"Fiscal Suicide Ahead" - and you know Krugman didn't write that

It was David Brook's op-ed of a few days ago.

Paul Krugman predicted "A Fiscal Train Wreck" back in 2003. So where are Krugman's criticisms of Obama's proposals, which will hike spending and debt (including quadrupling the worst of any deficits this decade) beyond anything under George W. Bush?

Oh, that's right, Democrats are in control now. Though Krugman had thrown his lot in with Hillary, he still won't say anything against the fundamentally identical nature of Obama's spending orgy -- except maybe, as Don Luskin points out, that Obama isn't being liberal enough.
