Krugman is very good at one thing: building strawmans. And that is exactly what he does with Ron Paul. I felt embarrassed for Krugman reading his posts.

I don't feel for him.  Krugman has long ago abandoned the sceptical economic background that netted him a Nobel in favor of biased political punditry.  What's sad is that people still consider him a serious economist, and then listen to him without the proper 'bullshit' filters.  It's the 'appeal to authority' fallacy writ large.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

This should be offtopic. I don't have time to listen to attack pieces made by Krugman or anybody on any side for that matter.

I didn't think anyone was listening to Krugman any more.  Or Al Gore for that matter, despite having invented the internet.  Cheesy

Oh, I was thinking the title meant he had finally resorted to physically assaulting Paul.
