Obama Admits He’s Really a Moderate Republican

Obama Admits He’s Really a Moderate Republican

I posted this on Kulture Kritic earlier today:

Whenever anyone dares to say that President Obama is a right of center politician, he or she is usually maligned as a “hater”, or someone who clearly doesn’t understand politics. (That sort of thing usually involves a trite chess vs. checkers reference as well.)  But in an all but unnoticed comment on Spanish-language television on December 14, Obama himself confirmed that, according to the traditional American political spectrum, he’s a moderate Republican. Said Obama, “The truth of the matter is that my policies are so mainstream that if I had set the same policies that I had back in the 1980s, I would be considered a moderate Republican.”

You can read the rest here. Although I doubt this changes anything, I am hopeful that people will, eventually, come to terms with who Obama is and what he actually believes, versus the beliefs we’ve projected onto him. Our epic misunderstanding of who Obama is ideologically should be a lesson to us all.

    queenofmeanest Not the only person. But his leanings were clearly evident within the first year of his first term – particularly with his bait and switch on the public option for Obamacare.
