Shocking!
    look up being governor of Texas. It's a weak position and not like being governor any place else.

    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.

    The blind partisanship of Right wingers is clearly visible when they vote north of 50% supporting the idea that Bush was a good president. Laughable.

    even better is the reactionary Bush sucks from Liberals. I judge presidents on several subjects. THe judges they appoint is the most important. In that area, Bush was a good president.

    not just Bush. McCain had a shot at my vote. Palin took care of that.

    So you found Crazy Joe Biden a better choice than Palin? I Saw Palin as needing more experience. I saw Biden as a guy who had maxed out what little talent he had with no chance of improving a lifetime of mediocrity

    Hands down a better choice. Palin lacked instincts, knowledge, and basic intelligence. She made crazy Biden look like a genius.

    I voted no, but this current fellow is making George look like the best thing since buttered bread.

    if the president had died within say a month or two of taking office, you might have a point. after a year, not so much. Biden's a moron. A law professor I had in law school taught at syracuse right after his Supreme Court clerkship for a couple years. he used to joke Biden graduated 69th in a class of 67

    Biden had been in politics so long he could pretend he knew what he was talking about

    And still hands down better than Palin. Worse choice than even Dan Quayle.
