Paul Krugman has evolved into a wonky, condescending douchebag


From his very own column here:

In other words, it may have sounded as if Mr. Trump was doing something substantive by intervening with Carrier, but he wasn’t. This was fake policy — a show intended to impress the rubes, not to achieve real results.

The same goes for the hyping of Ford’s decision to add 700 jobs in Michigan — or for that matter, Mr. Trump’s fact-challenged denunciation of General Motors for manufacturing the Chevy Cruze in Mexico (that factory mainly serves foreign markets, not the U.S.).

Considering how many jobs have been shipped overseas I guess it’s never occurred to the brilliant Krugman that people, in the beginning, are happy to see anybody save any American jobs.  As in 1, as in any, as in stop the bleeding.

I think it’s preferable to call someone an asshole or a fascist rather than a rube.  Insulting other people’s intelligence is not a solid long term political strategy, especially for Krugman who shilled hard for Clinton and got creamed.

That wasn’t so bright rube Krugman.

  1. Krugman doesn’t give a shit about “a solid long term political strategy.” What he cares about is sound economic policy and accurate reporting about economic policy. There is nothing at all inaccurate about Krugman’s column – neither the bit about economic policy nor the bit about accurate economic policy. He may well be a “wonky condescending douchebag” but that doesn’t change the fact that he’s also correct.

    • I don’t think you read what I wrote very carefully. One, he’s not correct in that he doesn’t understand that people want change with regard to outsourcing and at this point a change of direction is adequate.

      And to be honest with you I don’t think supporting a candidate like Hillary Clinton who with her husband were fine with hollowing out America’s manufacturing base qualifies as correct. Because now he’s just a chirping bitch without their person in the White House.

      I did not vote for Trump as he is a piece of shit in many ways, but you have to give him credit for seeing the political opportunity presented to him by Democrats and Republicans who outsourced millions of jobs and created all those voters who went out and voted for him.

      Trump is doing a better job of delivering for the people who voted for him than Obama ever did. In conclusion go to CNBC and see how many corporate executives are working to bring jobs back to the U.S. and then tell me that’s not a sound economic policy. You have to start somewhere and I think this will end up with a significant amount of jobs created in this country which will, unfortunately, get him re-elected.
