For Krugman – Up Is Down – Right Is Wrong

This is the world, according to Paul Krugman, as he shares with us his genius in his latest New York Times column, “Triumph of the Wrong“.

Anyone who knows of Krugman can guess from the title and its proximity to the elections that he is referring to the Republican drubbing of the Democrats last Tuesday. Oh – and that he’s not fond of the result.

He begins his learned piece with this gem: “… of another Republican Party sweep, politics determines who has the power, not who has the truth. Still, it’s not often that a party that is so wrong about so much does as well as Republicans did on Tuesday.”

I actually agree with this statement, save for replacing the “Republicans” with “Obama and his policies”.

He continues by saying: “So now is a good time to remember just how wrong the new rulers of Congress have been about, well, everything.”

He cites the “financial crisis of 200Keynesian-Economics8, brought on by runaway financial institutions” as being caused by the “sacred pursuit of profit”. Krugman claims that the Republicans “invented an imaginary history in which the government was somehow responsible.”

Well Paul, I hate to wrench open your myopic view of history, but it was entirely the fault of government, beginning with Carter administration. You may read all about it here.

Krugman is a big government spending Keynesian, and thus he pooh-poohs conservatives “predictions that deficit spending would lead to soaring interest rates, that easy money would lead to runaway inflation and debase the dollar.”

Look how long it took for the housing/banking sector to completely melt down – but meltdown it did. If we continue down the easy Fed money and artificially low interest rate path, everything you claim hasn’t happened, will happen. It has to, providing nothing changes.

Krugman then segues from the financial to the lefts capstone of stupidity – Climate Change. He says that, “these days the [Republican] party is dominated by climate denialists, and to some extent by conspiracy theorists who insist that the whole issue is a hoax concocted by a cabal of left-wing scientists.”

Personally, I know not a single “climate denialist”. Of course the climate changes, as it has for millennia. We on the right are just not as arrogant as you to think man can affect it. And that’s exactly what it is – arrogance.

He closes with a question that has haunted and will continue to haunt the modern day left. “But if Republicans have been so completely wrong about everything, why did voters give them such a big victory?”

His answer: The Republicans sabotaged our great president and the Democrats- blocking the path to prosperity for political gain.


The facts are, and facts can be scary things to the left, but the facts are that there has never been a single time in history, in any country, including ours, where government spending has led to prosperity, and there never will.

But we will never convince Krugman of this. His warped ideology trumps all.

  1. Excellent article.

    I thought for a long time that these people–Obama, Pelosi, all the media apologists and facilitators and water carriers–were evil.

    I finally came to a different conclusion: mostly they are no more nor less evil than their opposition (Reid beinge a notable exception). What they are is myopic, blinders-wearing, willfully ignorant and exceedingly arrogant bullies who have either never allowed any ideology but the farthest left any foothold in their thinking (like Obama) or they’ve embraced that always-failed agenda out of guilt and the opportunity to bully for small minds who wouldn’t be taken seriously otherwise. Do they really believe in their agenda and that it’s the best thing for America and the world? Yep, I think most of them have warped themselves into enough contortions that they do but they’re very careful to completely ignore any facts which prove how wrong they are.

    I could almost pity them if they weren’t responsible for so much pain, suffering and destruction.
