    benign neglect probably would have done more and would not have blown another 6 trillion dollars

Such actions win elections while diluting the greatness of this nation
    I couldn't agree more!

    Hoover really isn't applicable and Hoover's response was to jack up taxes as well

    by less than 2%, it was a slight rise in corporation tax. his primary response was to sit on his hands and let the economy slide into oblivion, like our modern economy was doing before 2009: How many things has Obama done that has made the economy better?-gdp_large-jpg

    actually, if you assume it took hoover 1929-1933 to wreck the economy, and roosevelt 1933-1945 to repair it, then it till take obama 24 years to repair bush's 8 years. not exactly a comforting thought, especially when obama himself is a far cry from an FDR level president.

    As you were addressing me, it has nothing to do with my argument, hence a strawman.

    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.

    We could play dueling lies. How do you think Romeny would hold up?

    no lie on the right comes close to the biggest whopper of them all

    that rich democrat elites really want the poor to be pulled out of poverty and freed from government dependence.
