Paul Krugman Unleashes More Stupid

There used to be a sense of shame in this country. We’ve lost that to a large degree. People can be totally wrong, flat out lie and even when the evidence stacks up against them, they just continue to promote their partisan hackery. Shamelessly. I offer the “economist”, Paul Krugman as evidence. Here’s the latest from this jackwagon:

Basically the Republicans said we’ll blow up the world economy unless you give us exactly what we want, and the President said OK. That’s what happened. . . . We’re having a debate in Washington which is all about, “we’re going to make this economy worse, but are we going to make it worse on 90 percent of the Republican’s terms or 100 percent of the Republican’s terms?” And the answer is 100 percent.

and this:

“The worst thing you can do in these circumstances is slash government spending, since that will depress the economy even further,” he wrote in the Times Sunday, with a sentiment echoed during his Sunday show appearance.

Uh, Krugey, there aren’t any big spending cuts in the satan sandwich and virtually none at all in the first year. Socialists like you talked the country into spending $850 billion we didn’t have. The report card has come in and you FAIL. The economy is stalled again and your answer is print more money.

How should Americans respond? Like this.

    How can you say there are not any big cuts in this plan, TG? I did some number crunching.

    In 2007 (The year Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid first got control of the budget and decided to put our fiscal house in order after months of complaining and campaigning on the crazy levels of Republican spending, waste, and deficits) we spent $2,729B.

    Now that the Rs are ripping the guts out of our poverty prevention and education programs, they are spending approximately $3,819B and possibly going to cut as much as $20B from that.

    That means that we will only be spending $1,070B (yes, that is one trillion 70 billion – a 40% increase) MORE than they spent four short years ago.

    Heartless bastages.

    I would say that Krugman gives Nobel prize winners a bad name, but given some other recent Nobel winners, it’s about what you should expect.

    It’s gotta really suck being as stupid as Krugman. He hasn’t gotten a single thing right since walking across the stage without tripping to get the degree his daddy bought him.

    I posted this thought somewhere before but I’ll reiterate it as on point here. I remember when it first became apparent in Spring 2009 that Obama’s destructornauts were going to go with a very heavy up the middle run of Keynesian “injection” run, to the cost of hundreds of billions of “stimulus” $$$, I remember thinking: “this will be tough for we conservatives, it will probably goose the economy & employment rate for maybe a quarter or two at best, but not really fix the underlying longterm problems.” We would then have a tough sell as conservatives explaining to the unconvinced how , in essence, have faith Friedman still is right and Keynes is still was wrong. Well now. I predict there are PhD dissertations yet to be written for the next 25 years as to why Keynesianism this time has so completely utterly, stupendously *failed* in its *biggest use in history*. And its crashing failure this time has been shocking even to its detractors– it didn’t even generate a tepid, fake recovery – just hundreds of billions of dollars down some Union made,wrong sector, non-multiplier sinkhole!! The point is, I only had two semesters of freshman-level Economics in college, and yet bumpkin that I am I understood what they mmisguidedly were doing & that they’ve failed beyond salvage now. Game over. Come 2012. But Krugman still talks as though he doesn’t understand what has happened here, and that we should have faith it will just take another trillion$$. Let’s see now, Krugman with Yale and MIT degrees got the Nobel Prize and I got a degree from a state university. Hmmmm…?
