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.
