  •  If Krugman thought it was a disaster (1+ / 0-)

    he would not have a problem saying exactly that.  He doesn't love it but he doesn't hate it.  He is analyzing the individual components of the deal, and realizing that the deal contains some good and some bad. It is good to keep in mind that Krugman has substantially more flexibility than those in congress and President Obama.  He doesn't have to run for reelection and no one is going to hold him responsible for it if the economy tanks.  

    Krugman is saying what most reasonable people are saying.  It is sad that such a deal has to be made.  There is a lot of stuff that may not look so wise in a couple years.  There is some benefit to some of the components.  Not optimistic that the benefits will be enough to get the economy going.  

    Unlike the impeach Obama because he is the worst president ever crowd, Krugman is looking at this deal analytically.
