Well I advise you to read the article because Krugman DID say this.
That turns out not to be the case.

"Iff'n I had a son, I would name him Rolling Stoned."

Rolling Stone. The same magazine that probably thinks Kim Kardashian would make a great hedge fund manager, because, like, she's really, like so smart.

Not the best. Not the worst. Would have been better without the lousy, obstructionist Republican congress.

Heck that is better than even his own narcissistic assessment of himself.

Yes, jump on the bandwagon of an such intelligent news sources like Rolling Stone to agree with their opinion. I guess a magazine who had the Boston bomber on the cover is just fine with you as well.

Personally I believe he has been one of the most inept leaders of all time, and certainly worse than any in my lifetime. Unlike either Bill Clinton or Ronald Reagan, this guy doesn't even understand what pragmatic means, much less being capable of it. Both Reagan & Clinton faced off against hostile majorities in Congress, yet still managed to get a lot accomplished. Obama doesn't even have an ounce of leadership either one of those two had.

He has also been the most divisive president in my lifetime, having been a professional rabble rouser, and taking that national as president. He and his minions have set race relations back in this country at least a few decades.

So keep smoking your dope and following RS as your go to news source. I'm sure it has and will continue to work out well for you.

Oh yes, Rolling Stone looove the Kardashians: If you feel you must attack the messenger by strawman, do try to remember that this is the magazine that started Hunter S. Thompson and P.J. O'Rourke, among others. They may not be of your political stripe, but they're not a vapid celebrity-worship magazine, either.

Hey if we can give Regan false credit for Ending the cold war, and dismiss his destruction of the middle class in America, not to mention his administration role in the Crack epidemic. Then we should be able to give Obama credit for things he ACTUALLY accomplished like the finding and killing of Osama.
