Our So-Called ‘Centrist’ President

January 25, 2011 17:19

Will the man who conned the public into believing he was a moderate, but who has governed as the most immoderate leftist in the country’s history, now try to pull the same con so he can be elected again??

How naive does he think we are? Well, pretty darn naive, given the polls that everyone is bending over backward to cite. They show President Obama’s approval rating turning up in large part because he didn’t let the Bush tax cuts expire, enlisted cronies to help him appear more “business friendly” and paid lip service to regulatory reform.

Give us a break. Does anyone think that the Barack Obama who set out to “transform” the America that he found so distasteful has himself been transformed?

Call us skeptics, but we don’t. But then, we were among the few in the media who saw through Obama’s facade in 2008, who feared he’d put the U.S. on a path that could only be described as socialist (the day after the Nov. 5, 2008 presidential election, we expressed our concern that “we may be installing the first president who openly favors ‘change’ that … can only be described as socialistic”) and then watched as it all came to pass.

Based on the polls, however, many Americans are paying no more attention now than they were two years ago.

The “new Obama” Kool-Aid has gone down so smoothly that a supposed conservative commentator, Ben Stein, thinks the president is the Republican Party’s — yes, the Republican Party’s — best alternative come 2012.
