Krugman: Trust President Obama?

Quote of the Day

[L]et’s be frank. It’s getting harder and harder to trust Mr. Obama’s motives in the budget fight, given the way his economic rhetoric has veered to the right. In fact, if all you did was listen to his speeches, you might conclude that he basically shares the G.O.P.’s diagnosis of what ails our economy and what should be done to fix it. And maybe that’s not a false impression; maybe it’s the simple truth. . .

[I]t’s hard to see why a president who has gone out of his way to echo Republican rhetoric and endorse false conservative views deserves .. trust.
