businessman who was deposed and said "I didn't breach that contract" half of America's CEOs would be in jail.

    Second, the deposition was so friggin' weird, with the inept judge allowing a freakish and incoherent definition of "sex" which went on for two pages. God only knows what the question meant. Clinton had no duty to make sense out of the garbled nonsense.

    The impeachment was pure politics, funded by rightwing loonies who set up the Paula Jones case with the help of an inept and biased judge.

    But I am disappointed that the Democrats didn't impeach Bush. The GOP needs to be punished.

    damn, such much silliness and hatred in a few sentences. One of these days we will really find out what causes this inane loathing of the GOP

    Yes...what he lied under oath about is irrelevant. We should all ignore context and only focus on the fact he lied under oath and was impeached.

    And the point of my post was to point out the false claim that: "Obama has also ignored the mid-1990s welfare-reform law, allowing states to strip the “work” out of workfare"


    You know, the statement you with which you ended your post?

    Ah, the "everbody does it" excuse, like a 3rd grader. Grow up.

    Oh, it was weird. Another great one. You should have called his lawyers before he got disbarred, I'm sure that would have saved him.

    What? Politics in Washington??? You've got to be kidding!

    But I am disappointed that the Democrats didn't impeach Bush. The GOP needs to be punished.
    You are like the republicans that want Obama impeached. Not happening. Please detail how Bush would have been impeached, because it was not possible.
