CNBC host Larry Kudlow has a new interview out in Playboy, of all places, in which he talks economics and politics.
From a sample we received:
On his compassionate conservatism: “I’m not an attack dog. The birther movement, I think that’s nuts. Nuts! I don’t have any patience for that, I really don’t. Do I think Reagan’s supply-side tax cuts worked? Yes, I’ll defend that. Do I want the Fed to link the dollar to gold to make King Dollar? Yes, but that’s different from saying Obama is a Muslim.”
And we’re curious what fellow CNBC’er Rick Santelli thinks of this part:
On the Draft Kudlow movement, which sought to convince him to run for the Republican nomination for senator from New York: “These guys up in Buffalo wanted to draft me. I like the Tea Party gang – good kids – but it kind of took off in the blogosphere. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to get Schumer out of there – and it was flattering – but I’m happy with what I’m doing now.”
Good kids, eh?
