    Thank you! Why can't liberals get over the war? We ended our combat mission there several months ago. It has noting to do with our economy and politics now, get over it. And regardless, Iraq is much better off than it was before we went in there. And don't give me that typical lib rhetoric about how it used our "tax dollars". Nope, try again. We borrowed the money so you can't use that one either.

    Besides a huge contribution to the debt?

    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 I note a little sarcasm here? There there is McCain 2012 with an alias November 2010?

    You do realize borrowed money has to be paid back with interest.

    Unless of course it is Obama spending, 3 trillion added to the debt was of course necessary spending, right?

    Yep, that's what liberals don't understand. The difference between necessary spending and fiscal irresponsibility. The Iraq war was necessary to free the Iraqi people who were under the tyrannical regime of Saddam Hussein. Dems, instead spend money on Medicaid and housing services for poor Americans who should be self reliant instead of relying on my tax dollars to improve their lives.

    And BTW, sarcasm? I mean everything I say. After reading through post on this forum it looks like sarcasm is a liberal tactic when they are confronted with opposing facts. I joined recently because I'm trying to get a feel for how the elections are going to turn out.

    Excuse me, but a war of choice, not of need, doesn't add up to neccessary spending. And just so you know, you post would work real well as sarcasm.

    There are a couple of basic problems with your post, there were many reasons for going into Iraq including the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 and then 22 reasons listed in the Iraq Resolution of October 2002 that was passed 76-23 by a Democrat controlled Senate.

    As for Medicaid that is a state funded program, not a Federally funded program, that would me Medicare and that is funded by deductions in your paycheck. It isn't the role of the Federal Govt. to provide housing in local communities, that is a state, local, and personal responsibility. There is absolutely nothing preventing you from using your money to help those truly in need if only allowed to keep more of it and instead of forced spending of which most go to the Administrative costs of the Federal Govt.

    What liberals/progressives have a problem with is the "will of the people" to keep more of their own money and the passion they have for picking the winners and losers. All that so called compassionate rhetoric that has done nothing but create dependence and that is what continues to drive progressives today, the desire for power.

    Huge? By whose standards? The Iraq war cost according to the Treasury around 700 billion dollars in almost 8 years. On a yearly basis that would be about 100 billion a year. The last two years we had over trillion dollar deficits so 100 billion is 10% of the trillion dollar deficits and 700 billion of a 13.5 trillion debt isn't what you think it is. 9/11 cost more than the cost of the 8 year Iraq War
