The World as He Finds It
By PAUL KRUGMAN
Published: November 14, 2010
On Wednesday David Axelrod, President Obamas top political adviser, appeared to signal that the White House was ready to cave on tax cuts to give in to Republican demands that tax cuts be extended for the wealthy as well as the middle class. We have to deal with the world as we find it, he declared.
The White House then tried to walk back what Mr. Axelrod had said. But it was a telling remark, in more ways than one.
The obvious point is the contrast between the administrations current whipped-dog demeanor and Mr. Obamas soaring rhetoric as a candidate. How did we get from We are the ones weve been waiting for to here?
But the bitter irony goes deeper than that: the main reason Mr. Obama finds himself in this situation is that two years ago he was not, in fact, prepared to deal with the world as he was going to find it. And it seems as if he still isnt.
In retrospect, the roots of current Democratic despond go all the way back to the way Mr. Obama ran for president. Again and again, he defined Americas problem as one of process, not substance we were in trouble not because we had been governed by people with the wrong ideas, but because partisan divisions and politics as usual had prevented men and women of good will from coming together to solve our problems. And he promised to transcend those partisan divisions.

Buyer's remorse. So sad.
The guy writing this is obviously a died in the wool communist. He thinks Bozo should have passed even more invasive legislature using his captive congress and that is why the economy is failing and people are pi**ed at him.
Krugman claims in this article that Obama wasn't radical enough, and that's why he's failed. That's right Paul, what the American people really wanted was something between French socialism and Castroism, but the most far left congress - with huge majorities - and the most far left president in decades were somehow forced by nefarious forces to “compromise.” As a result the American people are angry and confused because the administration and congress somehow couldn't finagle a wholesale government takeover of the economy.
Keep believing that Paul, and tell yourself the same story every time you burnish up that Nobel medal.
Asshat (axelrod) and dumbass (krugmann) sold America a sad bid of goods (Odumbo0 sshat claims he is leaving in the spring of 2011 to run Odumbo’s re-election campaig. it is cover for he is fleeing Dumkopf citadel for Shitcago. Dumbass who writes for the NYT has to cover his ass with paper, because the world is now seeing Odumbo for what he is incomptent, illiterate and mentally ill.
You’re almost right..it’s not that they “can’t quite accept” Dude’s inadequacy..there is NO way that they can even contemplate it...for that would mean that they, the MSM elites, were wrong..and that can never be true..so therefor, it must be Dude’s fault..
Krugman has stopped supporting Obama in order to save his own reputation.
Who likes to hear himself talk more - Krugman or Obozo?
to me, getting to watch the Krugman meltdown in full bloom is one of the truly enjoyable benefits of November 2.
