They used a static model.

If by math you mean fantacy, I agree.

You might want to re read my post. I didn't say "all economists" meaning every economist out there.

I listed some names of economists that say govt intervention has prolonged the Obama's recession and back it up with actual facts. Then I wrote "All economists that...." When I said "all" I was referring specifically to the ones listed.

And people are laughing at me? LOLs. You should look at the article you listed. "What if this and what if that." LMFAO. What a tool.

Sorry, not true. Fun to believe I guess if you're the blindly believing type, but false

Ok, I've re-read your post. Now that you've explained I see the error is simply a poor command of proper sentence structure and/or writing skill.

"Here are four economists" etc, would have been more concise and conveyed the intent and meaning behind your statement.

Of course we're laughing, you're funny.

"For some math is fantasy"; Thank you for clarifying your position. I think; however, the rest of us will stick with the math.

Not to rain on your parade but this is just another opinion piece for the most part motivated by political need. MSNBC has even resorted to projecting how bad it would be if the Republicans had been in charge. There is no reason to debate who, what, where, when. Let's just concentrate on the ineptness of the current government and the extreme, need they and their blind followers have to speculate the negative rather than live on the own merits. That seems fair enough to me. If a honest person were to ponder this the outcome is obvious. The Democrats have done nothing of value to run on, thus stir up fear of what might have been if......

Pretty pathetic no matter which party's strategy it is.

The very same ones who didn't see the crash coming are the ones you are relying on? What's the theory behind that? Even a blind dog finds a bone? Keep betting on the Cubs, I'll bet on the Yankees.
