Although I normally find myself in disagreement with the views expressed by the Post-Gazette editorial staff, I must compliment them on trying to bring some semblance of balance to their editorial content. A weekly column by Charles Krauthammer is a refreshing offset to the liberal drivel of the likes of Paul Krugman. The Jan. 17 opposing columns by Mr. Krauthammer ("Even Obama Seems to Understand How Much Bush Got Right") and Mr. Krugman ("Forgive and Forget? Obama Is Obliged to Investigate the Bush Administration") quite clearly illustrate this point.
Mr. Krauthammer rightly points out that now that Mr. Obama must get down to the job of governing, as opposed to campaigning, he will benefit from a number of the Bush administration's tough decisions that have been so maligned by the liberal media.
In contrast Mr. Krugman continues his mean-spirited attack on Mr. Bush and advocates wasting time and money to pursue the prosecution of well-meaning public servants. This is just another example of a leftist academic pursuing a totally irrelevant agenda out of touch with the real world. It's too bad he has never had the opportunity to hold a real job like the rest of us.
