    So "former" means he's wrong? .... ummmmm OK:rolleyes:
    A bad economy by one party always helps the other party. Hillary want's more Obama, Trump wants a new direction. The people want a new direction.

    No. It doesn't mean he's wrong. It also doesn't spell bad news for Hillary either necc.

    How is it actively "supporting Trump" when he is simply stating saying that the FOMC mistakes could cause votes for Trump? Especially considering that a few weeks ago he called Trump's "ideas" "borderline insane" and his proposals "ill-conceived and dangerous"? Since you seem to consider him to be very competent, this should make you (start) thinking?

    Edit:typo

    Word "former" in mind, it might not be bad or good for Trump. Who is the current one and how much better are things now compared to then?

    Well, if the peanut gallery people can play "guilt by association" no matter how unintentionally, then so can those actually running for office. Reality is, not all Trump supporters are racists, since even Robert Byrd's friends weren't racist when he was.

    Agreed. I see nothing in the OP that backs the claim that he "supports" Trump.

    He and Trump both agree on the mistakes of the Fed and Obama's economy. Supporting Trump is not just saying "Trump is right, I'll vote for Trump" it could be that current policies support Trump's victory and I didn't use the word "actively".

    Your post has a completely misleading title. You make it sound like this former Obama advisor is voting for Trump. Instead the article is something completely different. Have things become that desperate? I guess they have for you.

    Didn't take long to change the subject. "Hey look over there, something shinny, everyone look over there..."

    Then it would be more accurate to have said, "supports Trumps position (or claim)."

    Seems to be the case, hopefully we can get back on track and stay with the point if that can be done anymore. Doesn't seem like staying on point happens much, it's supposed to be a discussion about economics.

    First we have to accurately establish what the topic is.

    Yay! This election truly has driven conservatives around the bend. Here, I have some straws for you to grasp. Sadly, they're just out of reach, but maybe if you get just a little more shrill...

    This is unintelligible gibberish. Maybe that's your native language and English is your second language because you clearly didn't understand your OP linked article.

    Yes, it means it's over for Hillary. Does that make you feel better? Now you can ignore the rest of the sane comments that say otherwise and go partake again in whatever has resulted in your altered state of consciousness.

    No. This is completely incorrect.

    Supporting actually is saying "I'll vote for trump". Saying that some people might vote for trump because of certain policies in no way defines support.

    What a joke thread. Title doesn't match the article at all.

    There is NOTHING at all in his statement that says he supports Trump. This is some disingenuous mental gymnastic ********. Typical of your threads though and why you have zero credibility on here.

    Others have already said it, but-- your headline is incorrect. The article you cited said that he criticized the Fed. It never said that he supports Trump.

    And never corrects the thread titles and/or OPs when called on it. Sig ought to be 'Proudly wrong since forever.'

    It's because he has no words. We have all the best words, he has no words. His posts are low-energy. This I can tell you, believe me. Sad!
