    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.

    Just like it is a fact that OBama has added 3 trillion to the debt and 4 million more unemployed. It is further a fact that we are still in Iraq, Afghanistan, and GITMO is still open. Congratulations, you bought the Obama lies.

    Obama laid off people? When?

    And you support just pulling out of both Afghanistan and Iraq today, no gradual draw down? Glad to hear it. Now call your congress person as I have (with the except of no gradual drawdown, as I think that would be reckless and dangerous), and stand up for that conviction.

    LOL, just quoting Obama promises which don't seem to mean much to you. Stimulus was supposed to cap unemployment at 8%, Obama promised to close GITMO, Obama promised to get out of Iraq and Afghanistan, Obama promised to get Bin Laden. Yes, Obama lies and the economy dies as does liberalism.

    funny how some people didn't seem to mind when iraq turned out to be something less than flowers and candy. and you gave him 7 years, although the mission was accomplished quite some time ago, no?

    so the recovery is taking longer than expected, so what? we ARE recovering. it took awhile for us to get into this position, it's going to take awhile to get out. as for the rest of it? meh.....he's a politician.

    Are we recovering? Where are the jobs? Over one year after the recession ended there are more unemployed today on a month to month basis than last year. 3 trillion has been added to the debt so tell me how things are getting better and at what cost?

    No, promises don't mean much to me. Nor do I believe any president controls the economy. But you didn't answer questions:

    Obama laid off people? When?

    Boo, you really have lost it. When you get it back and are able to recognize reality I will be here. Until then it serves no purpose to point out facts to you. Only the truly naive ignore the affect the President's economic policy has on, who would have thought it, the economy. No President controls the economy? Guess that is only true when a Democrat is in office because all I hear here is how Bush drove the car into the ditch and destroyed the economy. As usual liberals like you want it both ways.

    Pay attention and answer the person you're talking to. Not others. Show me what Obama did to add to the unemployed. Did he lay people off? Forced employers to lay people off? If you believe government is the answer, show me how.

    Obama has passed health policies that are bad for our country including restrictions on private health insurance companies from prohibiting sick little children from receiving health insurance under "preexisting conditions", prohibiting health insurance companies from dropping Americans from their policies if they receive life threatening diseases like cancer, prohibiting credit card companies from raising our interest rates without letting us know, and putting regulations back into the mortgage loan business that "supposedly" crippled our economy. All of these things are bad for Americans and have done nothing to improve our livelihoods.
