    Large Majority of Economists Agree Obama better...

    66% to 32% economists agree that Obama will be better for the economy then McSame. I know facts... they suck, but after the last 8 years who cares about facts. The truth hurts because there is no hiding from it.

    Wait I got it! These guys are terrorists, socialist, sexists.

    McCain has absolutely no clue how to handle this current financial crisis, first he's doesn't think there is a crisis, now flips and says there is one. 20 years of saying less regulation, yesterday flips and says need more. Even admits "I don't understand the economy that well" I think its time for him to create more lying campaign ads

    Haven't you heard that famous saying?

    "if you laid all the world's economists end-to-end, you wouldn't reach a conclusion."

    These same genius economists who support Obama, thought the housing markets would never collapse like they did...

    To qualify for the survey, potential respondents had to meet two tests:
    1.1. They had to confirm that they are members of the American Economic Association.
    2.
    2.2. They had to be citizens of the United States

    REALLY?

    Shhh...you're disturbing their narrow world view with facts. Fact is, neither economic plan offered is perfect, but Obama's would be less bad. But now economists can't be trusted.

    ONLY 27% of the economists were "very familiar" with McCains economic program. 63% are "somewhat" familiar.

    30% and 61% for Obama's program! Soundsd VERY informed!

    Reducing waste... M=46% O=18%
    Eliminate Estate Tax... M=23% )O=3%
    Social Security... M=63% O=43%

    If these were CEO's not economists, I'd listen more. Economists are threorists, academics. They can tell you how to fly plane but if they actually needed to take off and land they'd crash and die.

    It's the difference between practice and theory or intelligence and wisdom.

    Nobody thinks raising taxes is a good idea....I have the BEST idea. Leave Iraq unless someone else pays the bill AND cut spending on everything that doesn't qualify as a need. Need or want??? Wants get cut. Period.

    We manage our lives like that..the government should too.

    i'm not an economist but i do have a BA in economics. obama's plan is thought to be better b/c he favors more tax relief for working middle class families. and mccain's plan gives most cuts to the wealthy and corporations. although there are some posters on here who seemingly act like there apart of the top 1%, i suspect everyone who reads this will benefit more from obama than mcain.

    This is interesting to me and as a "BA in economics", I would like to get your take?
    Obama talks (at nauseam) about "tax-cuts for 95% of Americans". If I do my math, that would leave 5%, correct? Now the the Top 5% earners in America make $153,542 per year or more. At $153,542 not only are you not "wealthy", I would argue that "middle-class" is a stretch. If you make 150k, you take home about 80k. A house, a couple of cars, a tuition or 2, and you can`t even by gas. Does Obama even know what "wealthy" is? Does he know what "middle-class" is?

    This is the biggest issue I have with the Dems. Every time they mention tax-cuts, they can`t say it without saying "tax-cuts for the wealthy", which is a blatant lie. You can hate GWB for many reasons but, the tax-cuts were for EVERYBODY that pays taxes. McCain wants to make those tax-cuts for EVERYONE permanent.

    as to your point, i've only heard obama correctly characterize his tax cuts once, during his acceptance speech. his plan is said to cut taxes for 95% of working families, that's a far cry from 95% of people.

    Well, I would agree that you might not make it (because you can`t read). "TON of money", are you kidding??? I work 70 hours a week and my wife 35. Like I said, 2 tuitions equaling 45,000 dollars of after-tax money right off the top.

    A house, insurance, two (old) cars, and guess what? There`s nothing left.

    "Spolied"???? you are one dummy!

    You should be voting for Obama.

    Hi-ya` scauma. Still no negative GDP pal.

    Correct 95%, leaving 5% without a cut. And that 5% are working families down as low as $153,542, and that ain`t rich my friend.

    I'm sorry, Greg...but you used "trust" in the same context as a politician's campaign 'promise'.

    The point is, unfortunately, if that's your gross pay, and you live inside Rt 128, you are decidedly middle class. With that level of income you can probably afford a condo (again, inside 128). You drive 2 cars, 5-10 years old. You can afford 1 child. And 2 weeks of vacation per year. You are saving for retirement. But likely living more or less paycheck to paycheck. You probably can afford to eat out and get take out. You probably can afford some nice-ish clothes (you're not only shopping at target). And if the furnace blows up, you can probably afford the replacement, but re-doing your kitchen is out of the question.[/Quote]

    You are exactly correct. My parents were middle-class. Mother never worked, old station wagon, 2-weeks at the beach, paid cash for everything. Now, it takes 150k to do those same things, and that`s without the college bills. Put tuition in the mix and the vacation disappears, and the credit-cards get max-ed.

    But, according to Obama, that`s "wealthy"
    I need someone to define "middle-class" and "wealthy"?
    Man in the mountain posts like he`s a genius, he`s clearly voting for the inexperienced weirdo, so I assume he would know his policies,.........maybe he can tell us if we`re rich, middle class, or poor?

    Well, there's another person complaining about gas prices, in 9/08, but it doesn't sound like a "lib".There's got to be one, somewhere, complaining.

    Have you found one yet? I don't remember any "libs' complaining about gas prices under Bush. This could be because most "libs"  ( as well as other rationally thinking people) know gas prices are essentially all about supply and demand.
