The Raw Story

This story may not be going away for a long while.

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman lashed out at the commemoration of the 10 year anniversary of September 11th, labeling George W. Bush and Rudy Giuliani as “fake heroes.”

On his “Conscience of a Liberal” blog Sunday morning, the Princeton economics professor didn’t lack in showing any temerity in his comments that certainly will upset conservatives.

“What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful,” he wrote. “Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons.”

Krugman, who normally allows comments, also wrote that he wasn’t going to allow comments under this post “for obvious reasons.”

  1. Krugman is a total db. He’s a fake, his political dogma and economic spoutings are corrupt and will never be proven out in the real world because his ideas are pie in the sky rants that have no place in the real world. The legacy of 60′s idealism he believes in so deeply is rooted in the thought that somehow they, being them in particular can make the failed policies work where they have never worked through out history. Never mind the amount of real human blood that has been spilled in the effort to make those policies work or the amount it will take to relearn those lessons in future uneducated generations. Gotta love that 1st Amendment. I doubt Krugman thinks it should be a right given out to those unqualified to know what’s important or to tell the masses what’s important.
