A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.
Friday, July 16, 2004 Just one comment...: on today's Paul Krugman column in the New York Times.
As I said last week, I don't see how Mr. Bush can win this debate.
It doesn't matter what "it" is. Can anyone remember a time when Krugman thought Bush could win any debate? Is there any decision Bush has ever made that Krugman thought was a correct one?
Believe-it-or-don't, I chronicled one such episode not 3 months ago <http://www.cdharris.net/archives/2004_04.html#003588>: "For some pollutants, setting a cap on total emissions, while letting polluters buy and sell emission rights, is a cost-efficient way to reduce pollution," explained the New York Times's Paul Krugman in an April 6 editorial. "The cap-and-trade system for sulfur dioxide," Krugman added, "has been a big success."
This is, as I said at the time, the only example of him taking a day off from attacking Bush to say something positive about one of the Administration's proposals of which I am aware.
