Paul Krugman on the tut-tutters

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/16/opinion/krugman-policy-and-the-personal.html?_r=1&partner=rssnyt&emc=rss

Article excerpt:

"The point is that talking about Mr. Romney’s personal history isn’t a diversion from substantive policy discussion. On the contrary, in a political and media environment strongly biased against substance, talking about Bain and offshore accounts is the only way to bring the real policy issues into focus. And we should applaud, not condemn, the Obama campaign for standing up to the tut-tutters. "

In other words, for the Bill Clintons, Cory Bookers, and possible plants and trolls, stuff it. Obama is not bringing a knife to a gunfight anymore.
