    He's the Democrat's Reagan.
    I could agree with this, though for reasons I'll never understood, Reagan is seen as a god by many, despite being thoroughly mediocre.

    And it did. Though I don't think they believed him. Many just overlooked his record and clung to business acumen. Of course, the country isn't really a business. But few really understand that.

    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.

    I think many Americans are tired of both parties.

    Well, Republicans have convinced themselves that Reagan was a great president, so anything is possible with them.

    Reagan is another ideological president that replaced another ideological president: Jimmy Carter, who replaced another president: Tricky Dick Nixon.

    The moral of this story? How the current administration performs greatly determines if the same political party stays in the White House, or is sent packing.

    Will another ideological president be able to dismantle all of BO's ideological social initiatives?

    If I may presume, tired of all the lying and ideology... IMO, ideology, mainly.

    fify.

    And conservatives, as a group, have never been influential in national elections, even though they scream pretty loud with their radio/TV broadcasts.

    Yes, both of those things among others, like wasteful spending, of which both parties are guilty. I can't really say which bothers me the most.

    The debt is increasing daily. If that's the case, how is spending going down? "If you exclude health care costs in ten years it will blah blah blah".
