running a business does not equal understanding macroeconomics

"I am a CPA, I know how to create jobs, I will cut the deficit"

"Why would you cut the deficit during a recession? That makes no sense"


I didn't even have a chance to discuss deleveraging, aggregate demand, or the marginal propensity to consume.

And on all of those things Fimian's position is superior to Connolly's.

OIC. Running a CPA firm is doing, and teaching and researching macroeconomics is not, hence ALL CPAs are to be believed over all economics professors. On all things related to economics. Interesting POV.

This is also a very efficient POV, since one does not even have to read what the economist has to say. He is disqualifed on economics precisely because he is an economist. I guess that would also explain the POV of climate change deniers.

The problem is that Obama shot the wad on deficit spending to help the economy and it failed. Connolly rubber stamped all of that. Obama/Connolly supported more spending on healthcare while doing nothing for programs that are going bankrupt like social security and medicare.

Obama's economists are heading for the hills and Connolly needs to join them.

Who knew that Connolly and Fimian could inspire such passion among their supporters (or maybe they don't really have supporters, just detractors)?

Here, over in Frank Wolf territory, we know re-election is a given. A few long-time Virginia residents will understand when I note that it's like the second coming of Joel T. Broyhill (in terms of incumbency if not political leanings)!

Wow, that must even be pre-Tom Davis (on the county council). I've never heard of Broyhill.

What was I thinking. Since I know nothing about him, I can discount anything that you have to say about him, and for me to to be right, and for you to be wrong. I'm learning.
