Spitzer: Tea Party Endorses ‘Path of Hoover,’ Will ‘Destroy Our Country’

CNN’s new host, the former New York governor of “Client Number Nine” infamy Eliot Spitzer, slammed the Tea Party movement on Tuesday’s Parker-Spitzer: “I think that that piece of the Republican Party is vapid (NICE WORD HUH). It has no ideas….They’re going to destroy our country.” Spitzer also accused Tea Party members of forwarding a “Herbert Hoover vision of government…saying, we want to take away the very pieces of government that created the middle class.”

AND SPEAKING OF DOPES, THEY STILL JUST DON’T GET IT. KEYNESIAN ECONOMICS IS AN UTTER DISMAL FAILURE !

NYT Shocked People Would Read Nobel Economist Hayek, Ponders Strange Concepts Like ‘Rule of Law’

Kate Zernike, the New York Times’s Tea Party reporter, can add another scalp to her collection. This one belongs to ‘obscure’ Nobel Prize-winning economist Freidrich Hayek and his wacky theories like “rule of law.”

“Once-obscure texts by dead writers” such as Hayek, wrote Zernike, are full of “long-dormant ideas” and strange arguments like Hayek’s claim, as summarized by Zernike, that “government that intervened in the economy would inevitably intervene in every aspect of its citizens’ lives.” Who would believe that?

Hayek, meanwhile, won the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1974 and is widely considered to be one of the most influential economists of the twentieth century. But Zernike just can’t get over his radical views, principally that he advocates  “a return to the principles of Austrian economics” and “the rule of law.” I know, real wingnut stuff.
