Paul Krugman was one of the few.
For this foresight, he was called "deranged" on the pages of a competing, national newspaper. He was called shrill, gnome-like, disgusting by right-wing bloggers. He was threatened with bodily harm in the landslide of hate mail driven by attacks from Bill O'Reilly and others. The National Review even instituted an on-line column dedicated to "debunking" Krugman's arguments.The Atlantic Monhtly also had a very astute article asking if we really wanted a long term relationship with Iraq. The Atlantic editor was also right.
If his status as Right Wing Target Number One is any indication, he clearly scared the crap out of Bush supporters.
BTW - The long history of not taking the oath on the Bible in America.
