Paul Krugman might be crazy, or he might be, well, actually he is crazy!!

Via the Other McCain

Delusional partisan cheerleading:

Several times in recent weeks I’ve found myself in conversations with liberals who shake their heads sadly and express their disappointment with President Obama. Why? I suspect that they’re being influenced, often without realizing it, by the prevailing media narrative.
The truth is that these days much of the commentary you see on the Obama administration — and a lot of the reporting too — emphasizes the negative: the contrast between the extravagant hopes of 2008 and the prosaic realities of political trench warfare, the troubles at the Department of Veterans Affairs, the mess in Iraq, and so on. The accepted thing, it seems, is to portray Mr. Obama as floundering, his presidency as troubled if not failed.
But this is all wrong. You should judge leaders by their achievements, not their press, and in terms of policy substance Mr. Obama is having a seriously good year. In fact, there’s a very good chance that 2014 will go down in the record books as one of those years when America took a major turn in the right direction.

Oh true, we should judge any president by achievements, and frankly, everything Obama has achieved is an abject failure and bad, very bad for this nation. The economy is worse, foreign policy? Don’t get me started on the stupidity and incompetence this administration has shown. The border? ObamaCare? The war on coal? The delaying the Keystone Pipeline? The blatant disregard for the rule of law? The IRS being used as a political weapon? How about the fact that this president and his part have done more to divide and embitter Americans against their fellow Americans? How about the despicable rhetoric pitting rich against everyone else? How about Fast & Furious? Benghazi? Good grief Krugman is either delusional or he simply loves the fact that this president is doing great harm to our nation. I will put money on that second option.

That Mr. G Guy: Is it me or is Paul Krugman crazier than a rabid raccoon on crack and moonshine?

I believe the medical term for Paul Krugman is Bat Shit Krazy!

Paul Krugman is excoriating Republicans again in his latest column because of their obstinate repeals of Obamacare, the popular euphemism used for the PPACA:

In the short run the point is that Republican leaders are about to reap the whirlwind, because they haven’t had the courage to tell the base that Obamacare is here to stay, that the sequester is in fact intolerable, and that in general they have at least for now lost the war over the shape of American society. As a result, we’re looking at many drama-filled months, with a high probability of government shutdowns and even debt defaults.

Over the longer run the point is that one of America’s two major political parties has basically gone off the deep end; policy content aside, a sane party doesn’t hold dozens of votes declaring its intention to repeal a law that everyone knows will stay on the books regardless. And since that party continues to hold substantial blocking power, we are looking at a country that’s increasingly ungovernable.

The trouble is that it’s hard to give this issue anything like the amount of coverage it deserves on substantive grounds without repeating oneself. So I do try to mix it up. But neither you nor I should forget that the madness of the GOP is the central issue of our time.

The problem is, the majority of Americans don’t want Obamacare and the more that comes out about it, the more Americans are against it. Even some of the people who voted for it don’t want it. The IRS, who is supposed to enforce it, doesn’t want it either.

There is crazy, then there is Krugman Krazy!

Paul Krugman, Laureate of the Sveriges Riksban...

Republicans opposing a law no one wants? How dare they! 

Newsweek prints something that actually makes sense, Paul Krugman contracts Offendeditis!

 

Ed posted about the Newsweek “Hit the Road Barack” cover earlier today. Well, it seems that Newsweek has caused Paul Krugman to go off the deep end, as H/T I’m 41

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman took to his blog Sunday excoriating the article in a piece he called “Unethical Commentary, Newsweek Edition“:

There are multiple errors and misrepresentations in Niall Ferguson’s cover story in Newsweek — I guess they don’t do fact-checking — but this is the one that jumped out at me. Ferguson says:

The president pledged that health-care reform would not add a cent to the deficit. But the CBO and the Joint Committee on Taxation now estimate that the insurance-coverage provisions of the ACA will have a net cost of close to $1.2 trillion over the 2012–22 period.

Readers are no doubt meant to interpret this as saying that CBO found that the Act will increase the deficit. But anyone who actually read, or even skimmed, the CBO report (pdf) knows that it found that the ACA would reduce, not increase, the deficit — because the insurance subsidies were fully paid for.

Nice try Krugman, but Noel Sheppard points out that, you LIED!

Please notice that the CBO report Krugman linked to is from March 30, 2011.

What he failed to inform his readers is the CBO revised these numbers in a March 13, 2012, report finding “the insurance coverage provisions of the ACA will have a net cost of just under $1.1 trillion over the 2012–2021 period.”

The new numbers predict that Obamacare will explode the deficit by $1,083 billion.

 

Would you trust Paul Krugman to mow your lawn?

Frankly, I would not trust Krugman to brush his teeth without adult supervision frankly. He is, truly, one of the stupidest human beings on this, or any other planet. Smitty, does not rate Krugman very high on the intellect scale either. And Smitty ponders the train wreck that would result from Krugman being named Fed Chair

Admittedly, newspapers are headed down the extinction trail on our current national course, along with liberty. So in that sense, why not hand over the Federal Reserve to a boob like Kruge?”

Love this quote from Krugman

[Quantitative Easing] is very uncertain in its effect, but the [Federal Reserve] should be doing more of that.”

So, we do not know what its effects will be, but do more of it anyway? Good Freaking Grief how does this guy get on TV?

Video at the link. Tell me Krugman does not remind you of that drunk guy bugging you at happy hour? You know, the guy that just will not shut up? The guy who jabbers on incoherently about his job, politics, and so on. Yep, that is Krugman.

Why we MUST stand up to ideological bullies

I ran across this piece about the power of Liberal intimidation by one of the greatest thinkers in America, Dennis Prager. Before I give you a taste of Prager’s column allow me to specify that Liberal, I might call it Leftist intimidation, is not new, nor does it come in only one form. Stacy McCain and others have been dealing with Leftist thugs like Neal Rauhauser and Brett Kimberlin, and their supporters for weeks now. The vile tactics of these miscreants have been well documented by this blog, and by many others. Their tactics might differ, but the aim is the same as the aim of many other Leftists who engage in character assassination by accusing anyone who disagrees with their Leftist ideals of racism, or sexism, or Homophobia, or a host of other “isms” and “phobias”. The end goal is to silence any Conservative who speaks up.

Sadly, too many “Conservatives” are cowed by these bullies. These folks who cave are cowards and fools. Their weakness in the knees does not buy them any slack from the Left of course. The next time they speak up, they will be vilified again, most likely in even harsher terms. And their cowardice makes easier targets of all of us. This is why we all, every one of us, every Conservative mus vow NEVER to cave in to these Neo-Marxist thugs. They do not seek reconciliation with us. They do not seek common ground, they seek our silence, period! 

We MUST stand up to them! WE MUST fight them. We MUST NEVER allow them to silence us. We MUST see them as they see us. And that is as the enemy! We might not see political differences and debate as war, or as a winner-take-all game, but the Left does! And the price of losing this “game”? Our very liberty!

Now that I have flapped my gums, allow Dennis Prager to lay out the case as only he can.

Given how many more Americans define themselves as conservative rather than as liberal, let alone than as left, how does one explain the success of left-wing policies?

One answer is the appeal of entitlements and a desire to be taken care of. It takes a strong-willed citizen to vote against receiving free benefits. But an even greater explanation is the saturation of Western society by left-wing hate directed at the right. The left’s demonization, personal vilification, and mockery of its opponents have been the most powerful tools in the left-wing arsenal for a century.

Since Stalin labeled Leon Trotsky — the man who was the father of Russian Bolshevism! — a “fascist,” the Left has labeled its ideological opponents evil. And when you control nearly all of the news media and schools, that labeling works.

The liberal media even succeeded in blaming the right wing for the assassination of President John F. Kennedy even though his assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, was a pro-Soviet, pro-Castro communist. Similarly, just one day after a deranged man, Jared Loughner, attempted to kill Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and murdered six people in the process, The New York Times columnist Paul Krugman wrote that it was right-wing hate that had provoked Loughner: “It’s the saturation of our political discourse — and especially our airwaves — with eliminationist rhetoric that lies behind the rising tide of violence. Where’s that toxic rhetoric coming from? Let’s not make a false pretense of balance: it’s coming, overwhelmingly, from the right. . . .”

Krugman made it all up. But what matters to most of those who speak for the left is not truth. It is destroying the good name of its opponents. That is the modus operandi of the left.

It works.

Go read it all. Prager lays this intimidation at the feet of Chief Justice John Roberts’ cowardly ruling on Obamacare, as he should. As I said, and as Prager opines, these people are bullies, and all I need to know about bullies I learned in 7th grade. A bully picked on me, tried to pick fights with me. I wanted no part of fighting, I just wanted to go to school and be left alone. Yet, my peaceful demeanor failed to impress this kid. Then, one day, my temper, which was much longer at the age of 12 than it is today, snapped. He pushed me, and I beat the snot out of him. leaving him crying, and with a bloody nose and  split lips. Want to take a guess how many times he picked on me after that? Yep! ZERO! Now, I am not suggesting resorting to fists to best the Leftist bullies. But I am suggesting we never give an inch to them, EVER!

Lib Genius Paul Krugman Gives Netroots Speech… To Empty Room

Lib Genius Paul Krugman Gives Netroots Speech… To Empty Room – Gateway Pundit

Bummer…

Liberal genius and NY Times propagandist, Paul Krugman, was slated to speak today at Netroots 2012. Unfortunately, he wasn’t quite the draw they were hoping for.

The room was empty.

It was a rough week for the NY Times crank…

Today’s event followed the public smackdown by the Estonian president on Twitter earlier in the week.
