    Default Danny Glover: Krugman For Treasury Secretary !!!

    Because actors are total economic wonks, I guess I'll have to set aside my usual ridicule of all things Krugman and give this some serious thought.
    (tick, tock, tick, tock.)

    Bwahahahahahaha!

    In my email, from MoveOn.org:

    elow is an email from the actor Danny Glover, who worked with the organization Just Foreign Policy to create a petition that's taking off on SignOn.org, the nonprofit site that allows anyone to start their own online petition. If you have concerns or feedback about this petition, click here.



    Dear MoveOn member,

    Press reports say President Obama will soon nominate a new Treasury Secretary. Press speculation has centered on candidates likely to support the Wall Street agenda of cuts to Social Security and Medicare benefits and other domestic spending rather than government policies to create jobs.

    We want President Obama to nominate Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman, who opposes austerity and wants the government to focus on creating jobs.

    That's why I created a petition on SignOn.org to President Barack Obama, which says:

    We urge you to nominate Paul Krugman for Treasury Secretary. Krugman will protect Social Security and Medicare from benefit cuts, promote policies to create jobs, and help defeat the austerity dogma in Washington and around the world.

    Click here to add your name to this petition, and then pass it along to your friends.

    Thanks!

    –Danny Glover

    WTF is it with all these Hollywood types? Is being a complete moron a requirement for casting, or what?

    This would be a good time to remind everyone that Hollywood got the single biggest serving of pork from the last minute fiscal cliff spending bill.

    Sure, elect Krug to Sec of Treasury, shortly after that we'll be preparing for an alien invasion.

    I wish actors would stay out of politics and stick to the screen, where I can enjoy them in roles that don't threaten my freedom.
    Ronald Reagan is proof enough of this.

    I 100% support this. Krugman is always able to get out of the spending trap by saying they didn't do it they way they should, well now man up. Show us krugman, just how fucking great you really aren't.

    On a side note, how does government create jobs without corporatism or just employing them?
    As long as you let government spend your money, they will always spend it on those who lobby for it over those who vote for it because they lied to you to get it, and they will spend it on those who best enable them to keep lying and spending your money.

    Krugman is a master at talking out his butt. He said we needed a stimulus, but when it didn't work, he said it was because we needed a bigger stimulus. Obviously.

    Speaking of actors, has anyone else noticed how lifelike Chris Matthews, and the other talking heads seem on movies. Like in "The Campaign". Maybe they act all the time.
    Best of luck in life.
