    Personally, I think Moo absolutely should run for office. Of you look back into the history of herself and hubby, you will find that he was her project. She enticed him into politics and personally 'trained' him. Perhaps that is a lot of this problem. But bottom line is she tried to run this country by proxy and it hasn't worked out too well for her. If she wants to hold office, she should run for office and not find some puppet to do her bidding.

    Would I vote for her? No.

The talking points that start in the White House spin room can be heard all throughout this administration to the very word & down to the last drone who supports them. There intolerance for differing opinons can be seen for example in the Global warming debate where they tell us the Science is settled yet many Scientists & people alike disagree & have valid arguments. Some on the left are even calling punishment of anyone who doesnt tow the line. I think we are already seeing this in the Scientific community.

    Michelles Food Fascism is another example

    If these people continue to stay in power what little is left of our Constitutional Republic will soon be an Authoritarian State where we can only dream of what it use to be like to be free.

    In what universe is Michelle even qualified to be a Senator? or much less her husband being president?

    I swear - if Oprah were to run for Senate EVERY democrat would vote for her despite the fact the has no qualifications whatsoever to legislate.

    The only reason why Jesse Jackson lost his bid is because he was a proven racist with a shady past. If it wasn't for that - the guy could have been the first "truly black" president - and obviously would have destroyed the country in the process.

Nor did the Founders expect everybody to think alike or march in lockstep. The one thing they did agree on is that we would not be a country in which everybody had to think alike, believe alike, agree, conform, or else be punished. THAT is what we are losing because we have so many who no longer agree with a Constitution that allows people to be who and what they are with impunity so long as they respect the rights of others.
    That sounds good, but is bases on a few false assumptions: 1) that we've completely abandoned the Constitution (we haven't) and 2) that the founding fathers we have stayed stagnant for 200 years and not read what they wrote to fit the times. I think people get upset when they don't like the conclusions reached. Instead of following how it came about and making a better argument, they complain that it was somehow unfair. You, activist judges and the like.

    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.

    I don't find that to be true.

    Don't put me in the same mold with activist judges. I think the original Constitution as the Founders intended it was entirely fair for their time and the principles it embraced are timeless and work in all times. It is those principles that government has discarded in favor of the self-serving permanent professional political class that we have for a government today. You may think it is fine. I don't.

    No, we've allowed them to stay in office. Why pass the blame? We hold the power.

    Even the most staunch of conservatives has a tough time giving up a government benefit once he is receiving it, most especially when he has no guarantee he won't be the ONLY one giving up the benefit. The government now is providing some kind of government benefit targeted at more than 50% of the American people. And they have the ability to stack the votes to ensure that nobody is going to unseat them and the power to effectively destroy or marginalize most of those who try or who give them any major grief.

    I used to love people noting that W was only president due to his father (true) and yet bray about Hillary being qualified to be a senator.
