, "Left Pans Obama Spending Freeze:"
“A spending freeze? That’s the brilliant response of the Obama team to their first serious political setback? It’s appalling on every level,” blogged New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, a Nobel Prize-winning economist.
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow called the plan “completely, completely insane.”
Paul Rosenberg of the liberal blog Open Left described the move as a clear sign that Obama is “an idiot,” doomed to repeat the causes of the Great Depression.
Several leading voices on the left were even more strident, saying the move was not only bad economics, but also bad politics. [Wow, more strident than "appalling on every level" "completely insane" “idiot"?!]
Christopher Hayes, Washington editor of The Nation: “I wish there was a way to sue for political malpractice, because what we’re seeing from the White House and congressional Democrats these last two weeks would make for a depressingly good case.” Hee hee, between the Brown win and this latest liberal crack up, it's been a great month!
