I Don't Usually Do This.

Economics is not now, nor has it ever been, my forte. But with the economy spiraling out of control--and todays "Bloody Monday" report of more than 68,000 jobs cut--it seems like a good time to post an The New York Times Op-Ed by 2008 Nobel Laureate in Econ, Paul Krugman.

In his NY Times Op-Ed, Krugman takes on the naysayers to Obama's massive stimulus plan.

I think it is well worth reading given uber-nutcase Rush Limbaugh (and others) has blatantly stated he hopes Obama fails. Failing, of course, means we all get hurt even worse; a curse only a madman would wish upon innocent Americans that didn't gamble away our economy and didn't get a spoonful of greed pie, either.

You can read Krugman's Op-Ed here.
