Okay, Patrick Martin calls out Barack's 'economic wisdoms' at WSWS:
As a series of US opinion polls showed massive popular opposition to the bipartisan drive to slash Medicare and other vital social programs, President Obama sought to reassure the financial markets that he would reach agreement with congressional Republicans on major spending cuts.
Obama spoke at a community college campus in suburban Washington Tuesday, and declared, “Both Democrats and Republicans agree that we should reduce the deficit. And when folks in Washington agree on anything, that’s a good sign. So the debate isn’t about whether we reduce our deficit. The debate is about how we reduce our deficit”
While not mentioning the decision by Standard & Poor’s to downgrade its outlook on US government debt—based on the assessment that a budget agreement was unlikely before the 2012 election—Obama disputed the premise. “Both sides have come together before,” he said. “I believe we can do it again.”Explain to me again how things would be different than they are if John McCain was in the White House? Run that by me again. Oh, I'm sorry. Was I supposed to lie? Whore myself out? Like Paul Krugman?
Paul Krugman should be ashamed. At his NYT blog, he's attacking mythical medicare patients who get any procedure they want whether it's needed or not. What world is he living in?
Oh, that's right. He dances for the New York Times. They pay his bills and he's just a little whore.
