photoPaul Krugman is one of the country's best economists and one of the most outspoken. In his New York Times column, he calls things as he sees them and right now he has serious questions about how the Bush administation is handling the current economic crisis.

In this hour, Paul Krugman grades the administration's performance and talks about how the President and Vice President have a lot more explaining to do about their past business deals. Are the right steps being taken to get the economy back on track? How do you grade the administration's performance? Are you concerned about the still unanswered questions about how Bush and Cheney ran their companies?
