New York Times columnist Paul Krugman once suggested an alien invasion would be a grand way of turning the country’s economic fortunes around.
Now, actor Danny Glover thinks the far-left columnist is the right candidate to replace Timothy Geithner as the nation’s Treasury Secretary.
Glover, teaming up with moveon.org, is imploring President Barack Obama to choose Krugman to help save the country’s rickety economy.
“Press speculation has centered on candidates likely to support the Wall Street agenda of cuts to Social Security and Medicare benefits and other domestic spending rather than government policies to create jobs,” the “Lethal Weapon” actor wrote….
“We want President Obama to nominate Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman, who opposes austerity and wants the government to focus on creating jobs,” he added.
