Donald Luskin wrong wrong wrong

An anonymous comment to the following piece on "reform" in social security refers to this piece by Donald Luskin in the right wing National Review. I think it's interesting that this right wing lobbyist (see the qualifications at the foot of the article... he works for the Investment Industry) resorts almost at once to ad hominem attacks on Mr. Krugman.

I believe, in any case, he's quite mistaken about the prospects for Bush's program. This is a BIG issue, and with the AARP, almost all Democrats, and most even reasonably socially conscious organizations opposed to wrecking the program, I think "privatization" of social security is not only not in the bag, its prospects are not good at all. And for this, I am thankful.
