We ran Krugman’s take on this a few days ago, but it’s worth another laugh!
The Weekly Joke Revue is coming later today, but this news is just too precious to wait: George W. Bush is planning a book “outlining strategies for economic growth.” NYT:
Two months from now, he plans to publish a book outlining strategies for economic growth.
Republicans talking about strategies for economic growth is like Mitt Romney talking about strategies for pet transportation, or Scott Brown talking about how to keep student loan rates low.
The GOP may offer a lot to voters who want employers to decide whether women can get reproductive health care, and whether interest rates on student loans should suddenly double to benefit banks, but after crashing the economy in 2008 and making tax cuts for billionaires their #1 subsequent legislative priority the party has no credibility at all on economic matters.
