    As I showed economists disagreed with NBER and your statement

    Read what I said again, slowly.

    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.

    Read what you were responding to, slowly and then respond accordingly. The topic was the recession that Bush inherited, not the defict or the war.

    I did. I responded to Bush bringing on the recession. Date played no role in my response. Again, read slowly.

    Then tell me how Bush brought on the recession by just taking office in January 2001? What Bush economic plan was put into place March 1, 2001?

    Again, you should read slower. I never said he did. Start with the first sentence and read it slow, out loud. See if that helps.

    Again you jumped into a discussion that had nothing to do with the deficit or the wars, want to try again showing how partisan and non responsive you are?

    Offered clarification. Responded with my take. Read slower before you respond, but feel free to respond to anything I actually said.

    You never mentioned NBER, IMO, you tried to deceive which is nothing new.

    Nobody said he put an economic plan in place that caused the recession, since it would take 2 consecutive quarters to make a recession, it would be IMPOSSIBLE.
