He was the first to jump on Sarah Palin for the Tuscon shootings, and yesterday, <i>NY Times's</i> Paul Krugman used 9/11 to attack Rudy Giuliani and President George W. Bush in his blog, "Years of Shame
."What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful. Te (sic) atrocity should have been a unifying event, but instead it became a wedge issue. Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons.
Today's guest host, Larry O'Connor, was the first member of the media to publicly respond to Krugman, saying:Mr. Krugman couldn’t contain his vindictive hatred of the President and had to rush to the “blog of record” to let his venom flow. The sanctimonious and self-righteous tone of Krugman’s post is something we’ve grown used to by now: “and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not”. But this use of the 9/11 memorial as an occasion to accuse President Bush and Mayor Giuliani of political war profiteering is beyond the pale, even for Krugman.See Larry's whole piece at Andrew Breitbart's Big Journalism
