The Years of Shame (Giuliani, Bush Shamefully Cashed In on the Horror)[UNBELIEVABLE!!]
The New York Times ^ | September 11, 2011 | Paul Krugman

Posted on 09/11/2011 7:04:13 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Is it just me, or are the 9/11 commemorations oddly subdued?

Actually, I don’t think it’s me, and it’s not really that odd.

What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful. Te atrocity should have been a unifying event, but instead it became a wedge issue. Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons....

Has Asshat Krugman ever gotten anything right? What an embarrassment to humanity.

This bigoted moronic jackass should be fired. This is possibly the stupidest bit of writing this idiot has ever penned.

Wow, what a douche. He will lose all but his most rabid followers on this one. “Jumping the Shark” understates how off base he is here.

And of course he won’t allow comments to be posted for “obvious” reasons.

Jerk.

Yet Krugman sees no irony in his feeble attempt to cash in by trying to sound relevant and superior enough to render “judgement”... More proof that “liberalism” is a mental disorder.

Yes, these reporters are truly the result of what happens when we lower education standards.

Just be thankful that none of the mental midgets are allowed anywhere near technical calculations.

Then he shows his cowardice when he states he will not allow anyone to make comments on this depiscable commentary for obvious reasons.

If this is the "Conscience of a Liberal," then I agree that they have a mental disease.

The sole “obvious” reason for not allowing comments is because Krugman is a coward. He is also a hateful little guttersnipe who has otherwise made a career of being absolutely wrong about absolutely everything, while blaming the world for not properly conforming to his academic fantasies.

I see. He writes a dastardly hit piece, and then refuses to allow any response.

He’s not only a douche, but a cowardly one as well.

And just who is he to stand in judgement, as he, himself “cashes in”?

This is possibly the stupidest bit of writing this idiot has ever penned.

I think it puts him in running for a Nobel Peace prize, to accompany his Economics prize. It would put him on par with Jimmah Carter, and the terrorist Arafat. But, I think Robert Mugabe and Kim Jong-Il might be ahead of Krugman in line for that prestigious award.

Paul Krugman is a commie and a coward. But that’s one-and-the-same as we all know. He posts his blog, then doesn’t allow comments “For obvious reasons”. Typical Krugman. A little man of no worth, no insight, no integrity. A blowhard fool who’s 15 minutes of dubious fame ran out a long time ago.

The only reason for a post like this on 9/11’s 10th anniversary is to stir up debate about Krugman. It’s all about him; not 9/11, not Giuliani, not GWB, not anyone associated with the day. It’s Krugman front and center. What a joke this fool has become.

I just remarked to my husband - “Can you believe how the demoncrats hijacked the 9/11 event and turned it into a camapaign issue to put themselves in office? Michael Moore in concert with other devils convinced a generation of kids and many of their parents that their own government orchestrated the tragedy.” Then I logged on to Free Republic to see this. There is no low to the demoncrats. Just when you thought they’ve sunk as low as they can go - they go even lower.

Coward.

Naive.

Imbecile.

I can guarantee he’s never stood post. Never had to physically defend something with his own life.

He’s a typical liberal POS coward who hides behind a computer screen and pontificates about the life he knows between mid town and north Manhattan.

I was at Ground Zero less than 12 hours after the planes hit.

I stood post on Canal Street for 12 hours straight then walked down to the rubble and helped where I could - we all did.

This POS dispicable worm no doubt hid in the closet of his home sniveling as to why, “why do they hate us”...

I can’t even read the whole thing.

RLTW.

Paul,

Your body pores ooze toxic fluids.
Lepers avoid you.
Cockroaches are attracted to you.
Maggots live in your mouth.
Vultures nest on your window sill.
Leaches cling to your tongue.
The clothes that you wear conceal festering sores.
The Taliban adore you.
You hate America.
Move to Somalia, Syria, Yemen, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba...I will pay for your one-way ticket.
