Paul Krugman Exposes What Democrats Cheer For

You have to go all the way down to the end of the article, but, he finally exposes the reality of the Democrats. NY Times – The Obama Agenda

One thing is clear: for Democrats, winning this election should be the easy part. Everything is going their way: sky-high gas prices, a weak economy and a deeply unpopular president. The real question is whether they will take advantage of this once-in-a-generation chance to change the country’s direction. And that’s mainly up to Mr. Obam

That’s what we on the Right have been saying for quite some time: anything bad for America is good for Democrats.

Say, I wonder why Paul doesn’t mention that Congress is even more unpopular then Bush? Of course, it is not about popularity, but job approval. Heck, people have more confidence in the presidency then Congress. Over double, actually.

    I think it’s more accurate to say that when things are not going well in the country, the current administration is usually blamed by the party out of power. Both sides have done it and will continue to do it. That’s politics. Conservatives do this as well. Charlie Black, John McCain’s chief strategist, recently said that another terrorist attack on the U.S. would be a “big advantage” to McCain.

  2. Stacy says:

    Black has also been condemned by McCain and The Right. That’s the difference.

  3. John Ryan says:

    Americans are disappointed in Congress, that is the reason that even more Democrats will be elected in 2008 so that Congress can be controlled by the Democrats instead of having their will be blocked by the threat of a filibuster in the Senate (by the Republicans who represent 1/3 less of the population) and by a veto by Bush which they can not over ride.
    Teach how many more seats in the Senate and House do you expect the Republicans to lose in 2008 ? Care to put up a number? I think that they will lose an additional 5 in the Senate and 15 in the House.

    Stacy said: Black has also been condemned by McCain and The Right. That’s the difference.

    The difference is who said it…not what was said. McCain rightly condemned a statement made by his own chief strategist – as opposed to an Op-Ed columnist with no official position in either campaign.

    It is simply a reality in politics that the party in power is blamed when things go wrong. To attribute this only to Democrats and imply that they either wish for the worst or are glad to benefit from it is disingenuous. Republicans do it too.

  5. Stacy says:

    Well I agree with you on that Silke, the sky will always be falling for some and they will blame it who happens to be sitting in that chair in the Oval Office.

    My point was the disgust many on the Right felt in regards to Black’s comment. We do not see the same condemnation on the Left when they are the ones guilty of the same. I can site countless examples, but have more important things to attend to.

  6. Silke says:

    Stacy, I see your point but since we are only discussing the statement by Krugman as compared to Black, the comment about high gas prices and a weak economy seems mild compared to a major terrorist attack. Surely that is in part the reason for the difference in the responses. I still feel the biggest reason, though, is the difference in who said it

  7. But, we are talking about Krugman, and he is pointing out that the Dem position is that anything bad for America is good for Dems. That is why they push doom and gloom. Black made one dumbass comment. Democrats have made tons.
