Austan Goolsbee is the chairman of President Obama's Council of Economic Advisors. He is the Robert P Gwinn Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago, Booth School of Business (currently on leave while he works for the president). He is a centrist and primarily focuses on human behavior as it relates to economics.
I can't think of a more concise and perfect explanation of President Obama's accomplishments in pulling us from the brink of disaster. Maybe it's his voice that aides in this...very deep and manly...hence the man crush. It's almost as if he's going to go and kick the crap out of someone after he's done with this briefing.
So, will this demonstration of numbers, facts, and policies be enough to convince my commenters that President Obama pulled us out of the ditch? Probably not. I anxiously await the remarks from people who have less than one percent of the knowledge and experience in economics juxtaposed with Mr. Goolsbee's presentation.
Remember, naysayers, it is alright to admit when you are wrong.
