30. Now who's got a little shrine going?
Edited on Fri Jan-09-09 01:58 PM by boloboffin
I'm a Democrat. I voted for Obama three times here in Texas (primary, caucus, general). I earned the right to criticize him! :)

ETA: Although you'll probably respond before I can add this, I'm adding it. I think Obama is being clever as well, too clever by half. Maybe this is just a little public nudge to get Krugman out of a tendency to sit on the sidelines and armchair quarterback. Fine. I've only read the comment. I didn't see Obama deliver it on video yet, and body language means a lot.

But I wish Obama had also said that if Krugman shows why something we're doing is a bad idea, we're going to stop doing it.
