As you are well aware, Rick, the TARP program and the auto industry bailouts were created during my misadministration. That means: before Obama. Not his programs. The article which you link to from McArdle is not source material, why not follow the link in it to the actual source where Paul Krugman writes: "From the beginning, I argued that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, a k a the Obama stimulus plan, was too small."
Really, there is no way that an honest person can write that "there are many economists who agree with Paul Krugman that Obama saved the world," so no apologies here for questioning your intelligence or ability to be truthful. The truth is that you are incapable of describing liberal or Democratic policies or thought accurately.Comment Posted By Richard Bruce Cheney On 16.02.2010 @ 07:31
"The point is that we’re doing a 1937 — or actually worse, since unemployment had in fact fallen dramatically before FDR made his big mistake. Fiscal support for the economy will be pulled away with the economy having barely begun to recover."
"I’m with Simon Johnson here: how is it possible, at this late date, for Obama to be this clueless?"
Just some quotes from Paul Krugman's blog on the same day that you write: Yes, there are many economists who agree with Paul Krugman that Obama saved the world.
I fail to see how it is that you claim that Paul Krugman thinks that Obama saved the world. He has criticized Obama repeatedly.
Are you ignorant or do you simply not wish to be truthful?
Krugman has consistently defended the stim bill, TARP, and the auto bailout as essential to keeping the US from falling into a catastrophic depression.

"You know, Paul(Rick), Reagan proved deficits don't matter."
Keep toting that water Rick.
That's a pretty obscure comment - even coming from a nitwit like you.
What exactly is your criticism? That I don't care about deficits? That the government should indeed write a tax code that attempts to coerce people into acting or behaving a certain way?
You're too stupid to address any of the points I made, too dumb to argue intelligently about anything I've written. So you leave some obscure comment and fail to engage because you're too ashamed that the issues and arguments are beyond your capacity to respond.
That's ok - I'm sure you can find some site worthy of your intellect and acumen. Try Romper Room.

Don’t sit there and tell me that the only reason Bush wanted to reform Social Security by privatizing some of it was due to “ideological opposition” to the program.

And I am sitting.
And you are blindly partisan nincompoop.

Ah, yes, don't we all long for the days when W reigned. To get into a town hall meeting, you had to go to the local Republican organization to get ticket. Why, hell, if you were able to score a ticket and then showed up with a liberal bumper sticker on your car, you got kicked out. Those were some awfully peaceful town hall meetings. No shouting. No one was angry.Comment Posted By Richard Bruce Cheney On 4.08.2009 @ 12:50
And seriously, what was to be angry about. Now, today, we have something to be really angry about: what rules do the hippies get to make concerning how the middleman between patients and doctors operates. Those stupid hippies 40 years ago making a spectacle about getting drafted to go shoot yellow men and getting all upset about body bags and brave injured Real American kids really made a mountain out of a molehill.

And when it was all done, you marched down Pennsylvania Ave. in a victory parade. Found what you were looking for, right Papa Ray?Comment Posted By Richard Bruce Cheney On 28.04.2009 @ 19:59
Hey Gayle: It's an embryo and then a fetus inside the mother's womb. It's an infant when it's born, which kind of means it's outside the mother's womb. Words do have meanings.Comment Posted By Richard Bruce Cheney On 28.04.2009 @ 14:13
What “conspiracy theories?”
Might be refering to this stuff.
Yeah - real mainstream. It’s what all the cool conservatives are reading.
Well it's what comes up on the first page of a google search for obama gun ban. I guess that's because all the kool kids are linking to it, or at least that's how most sane people understand google page ranks. Oh, and glad to see you think the NRA isn't mainstream. I sure thought it was when they presented that musket to me.Comment Posted By Richard Bruce Cheney On 6.04.2009 @ 20:38
