His new column doesn't help that any.
Today’s G.O.P. is, after all, very much a minority party. It retains some limited ability to obstruct the Democrats, but has no ability to make or even significantly shape policy.Ok I can buy that, the Democrats have a majority in the House and almost Filibuster proof majority in the Senate.
Then Krugster goes in to his GOP bashing.
Beyond that, Republicans have become embarrassing to watch. And it doesn’t feel right to make fun of crazy people.Actually it doesn't feel right to make fun of Democrats, but that's subjective. Let's see, the Dems have the power to do what they want but can't get:
- Card Check
- Cap and Trade
- Health Care
But of course since the GOP doesn't have the ability to shape policy, that doesn't stop Paul from making fun of them. But then to say that the only policy Debates are coming from the Democrats? What the hell is he smoking?
There is no debate among the Dems, if your not with them, then your a racist....just see the whole Sen Roland Burris debacle.
Actually the only debate at the Obama Administration seems to be how many of Bush's policies can we keep in place without everyone knowing about it.
Oh wait Republican's are "crazy people."
So Obama is dumber than a "crazy" person, for keeping all those "crazy" policies in place....
Yeah some policy debate.
I have a big problem with Krugman's arrogant stance against the Tea Party movement.
These parties — antitaxation demonstrations that are supposed to evoke the memory of the Boston Tea Party and the American Revolution — have been the subject of considerable mockery, and rightly so.The only mockery comes from the Left. Spending 13 min on MSNBC to "Teabagging Puns." Yeah that's real mature from the Left.
What do you expect from the "War is lost" party, to the now let's escalate the war in Afghanistan, and ask for more money, while hoping no one calls out the rank hypocrisy of the whole situation because they voted against Bush doing the same thing.
So what does that say about Obama, who is keeping all of Bush's "crazy" policies in place?
Yeah no need to answer...
I think Paul is upset because the Left can't organize demonstrations of their own anymore.
He is probably sad because no one actually agrees with his own call for nationalization. And rightly so, that would be socialistic. So Krugman tries to deflect the charge of socialism.
But the charge of socialism is being thrown around only because “liberal” doesn’t seem to carry the punch it used to.Didn't Obama say something about "spreading the wealth around?" Oh I'm sure little details like that are too petty for Krugman to worry about.
Then Krugman tries to smear the Tea Party movement using flat out lies.
Then there are the claims made at some recent tea-party events that Mr. Obama wasn’t born in America, which follow on earlier claims that he is a secret Muslim.Yeah claims...no need to quote a source at all...just throw out insinuations and lies to make a point. Oh wait, my bad....yeah there were people saying those things, they work for ACORN.
Don't let the facts get in your diatribe Mr. Krugman. No one is seriously listening to you anyway.
