    All too commmon. Sadly.

    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.

    If people were actually informed, they wouldn't support either party. Both parties are dragging the country in the wrong direction.

    Well, there isn't much different in the two parties, really. And while there may be something to the lessor of two evils, paying attention would mean treating both parties with more contempt and not being as partisan as too many are.

    I have dated a lot of atheists. It doesn't mean my kids are going to be atheist.

    Not sure if there is any link with that to the theme of this thread. What I have tried to say is that Obama's rather unusual background and clear reluctance to discuss most of it has surely brought on a lot of the wilder speculations.
