ELECTION: History shows the truth

Columnist David Brooks tells us that “Romney’s the ticket” (TNT, 8-22). Brooks also spent eight years writing how great “Bushonomics” was until the economic disaster came crashing down around him.

On the other hand, from 2001 on, columnist Paul Krugman (TNT, 8-22) has warned of the “con game” that George Bush, the Republicans and now the Romney-Ryan ticket is trying to sell the voters yet again.

Krugman has not been a big Obama fan, but he has been consistently correct in his analysis of the Republican rich man con game. Brooks, on the other hand, has been little more than a party hack spitting out propaganda from Republican National Committee HQ in the D.C. beltway.

Who are you going to believe? Not hard to figure out; the history is obvious and there for anyone to read.
