    Re: A Clarifying Week

    I really like Christie. I wish he would run, I think he would make a great president. I admire the fact that he's blunt and doesn't put up with the lies and crap that the media flings at him. We need a president like that.

    Re: A Clarifying Week

    The past week has done an enormous amount to illuminate the contours of the struggle for fiscal sanity in America. It is increasingly clear that one party is committed to denying the reality of the challenges we face and wants instead to bury its head in the ground and pretend all is well, and that another party is slowly coming to terms with the fact that it will have to lead the way if we are to avert a disastrous debt crisis.
    Where was the outrage as the other party doubled the national debt? The debt crisis didn't begin in Jan, 2009. Claiming that one party is more fiscally responsible than the other is completely ridiculous and one would have to be naive to believe the GOP will save us.

    yes, I got that the first time.... just thought I would point out that it is a very different proposition in running for governor and running for president.

    It sure is..... Not sure of your point, but the lack of explaination and depth, give me a clue as to what it might be.


    I suggest you look at how well Christie works with Democrats all while promoting his agenda. He and corey booker are a fine example of a state and its largest city, getting the peoples business done.

    You don't like him because of your union affiliation.... As we see in the rest of the country, this union power is losing its steam.

This will reduce economic growth and is in no way desirable.

    You have another party that is also committed to denying the fact that entitlement spending is the real problem, but at least isn't pursuing economically destructive policies like cutting discretionary spending.

    ...and let's not forget that this whole debate is taking place just weeks after both parties voted to extend tax cuts for the rich for two more years, with a $3.9 trillion impact on the national debt over the course of the next ten years.
    arguments about the flaws in claiming that public spending is good for the economy... Republicans are planning to take up entitlements in their current budget. you gonna change your tune when they do?

    I don't think any serious economist of ANY political ideology disputes this point. Are you disputing it?

    Depends what exactly they propose. I'm not inherently opposed to it, no.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    of course I am. and i am certainly aware of multiple economic schools that point out the economic harm done by government spending.

    well, what are you looking for?
