Like Bush had to, he has to look like he's doing something and hope that the economy improves. If it does, he'll take credit. And people like you openned the door for him to do this by suggesting he can fix it. You can't balme him for not fixing it and then njot give him credit when it improves. So, your side has to hope it won't improve.

    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.

    Do you sometimes feel your banging you head against a hollow log?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Republicans keep shooting them down...
    Because of pork and deficit spending attached to them. Obama and the dems passed paygo. When will they stop breaking their own law and follow the pay go plan?

    Wrong.. When most of stimulus money goes to help democrats and unions we see what Obama is doing. Obama does not care about the country only those that help him.

    So you deny the truth. Stimulus went to Chicago road work and the union went on strike for more money. $35 was not enough

    Not the only place it went, and road work is part of rebuilding infastructure. You're doing partisan gymnastics and that makes you not someone to take seriously.

    Ben Stien? Now we can count on him to have the definitive word.
