What a half-witted statement. When do we ever see "spontaneous outpourings" taking place in dozens of different locations? Of course there's some coordination, and only a nutcase would find anything to whine about or object to. I guess Krugman's only impressed with "spontaneous outpourings" of support such as ACORN and assorted other taxpayer financed, partisan political groups.
Yes, a "spontaneous outpouring" would be something for the left to really fear wouldn't it? So Krugman writes this piece that is basically wishful thinking.
He wishes we were being led by the nose, but he's in for a big surprise. There's anger out here, and that's what is spurring us to action.
The whole thing will backfire on the dems, and it will be because they tried to do too much too fast.
