    Gary Becker, right-wing economist and winner of the 1992 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences, makes his case for Barack Obama's time travel powers.

    Now, I'm sure you're asking, why would this require the President to have a time machine? Because the fall in business investment started in 2007, two years before Obama took office, and bottomed out in early 2009.

    Obama does have a time machine--:lol: Obama tried to build a bridge back to the 1930's--FDR era.

    It appears that our Harvard graduate--community organizer--most intellectual President EVER didn't know that:

    What took thousands of men with shovels to complete---now can be done with a couple of heavy equipment operators. What didn't require much engineering and design in the 1930's now require years of engineering and design before the 1st shovel goes in the ground.

    Last week Obama stating--UH--Those "shovel ready projects--weren't as shovel ready as we thought they were."

    Don't forget how Obama's time traveling cause the CRA (passed in 1977) to cause the real estate meltdown in 2007, too.

    The magical thinking of this boards right wing partisans is something to behold, isn't it?

    Wasn't Obama a Senator who voted for some of the anti business bills that were passed in 2007? Or do you live in an alternate reality where Obama was not the junior Senator from Illinois?

    What a bunch of sophistry.

    Obama Made Things Worse.

    That's the point.

    You wouldn't know a fact if you sat on one, "counselor".
    The point of Becker's piece is that investment has sucked since Obama took office. It has not recovered largely because of Obama's anti business tax and regulate policies, all laid out.
    Or do you think 9% unemployment is just inevitable?
