Oh, goodness, I cannot stand that fool Paul Krugman. It amazes me how he keeps getting invited as a guest on Sunday morning media shows as if he has any credibility. The only credibility he has is the one built by his liberal buddies.
Liberals wouldn't know the "truth" if they tripped over it.
"You'd think they would be embarrassed to continue posting his lies."
Of course they're not embarrassed. Lies are what the NYSlimes does best.
Nope. They just keep on telling the same lie over and over until they actually believe it. That way they think they have the right to get nasty when you call them on it. It's getting old. It really is.
Do you mean the Paul Krugman who worked for ENRON at a mere $50,000 a year fee by attending TWO MEETINGS and didn't disclose it to his readers?!
Krugman worked on an advisory board for Enron throughout most of 1999 before resigning to take a job as a columnist.
Or this Paul Krugman?

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman says he believes the United States needs a "mega-Watergate" scandal to uncover a far-reaching right-wing conspiracy, going back forty years, to gain control of the U.S. government and roll back civil rights.
Krugman made the comments during a forum, "Books on Bush," at New York University Monday evening. While other authors present former Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal, former ambassador Joseph Wilson, and House of Bush, House of Saud author Craig Unger directed their fire at the Bush administration, Krugman told the crowd that the president is simply a front man for larger and more sinister forces.
"We probably make a mistake when we place too much emphasis on Bush the individual," said Krugman, who received a standing ovation when he was introduced. "This really isn't about Bush. Bush is the guy that the movement found to take them over the top. But it didn't start with him, and it won't end with him. What's going on in this country is that a radical movement...that had been building for several decades, finally found their moment and their man in Bush."
Krugman said he and other liberals had been "asleep" and unaware of the true dimensions of the danger during the years in which President Bill Clinton found himself facing a variety of scandal allegations. But Krugman said there is a "complete continuity" between today's politics and the "campaign of slander and innuendo" against Clinton. "There's complete continuity going back, really, I think but this is my next book you really need to go back to Goldwater. A lot of this has to do with civil rights, and the people who don't like them."
Krugman described the conspiracy as "the coalition between the malefactors of great wealth and the religious right." He offered no further details about who, precisely, is in the conspiracy but said that "substantial chunks of the media are part of this same movement."
"It's a movement that has been building," Krugman told the audience. "The one thing I think that you really have to say is that people on the left the position formerly known as the center people like myself have been asleep for a long time. We just didn't take it seriously. We sat through all the Clinton scandals and said oh, you know, there's probably some funny stuff going on there [and] didn't understand the extent to which this movement was being built."
Now, Krugman said, getting rid of George W. Bush is "necessary but not sufficient" to repair the damage done by the right. "The answer, I think, my great hope now, is that we need an enormous unearthing of the scandals that we know have taken place," Krugman said. "We need a mega-Watergate that rocks them back."
And the absentee votes from the military were never counted, and the Feds did nothing about it, even tho Fla. was under a Fed. Consent Order at the time.
An obvious insult to ferrets everywhere.
