Paul Krugman, "Sandy Versus Katrina": Government Should Provide Aid in Times of Crisis . . . Except When a Consulate Is Under Siege

In case you didn't notice, Paul Krugman - as well as fellow New York Times columnists Maureen Dowd, Thomas Friedman, Nicholas Kristof and even David Brooks - have refused to discuss what happened in Benghazi.

In his latest New York Times op-ed entitled "Sandy Versus Katrina" (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/05/opinion/krugman-sandy-versus-katrina.html), Krugman writes:

"For the response to Sandy, like the success of the auto bailout, is a demonstration that Mr. Obama’s philosophy of government — which holds that the government can and should provide crucial aid in times of crisis — works."

Yeah, right. The federal government under Obama "can and should provide crucial aid in times of crisis," except when Americans are under siege overseas and an immediate decision is demanded by the Commander-in-Chief.

C'est tout.

  2. To anonymous who sent the inquiry re The Jerusalem Post: Sorry, I have no influence or connections there. (In the past, they refused to publish any of my opinion pieces.)
