This is a fascinating glimpse into the progressive mind.

Paul Krugman was interviewed on ABC’s This Week and just couldn’t say enough about what a great president Obama has been.

Ryan Lovelace of National Review has the story:

Since the presidential debate last week I’ve been trying to remember where I saw this movie before, as it were—where a man considered a member of the elite, the cognoscenti, whose brilliance is considered by millions of admirers to be self evident and unimpeachable, got his clock thoroughly cleaned by someone...

Democrats and media helpers like Paul Krugman have been weaving a Tea Party eliminationist narrative for years.

As pointed out by James Taranto, it looks like Democrats finally have found an eliminationist narrative they can believe in:

The attacks on 9/11 separated the real heroes from the fake heroes.

The Fake hero who comforted the grieving and raised a nation’s spirits:

The Fake hero who kept a city together:

Paul Krugman has a shameful column today, shameful even by Krugman standards.

Is it just me, or are the 9/11 commemorations oddly subdued?

Actually, I don’t think it’s me, and it’s not really that odd.

What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it...

Someone created a faux Paul Krugman Google+ account and posted the following:

People on twitter might be joking, but in all seriousness, we would see a bigger boost in spending and hence economic growth if the earthquake had done more damage.

The message sent out on Twitter (now removed) was picked up by ...

That’s saying a lot.

Unlike the children who run the Democratic Party, Clinton recognizes that Medicare and other entitlements must be reformed, and that the Democratic Party is harming the country by making “do nothing” the main focus of Democratic Party campaign strategy:

Paul Krugman (emphasis mine):

I don’t watch cable news, or actually any kind of TV news. But I gather that there’s a virtual blackout on the huge demonstrations in Wisconsin, except on Fox, which portrays them as thuggish and violent.

What that makes me think of is January-February 2003, when anyone watching cable...

This is a follow up to my earlier post about the findings by a social psychlogist that there is a “statistically impossible” skew in the percentages of social psychologists who self-identify as liberal and conservative, reflecting a pervasive bias against conservatives throughout the social sciences.

I posted yesterday about Eric Fuller, who blamed Sarah Palin and others for the Tucson shooting by Jared Loughner.

Now Fuller has been arrested for making a death threat against a local tea party leader:

Obama’s speech at the Tucson memorial was an opportunity thrust upon him, not one of choice.

But the tone of the speech was consistent in many ways with the Obama 2.0 we saw during the lame duck session when Obama struck a tax deal with Republicans.  Coming together to get things done...

I thought Obama’s speech at the memorial for the Tucson shooting victims was a good speech, better in writing than in delivery, which is unusual for him.

The pep rally atmosphere was strange, but I learned long ago that people grieve in their own ways.  And one cannot blame Obama for unsolicited...
