    I attended the same university ayers teaches at. Does that mean i have ties to him? All obama did was set on a board with him? If you are part of the education system in chicago you know who ayers is. No way around that.

    If Obama exhibited racist behavior, or supported legislation or policy that was racist, then his connection to Ayers would be...illuminating. Otherwise it's entirely peripheral and no more relevant than your own connection to your embarrassing, racist grandmother who's set in her ways and just "telling it like it is."

    Oh gosh, I guess it happened already. Boy, was I incorrect. I guess Newt didn't really take the money for lobbying, right?
    (Is this poll still working? I hope so.)

    Exactly. He's been around awhile and has plenty of skeltons to pull out. I think he hopes for short memories and the always reliable (for the faithful) the media is picking me ruse.

    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.

    But the lobbying stuff for $1,600,000 is a recent activity. Oh, but it must be made up by the liberal news, right?

    Well, that will always be the claim. Republcians, if we listen to the faithful here, have no personal responsibility for their actions. It's always the medias fault.

    I have no doubt it won't take long for the media to make him their favorite taget... I would say they start targeting him sometime this week and by next Monday, after the Sunday morning political show, he will be at the top of their list of republicans to trash.
    No need for a "new" scandal...all they have to do is show his past and what he did. I am not even talking about his sick wife either.
    Obama is guaranteed a win in 2012. If you dont agree with me, name who will beat him and why.

    I heard it was for "consultancy". I wonder what his $1,600,000 advice to Freddie Mac was, and if they followed it?

    Newt Gingrich in my opinion is by far the most convincing, informed, rational, reasonable & pragmatic candidate the republicans have. It’s too bad that he screws it up with his personal life.

    I don't think there will be a new one and voted that way.
    Oh, I have to note that I was incorrect in my post here. Too bad.
