People, I ask you: is there anyone more hilarious than perennial clown and serial liar Arthur Laffer? I think not:
Supply-side economist Arthur Laffer is predicting Republicans will win the White House in a landslide this year, regardless of the nominee.
“I would be surprised if the Republicans don’t take 45, 46, 47 states out of the 50,” Laffer told host John Catsimatidis on “The Cats Roundtable” on New York’s AM-970 on Sunday.
“I mean, I think we’re going to landslide this election.”
Laffer, who served in various positions in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations, said he is bullish on the entire Republican primary field.
“When I look at these candidates, I don’t see one of them who wouldn’t do a great job as president,” he said.
“I think Donald Trump is phenomenal, I think Rand Paul has done a great job, I even like Jeb Bush — I think Jeb Bush is great, he did a wonderful job in Florida,” he added. “Chris Christie – phenomenal.”
This guy is such a jackass. Why, I wonder, does anyone even give him the time of day? Because, as I pointed out in 2012, he tells conservatives exactly what they want to hear. Whether it’s supply-side fairy tales, or various and sundry fabrications about rich people leaving Tennessee because of inheritance taxes, Laffer can always be relied upon to reinforce conservative theology. That none of it is true seems not to matter at all.
I don’t know how many times someone can lie and be wrong before our political fanboys stop paying attention to them. Apparently, if you’re a conservative, never.
