    Rush says he hasn't done one thing. But hey, he might be wrong. So, tell us how many you think there are and then provide a link to prove it and shut Rush up.

    He helped stop bleeding. He did keep a number of police officers, firefighters and teachers employed.

    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.

    which meant more private money was taken and given to his supporters and their unions which in turn meant more contributions to his campaign. In other words, he distributed my and other net tax payers' wealth to his own campaign

    He also helped keep the auto industry alive. Not single handledly, and Ford does deserve it's own praise. But he helped.
