Being reasonable won’t help.
Krugman goes after Larry Summers, who, in my book was a disaster as Secretary of Treasury. I mean, one of the few good things to come out of Bush v/Gore was that Summers ceased to be SecTreasury before he had a chance to do some real damage. He is an example of the Democrat version of Supply Side economics without the actual market experience that gives Supply Side economics whatever credibility it has left.
Krugman has never been popular with the Clinton crowd precisely because he isn’t Larry Summers. And he isn’t popular with conservatives because he keeps pointing out that Reaganomics has been revealed, historically, as crap.
