What??? Are you kidding?
Mr. Obama didn’t do what Ronald Reagan, who also faced a poor economy early in his administration, did — namely, shelter himself from criticism with a narrative that placed the blame on previous administrations.
So the constant refrain of it’s Bush’s fault that has been leaking out of Obama’s mouth for the last 12 months weren’t designed to blame the previous administration?
I can only assume that Krugman has had a stroke that has rendered him incapable of coherent thought.
