Krugman: “Only Fools and Clowns Believe Republican Ideology”… Just Look at What Democrats Have Given Us

Noted New York Times liberal columnist Paul Krugman attacked Republican candidates yesterday on This Week with Christiane Amanpour.
The Raw Story reported:

Paul Krugman says that Newt Gingrich is just the latest of the “fools and clowns” in the Republican presidential race to become a frontrunner.

“I have a structural hypothesis here,” Krugman told ABC’s Christiane Amanpour Sunday. “You have a Republican ideology, which Mitt Romney obviously doesn’t believe in. He just oozes insincerity, that’s just so obvious. But all of the others are fools and clowns. And there is a question here, my hypothesis is that maybe this is an ideology that only fools and clowns can believe in. And that’s the Republican problem.”

…Krugman explained. “The Republican base does not want Romney and they keep on looking for an alternative. And Newt, although — somebody said, ‘He’s a stupid man’s idea of what a smart person sounds like.’ But he is more plausible than the other guys they’ve been pushing up.”

Uh-huh.
Yeah, Paul. Just look what that Liberal Democrat ideology has brought this country the past three years.

Yes, Paul, that democrat ideology has done wonders.
