    Like I said, attacking education.

    I hold a Masters.

    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.

    drove truck, served in the military, worked retail, waited tables, cooked, partnered in an antique shop, and worked construction

    didn't spend your whole life cloistered in the halls of academia
    As Commander in Chief, if you had to make a momentous world changing foreign policy decision
    who would seek the counsel of?

    Very few do. That's one of a few mistakes those who attack education make.

    And a wise president would consult those who process knowledge, regardless of how they gained that knowledge.

    No one gives a hoot where you went to school or what grades you got.
    Results are all that matter.
    Ohbammer's results speak for themselves
    fail
    Fail
    FAIL!
    hah guess it really doesn't matter what is in his sealed college transcripts anymore eh?

    and what is this fixation with attacking education?

    Answer the bloody question: would you consult a professor or a Colonel with combat experience?

    No one asked you to care what school he went to. Only criticized for attacking education.
