That was the main difference between their answers regarding the role of government. Romney wants the government to get the hell out of the way so the private sector can create jobs. Obama says you can't trust the private sector and that you should trust him instead. Toss your EIB degree, for a Poli Sci 101 class. Seriously.

That's an awfully scary path to go down.
Any notion that our country is headed toward anything close to true central planning is apoplectic hyperole spewed by ignorant ideogues who don't actually understand what communism, socialism, and a true planned economy are, in real terms. Toss your EIB degree, go take a Poli Sci 101 class. Seriously.
