Greenspan on the Half Shell


Doody Head Award winner and all around douche bag Robert Novak has outdone himself this week:

This weekend on Bloomberg Television, right-wing pundit Robert Novak ripped former Fed chief Alan Greenspan because he criticizes Bush's economic policies while hailing those of President Clinton. Novak said that Greenspan revealed himself "as a Democrat":
Robert Novak: "[Greenspan] suddenly emerges from the sea, naked like Venus, as a Democrat. He loves Bill Clinton, he loves tax increases, he's dismissive of Ronald Reagan as an amiable putz, he detests the Bushes."
Greenspan has identified his roots as that of a Goldwater Republican, and he has said he will vote for the Republican candidate in the 2008 presidential elections. Greenspan hasn't emerged as a progressive, but rather has revealed the truth about the failure of conservative economic theories. Think Progress

Yes, this is a wonderful depiction of how all democrats dress...when they wear clothes. I love it.

Novakula is probably just upset that he's not in the index of the book.

I always knew Greenspan had no balls.

as big of a douche Novak is, Greenspan is worse.....

says Conservative economic policies have failed, blames the current crop of GOP for screwing things up -- but is going to vote for the next Bush wannabe in '08

the logic defies all sanity

Freida Bee: Indeed! I wear only a drop of bacon grease behind each ear.

Morse: Waiter! More noteriety for Mr. Novak on table two!

Dr. Monkerstein: I don't know, he had the balls to say that the Repblican fiscal policy was crap on national television. On the other hand, he should have said it then, not now. Maybe you're right.

Distributorcap: Yes, Greenspan is a dreamer at best. Benjamin Franklin said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Yep.

To paraphrase Bill Maher, it's too bad Greenspan was never in a position of power so he could affect change on conservative economic theories.

On Meet The Press this morning Greenspan called Bill Clinton a Republican ... and then quickly said Clinton might not agree.

SamuraiFrog: Yes! I saw that bit too. Freakin' Greenspan is just tool in the GOP shed.

BAC: Because of his postition on NAFTA and some social programs, Michael Moore said that Bill Clinton could be called the best Republican president in the last 50 years. It was sort of tongue-in-cheek, though.
