Obama Calling Krugman Names

Who called Krugman a 'political rookie,' a hysterical 'fanatic' and an 'idealogue'? Obama for America (OFA) New Mexico State Director Ray Sandoval. Given his position, it's improbable Obama doesn't agree with this sentiment, as it was written, not spoken extemporaneously. As Brad De Long recently called for the elimination of the Republican party (ruh-roh!), I think liberal economists are demonstrating they aren't handling their frustrations well, making even their allies hate them. All those inferior students growing up and making policy is driving them crazy.

I too think our politicians are inadequate, but I don't want them to listen to me, rather, I would like them to be less important. That would take people actually voting for people who aren't promising to increase government, however, and I sense I'm not in the majority on that, and may never be. It's not optimal, but it's not horrible.

Perhaps improbable, but that's not the same as Obama *calling Krugman* those names.

Don't you think that politicians have a hard job? I am not being facetious here at all. After spending X hours at city council meetings, I can honestly say that I would hate the job. Your task is to go in every Wednesday and try to get along with the stupidest imbeciles you can imagine. (I'm not talking about the national political party I dislike; I'm talking about the other side of these town-side disputes, where it's obvious that my viewpoint is the right one.)
