My Reply to a Paul Krugman Post in NYT

http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/07/29/mystery-man/?smid=tw-NytimesKrugman&seid=auto

When do we face the rather unpalatable truth that President Obama is weak, utterly weak, with the dregs of Clinton era economic thinkers as self-chosen advisers. The economic reform of 1999 signed by Clinton did its insidious work by 2008, the reign of the promised economic boom became an economic pathology. President Obama can make eloquent speeches,stirring rhetoric does not a leader make: he surrenders before the fight. When do you say f**k it and put up your dukes?

Don't know if this will pass the high standards of the NYT but it needed to be said!

Best regards to all

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
