Paul Krugman Blog: Uh-oh, Itís Morning in America

Nobody does hissy fits like Karl Rove; the master of hardball, dirty-trick politics is constantly outraged, outraged, at his opponentsí underhanded tactics. And the latest hissy-target is the Chrysler ad during the Super Bowl, starring Clint Eastwood.

Jon Cohn gets it: itís actually a double-edged problem for the Republicans. They hate any reminder that they were dead wrong on the auto bailout; and they hate any thought that the Democrats are becoming the party of optimism. Hey, only Republicans are allowed to celebrate American success!

And behind the yelling lies, almost surely, a growing sense of panic:

1. I don't recall the last time the Republics had a genuine success to celebrate.

 

There were certainly none during the past three (R) malAdministrations.

Iran-Contra, globalization, deregulation, GHWBush* was little more than a placeholder and left the economy in a recession, The Contract on America, GW* was a total disaster for the economy, diplomacy and national security.

They celebrate winning, at any cost.

3. Krugman, like Frank Rich is 100% correct

 

Obama is going to win the biggest landslide and the dems retake the house and hold the senate.
