Krugman is a total hack

Ben Bernanke isn't powerful enough to control the price of food and energy?

So, the relative value of money to goods and services has nothing to do with the exchange price?

I can't believe he would even make that assertion.

I would love to ask Paul

I would love to ask Paul Krugman this question:

Can a currency be debased, and if so how?

I would love to hear his strange nonsensical answer...

One almost wants to see this shit come crashing down

just so these bullshit artists will be dragged in the streets.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

They would just go on the talk circuit

and claim it is not their fault, i.e. Bernanke : the housing crisis is not the Fed's fault. They live in their own reality.

They'd need armor transports wherever they went. :)

There are certain ....

venues that Ron should avoid completely - this was definitely one of them. I don't see any point in debating an idiot Obama schill like Krugman. Its just a set up by the major media to discredit Ron.
Krugman says he does'nt understand the monetary system that was in place for 5,000 years - what a dolt.

Are you still listening to this tool!

"The Fed has nothing to do with food and gas prices rising." I am no expert but I think that inflation plays a part. Who is responsible for inflation? Uh, uh, gee, the Fed maybe, maybe.

Of course it does..

Anyone with a brain knows it's all relative.

Did I Miss It?

Paul is nowhere to be seen, and it's only 4:30 or so. :(

yes

yes, you did

wow, that wasn't a debate.

that more like, "Let's let Ron speak for 4 minutes, have a commercial break so the audience forgets everything he said, and then have Krugman give some closing thoughts that have no relevance to what Paul said..."

lol, crap...

Was Krugman too scared for the second segment?

I was waiting for Paul vs. Paul round 2 when they came back from commercial, but Krugman was nowhere to be found.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

-C. S. Lewis

Krugman was losing

So during the commercial break he got a call from 'the establishment' of WTF.

Ron Paul 1 Krugman 0

Ron Paul 1 Krugman 0

more like

Ron Paul: 9,234,344,323,654,532,656,124,454,656,789,477

KRUDman: Zero, always a zero.

** That would be a 9.2 Decillion vs. zero!

LOL even FireFox spellchecker don't 'think' decillion is a real unit! Oh but it is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Names_of_large_numbers

lol

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

Its not 0, you didn't account for inflation

If you don't gain at least 7% in each round (year) then you wont beat inflation... therefore, Krugman is negative.

in reality

that would be our national debt under Fed Chairman Krugman

Great Job

Dr. Paul!

That witch was almost begging Ron to drop out.

It's like her handlers are in total panic mode because they cannot hide his popularity and wise ideas much longer.

beephree

What kind of....

S**T was that question she asked!? When will you drop out?! WTF....I am so angry I can´t see strait!!!!!

she has a job to keep ya know

I thought Trish was very

I thought Trish was very respectful to Dr. Paul.

Then do us all a favor

and stop thinking - because you are not very good at it.

Yes, but...

she just couldn't risk asking the same questions they all do.

"So, now that you are doing so well, and support for your ideas are gaining ground, and you are allocating delegates, and have a real chance at winning the nomination, when are you going to quit and get behind Mittens? Hmmmm?"

Ditz.

(ugh!)

Maybe, just maybe no one will ask him when he is going to quit and support Romney...oh, wait...nope she just did. Ttthpppttt. Do they not pay attention to the other talking heads and the questions ask?

Holy crap

Does anyone else want to punch her in the face?
I love how it is like having a conversation with a 12yo - rude, interrupting, giggles.
WTF

That fake smirk tells it all

That fake smirk tells it all for me. These people are so unhappy with themselves they don't remember what a real smile looks like. It's quite easy for the Hollywood teams to fake it in a movie. These announcers are too far gone to even know it.

Lame Stream Media?

Presstitute Media, Dinosaur Media
They are in fact the "WAG THE DOG MEDIA" and that is what I will call them. The movie was not entirely fiction
