Just a quick note here. Paul Krugman has taken a look at Romney's economic plans on his blog. Understanding Romneynomics spells out how he plans to create all those jobs, as nearly as Dr. K can figure it out. The short version is, Romney believes he IS the Confidence Fairy - elect him and the magic will happen.
Krugman often foreshadows what his column will be about with his blog entries; tomorrow in the NY Times should be a good read if that's the case here. And if you want to know what Romney means when he says he comes from a small business background, check out Krugman here.
It's truly frightening how many people believe Romney actually knows anything about the real economy the rest of us have to live in. A bigger pile of mendacity and ego it's hard to imagine - even Donald Trump doesn't come close.
UPDATE: Krugman uses both blog posts linked above for material for his latest: Snow Job on Jobs.
But Mr. Romney, it turns out, doesn’t have a plan; he’s just faking it. In saying that, I don’t mean that I disagree with his economic philosophy; I do, but that’s a separate point. I mean, instead, that Mr. Romney’s campaign is telling lies: claiming that its numbers add up when they don’t, claiming that independent studies support its position when those studies do no such thing.emphasis added
Read the whole thing. While it's been obvious for months that Emperor Romney has no clothes (or principles), he's still somehow getting credit for having a real plan to turn the economy around. It's that myth that a business man has all the skills needed to run the country. The last MBA president we had worked out really well, didn't he? To paraphrase Big Dog, Romney's plan is "The economy for stupids."
Now if only the NY Times would put Krugman on the front page....
