    It's just that he isn't a dictator.  When Krugman was screaming that the stimulus package wasn't enough, Obama knew that and stated it often but it WASN'T JUST HIS DECISION.  He doesn't get the luxury of just writing an op-ed and playing armchair quarterback.  He has to actually implement any ideas and that means going through a hostile Congress and media.  I'd love it if Krugman got involved in an actual post because it would be fun to see him squirm and actually try to make his ideas happen.  Bright man but he hasn't had to sit in one smoke filled room with people screaming at him.
