I guess the big “gotcha” in the Krugman bankruptcy “story” was that Krugman’s big spending liberal views on debt led him into bankruptcy and therefore he’s been proven wrong. He has, in essence, refuted himself. Gotcha!
Of course, even if this story were true, it would prove nothing. It would not be a case of Krugman refuting himself because it overlooks the other thing that Krugman says all the time, which is that the finances of an individual / family in no way relate to those of the federal government.
So to recap: In order to prove that damn hippie Krugman wrong, conservative “journalists” pushed a fake “story” that wouldn’t actually make a point about Krugman even if it were true, which it isn’t.
Heckuva job, Brownie.
