[Ed. – The critics are over-the-top partisan, and they count on the public knowing nothing about these men’s resumes.]
In a tweetstorm Friday, Paul Krugman called Cain a “clown” and Moore “an incompetent, dishonest hack.” Krugman has never met a Republican he didn’t viciously despise and has called the mild-mannered and accomplished Mitt Romney “amoral” and “a dangerous fool.” Even a Good Republican like Romney gets the Krugman smear treatment.
New York magazine’s Jonathan Chait similarly called Cain “an unqualified hack.” Chait, like Krugman, does this to every Republican. In 2003, he wrote a piece for The New Republic that began: “I hate President George W. Bush. There, I said it.” …
Start with Cain, whose US Senate campaign I worked on in 2004 and who has extensive experience in economics and finance.
From 1995 to 1997, he served as chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, having served as deputy chairman for two years before that.
If that’s not relevant experience, what’s the point of the Regional Bank Boards?
