How this guy has any credibility left, or a job for that matter, is beyond me.
I used to think “Nobel-Winning” actually meant something until Barack Obama and this guy won one.
“This guy” being “Economist” Paul Krugman…, and I use the term “economist” VERY loosely.
Krugman hasn’t been remotely close to being right about anything he’s said regarding the economy in like forever.
That’s probably because he’s more interested in spreading desired liberal propaganda economic narratives rather than actually analyzing our real economy.
Lee Moran, of the ever disgusting HuffPost, reports that, “Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman blasted the GOP [The Grand Old Party, or Republicans] for ‘the most cynical policy reversal of modern times,’ and warned their bold duplicity may help President Donald Trump secure a second term in office.”
Oh…, I can’t wait…, this should be interesting!
“Fake Newsers” are always more than happy to regurgitate other fake news propaganda…, no matter how hypocritical or idiotic it is.
“In his latest column for The New York Times [Guaranteeing the fakeness of it!], Krugman called out the ‘broader pattern of breathtaking fiscal hypocrisy, in which the G.O.P. went from insisting that federal debt posed an existential threat under Obama to complete indifference to budget deficits under Trump.’”
‘“This 180-degree turn is, as far as I can tell, the most cynical policy reversal of modern times,’ he argued.”
How dare anyone in politics change their mind, right Paul?!
“Krugman predicted ‘this cynicism may win Trump the election’ because ‘what’s driving the U.S. economy now is the very deficit spending Republicans pretended to be horrified by during the Obama years.’”
Ok…, wait…, this is too good!
What Mr. Krugman is saying is President Trump may win re-election because he and the republicans have changed their position on the federal deficit, and they have now chosen to ignore it like the democrats have been doing!
It’s not fair! You can’t be irresponsible about the federal deficit…, that’s our job!
In all fairness to President Trump, he didn’t run particularly on reducing the federal deficit, and he never pretended to be overly concerned about it.
And those fiscally conservative republicans are still out there…, they’re just not putting up much of a fight right now.
Being responsible with the nation’s money is just not a winning argument these days.
So, like they say…, “when in Rome, do as the Romans do,” and “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.”
Being responsible sucks!
