  •  I can't speak for Krugman (2+ / 0-)

    but if I were in his situation, I'd be getting tired of repeating the same arguments to fools who fight or ignore it.

    He's been making these arguments for several years now, while watching our economy circle the drain as political leaders ignore it.

    Casting pearls before swine probably gets tiresome after a while.  Trying to talk over idiots like Scarborough and Stephonopoulus probably gets boring after a while.

    I'm just glad Krugman is still willing to find new ways to keep getting the same message out there on how to fix the economy.

    It is an old strategy of tyrants to delude their victims into fighting their battles for them. FDR

    •  I don't blame him either (0+ / 0-)

      He frequently, during the "debate" had this "WTF am I even bothering talking to these idiots? " look on his face.  But  if it is pointless,, WTF even bother?
      The real tragedy is that he is the only face of economic reality to be allowed to consistently come before the public.

      If there were a couple more, hopefully really good in front of the cameras, economists who were allowed on TV, things might be better. ( Jared Bernstein actually does this, and he has cred as a former Clinton economic official).  But Krugman needs more backup.
