Re: Geithner In Over His Head At Treasury

Of course, Trump is bankrupt again, for what, the third time. Donald Trump is very good at using other peoples money to make himself look good, then bailing when the going gets rough. Not the best example :) Trump would be perfect in Washington given his personal examples. :lol: :twisted: :shock: :...

Re: 2024 Primary

Agreed, 2022 has to happen first to see how things could shake out for 2024. Heck, Trump's not a lock to even live that long. 2024 is still a ways off. If I'm not mistaken he wouldn't be the first former head-of-State to run for office from behind bars - didn't someone from Italy already do that?

Of course there are a lot of factors which can shed some light on NY NJ question.

My problem isn't with the information and arguments that JSO gives. I think they're valid.

There are two sides to this coin and JSO's bias limits his analysis and conclusions, he only...

So your entire analysis comes down to timing. Perfect. He just got lucky. His entire analysis comes down to whatever way he has to frame it so that he can justify not giving Trump credit.

Re: Some final Trump and Obama economy numbers

I thought about doing unemployment rate but that is to some extent a function of job creation. I think the fair way to do it is to look at how much the unemployment rate declined during Trump's first three years before COVID vs. how much it declined during the last three years under Obama. The over...
