Boy, do I get hate mail, Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman told "Off The Cuff." Theres a lot of people who really, really hate what I say. I get a lot of stuff calling me a communist, a liar,and actually, various misspellings.
And thats just the family-friendly version.
Krugman is a professor ofEconomicsand International Affairs at Princeton University. Hes the author or co-author of seven books, but its his work as an op-ed columnist for the New York Times that draws the ire of his correspondents. Hes been criticized Left, and Right. To some, hes a liberal polemicist and East Coast elitist; to others, he's a doomsayer whos been overly critical of the Obama administration.
It's shocking when you first encounter it. Its Oh my God, they hate me, he said. "I think that most people doing journalistic commentary stuff, they encounter that first wave of hate and they back down. I've been through that to the other side, where I actually almost enjoy it.

This worthless dirtball isn’t worth the effort of hate.
Anything at all for attention.
I guess that Mommy and Daddy didn’t pay enough attention to young Pauly.
He enjoys it because the brain damaged mf’er is too stupid to understand what they say.
Punk makes a smartassed remark just before the elevator door closes. Harry grabs him by the collar and says:
"Listen punk, you are dogsh*t and there is only three things which can happen to dogsh*t. It can dry up and blow away. It can get stepped on and squashed. It can get scrapped off the sidewalk and thrown into the trash. Which will it be with you?"
Quiz points go to the first one to name the specific Eastwood movie.
I guess, then, he’s never really gotten his chops busted up close, has he?
Hmmn? Maybe I will go out of my way to add to his pleasure! LOL
He enjoys it because the brain damaged mfer is too stupid to understand what they say.
Sending paul Krugman hate mail would be like trying to toilet train a dumb puppy with a learning disorder....
Or playing chess with a pigeon....
I love it when Clint delivers lines like that all of a sudden. They have more impact when they don’t seem scripted.
The Bridges of Madison County?
Paul Krugman is really smart. He won a third grade perfect attendance medal or something.
It was one of the Dirty Harry series as the scene took place in an elevator in the San Fransicko courthouse.
Paul “Look at Me!” Krugman’s parents must have paid very little attention to him as a child. Most well-adjusted individuals outgrow such annoying behavior at age 4.
Who is Paul Krugman? I am widely read and knowledgeable but I don’t know who he is. He must not be all that important.
(Hope he sees this.)
NAH!.. he’s just WRONG 99% of the time..
100% in some days.. Pauly is not too smart..
He should, that’s all the mail he gets.
This was inserted in a desperate effort to make it sound as though Krugman isn't a run-of-the-mill bootlicker for any left-wing Democrat, specifically Obama. I would guess that the criticism Krugman gets is roughly 99.9% conservative.
And accurate. He cherry-picks the numbers that support his left-wing thesis and then he massages the numbers.
Oh, by the way: Krugman has on occasion criticized Obama, but it’s criticism that claims Obama isn’t being sufficiently left-wing. For example, he claims that Obama’s “stimulus package” wasn’t big enough.
