Watching CNN tonight there was a 15 minute discussion about how the next president needs to do something with the economy. The discussion was based on the notion that the president has something to do with the economy. All the panelists kept saying was that the candidates need to tell Americans what they are going to do and what is important to Americans is the question of what each candidate will do for the economy. Ahhhhh… bad news. The president has little if any direct effect on the economy. He can cause short term macro changes, but the results historically have always either been disastrous or policies never materialized into changes until long after he left officde. Will someone from what should be an educated press please tell folks this! No wonder why this country is so stupid!!!
WAIT!!! One journalist did!
