    No, the implication is that Obama gave this for favors. How? Did he sign off on GE personally? Was there a procedure? Who made the call? is it possible GE benfitted without being treated special? Agian, it is not unreasonable to ask. Can anyone answer?

    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.

    Please explain to us why anyone should have to prove those implications, when the current administration said it does not have to prove the implications it made regarding the Chamber of Commerce and it's finances. Same thing.

    No, not really the same thing. The administration is speaking of a legal point. I'm speaking to a logic point. If you can't answer, just say so.

    Doesn't matter... legal vs. logic... it is indeed the same thing... making accusations and failing utterly to back them up.

    I guess I should not be surprised you can't grasp the similarities.

    Does matter. And I'm not making any accusations, you are. I'm asking questions. Can you answer?

    I didn't say you were making accusations.. I said the administration was doing it. Feel free to continue your one man circle-jerk all you like, you've got nothing in this thread.

    But the administration isn't in this discussion, we are. And if the president is wrong, why do you think it justifies you being wrong here? I knw you really can't answer question, meaning you really can't fully support the claim, but I've seen more creative dodges.

    All the Chamber of Commerce has to do is open their books to show where their donations came from. Why doesn't the American people have a right to know where political donations are coming from?

    Does anyone here understand that GE is also a military contractor? That it gets far more money from military contracts then the 25 million from the stimulus

    If as the insinuation is that Obama gave GE 25 million to influence MSNBC and NBC news, imagine what GE is forcing NBC and MSNBC to report on regarding military issues. Why MSNBC must be one of the most militaristic supporters of the media
