In Case You Missed It

Here is a link to Paul Krugman's February 3 column on Bush's "State of Delusion". Since Krugman's columns are initially locked behind the New York Times pay-to-play delusion, it takes a couple of days for his gems to gain the wide audience they deserve.

"In other words, this administration is all politics and no policy. It knows how to attain power, but has no idea how to govern. That is why the administration was caught unaware when Katrina hit, and why it was totally unprepared for the predictable problems with its drug plan. It is why Mr. Bush announced an energy plan with no substance behind it. And it is why the state of the union -- the thing itself and not the speech -- is so grim."

Grim indeed.
