    Lot of those moronic born again brain dead bible thumpers who didn't like the fact that Romney's version of Christianity didn't meet with theirs who thought they'd face hellfire and damnation if they voted are hopefully the ones losing their insurance

    With what was essentially Romney's plan. Something he was never going to change in the first place.

    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.

    What Romney Plan are you referring to?

    Are you still one of the Obamacare believers?

    A more interesting debate might be which President was worse than Obama and why. It seems clear at the is point that he has been the worst President in the last century but there may have been worse before that.

    Don't what you mean by believers, but ACA is close enough to Romney's view that it would not have changed. You'd just like it then.

    Romney said that Obamacare would be a mess and he was correct. Are you now trying to blame Obamacare on Romney?

    Any scapegoat will do, huh?

    There are others who some might consider worse. Be it on things they did OR media. You hear a lot about how Jimmy Carter was a bad President. Good man, just ineffective.

    As for Bill Clinton, you don't hear it a lot that he let bin Laden go and told the people who caught him that we don't want him, and to let him go - even though it was known that he tried to again attack failed targets.

    Lyndon Johnson - potential conspirator behind the assassination of Kennedy - Johnson was under some kind of investigation and Kennedy was likely going to replace Johnson on the 1964 ticket - but the truth behind that has mixed answers.

    Herbert Hoover - the Great Depression lasted during his entire 4 year Presidency.

    And every President before Lincoln who supported slavery. Andrew Johnson supported it too, but even more-so supported the Union.

    For modern presidents, I put him in the Reagan Category: way better than Carter and Bush 1&2 but not nearly as smooth, likable and a born leader like we saw in Clinton. Further back, he's not a dud like Nixon and Johnson, but he's no Ike or FDR. I'd say he's a bit like Kennedy: all show but very little go.
