Paul Krugman has an epiphany

Since Scott Brown’s victory, we have witnessed a number of attitude adjustments from the Democrats in Congress. Now we are beginning to see the light bulb come on for some of Obama’s biggest Kool Aid drinkers in the media.

Paul Krugman from the New York Times has now realized that Obama “wasn’t the one we’ve been waiting for”: 
Maybe House Democrats can pull this out, even with a gaping hole in White House leadership. Barney Frank seems to have thought better of his initial defeatism. But I have to say, I’m pretty close to giving up on Mr. Obama, who seems determined to confirm every doubt I and others ever had about whether he was ready to fight for what his supporters believed in.
Well, it has been pretty damn evident that Obama was breaking promises all last year.  The only reason the light bulb has now come on for Krugman is because healthcare is crashing and burning.

You will recall back in October, old Paul Krugman got caught on tape spilling the beans about the real reason behind healthcare reform (it’s all about single payer, folks).  So, if Krugman can lie about the real reasons behind healthcare reform, then he should not mind Obama lying to him about Hope and Change.

Read Krugman’s full piece, it’s a little bit of an eye opener.

It is nice that the Dems have a little respect for the American People.

It seems like these Dems like dishing out lies but they can't handle the truth. It seems as though the left's demagoguery and idolatry of Obama has lost its luster.

Sadly, that's not much of an epiphany....Krugman's been on Obama's case for "not being liberal ENOUGH" for some time.

He wrote a scathing Newsweek attack awhile back, titled, "Barack Obama is Wrong."

Krugman is not merely a Keynesian, like Carter, Nixon, the Bush's and Obama, he's a devotee of the Command Economy.

You put Krugman and Frank on the very same page....I wish you hadn't, as I'm running out of Pepto Bismo.
