George W. Bush aide Mary Matalin and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman clashed on ABC’s This Week Sunday, with the former eventually telling the latter, “You’re hardly credible on calling somebody else a liar” (Credit to Newsbusters for the segment)

PEGGY NOONAN, WALL STREET JOURNAL: Barack Obama was supposed to be this sort of moderate, centrist fellow who looked at Mitt Romney, this extreme, strange fellow. By the time that debate was over, Mitt Romney seemed a completely, moderate, centrist figure who showed up as Mitt Romney the governor, not as Mitt Romney the candidate.

PAUL KRUGMAN, NEW YORK TIMES: Except that everything he used to claim his centrism wasn’t true, so this is a question, does that start to take its toll over the next few months?

NOONAN: I just think that is unjust. I mean to say the very least —

KRUGMAN: When you say, “My plan cover s pre-existing conditions,” when it doesn’t, and when your own campaign has admitted in the past that it doesn’t, what do you say? That’s amazing.

MARY MATALIN: Professor, can I ask you? You have mischaracterized and you have lied about every position and every particular of the Ryan plan on Medicare, from the efficiency of Medicare administration to calling it a voucher plan. So you’re hardly credible on calling somebody else a liar.
