Paul Krugman: ‘Ridiculous’ to Talk About ‘Tiny, Tiny Missteps’ Like Solyndra
New York Times columnist Paul Krugman appeared as a guest on ABC’s This Week Sunday where he said, among other things, that Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget plan is a “fraud,” Scott Walker is trying to redistribute income upwards through tax cuts, and that it’s “terribly unfair” to hold Obama responsible for the shameful state of the United States economy. [ MENTALLY ILL???? OR JUST ARROGANT?]
If that’s not enough, the columnist remarked of Solyndra: “We’re talking as if a billion dollars was a lot of money…,” particularly in comparison to the size of the U.S. debt and the economy. While this is true, the economist seemingly lacks any awareness that it is precisely this mindset that leads to a $15 trillion dollar debt.

Last August, Forbes contributor Warren Meyer summarized:
I suppose it should not surprise me that a prominent voice on the left does not recognize a distinction between private equity money invested voluntarily and public investments of taxpayer money. So, to help Dr. Krugman out, let me suggest several important differences.
The most important distinction is that [private failures like] Pets.com did not take my money. Solyndra did, and without my permission, too. When Solyndra flushed over a half billion dollars down the toilet, some of that wealth destroyed was mine.
THERE'S NO POSSIBLE EXCUSE FOR THIS MAN!!!!!! He must be delusional!!!!
