Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Quote of the day, “I’m REALLY not a leftist!” edition

This is a real knee-slapper!  Excerpt:

“I am not an ideologue,” President Obama insisted at his truly refreshing confab with the Republican caucus in Baltimore last Friday. When he heard some incredulous murmurs and chuckles from the audience in response to the idea that the most sincerely ideological president in a generation is no ideologue, he added a somewhat plaintive, “I’m not.”

The evidence offered that Obama is no ideologue rests almost entirely on two contentions: He has annoyed some members of his ideological base, and because he says so.

That’s what chapped my posterior more than anything about the 2008 election.  Any sentient being could look at B.O.’s skimpy voting record (the votes that weren’t “present”) and see that virtually every single position he took was not just on the left, but on the far left.  He had no proof whatsoever that he had ever been “pragmatic”, bipartisan, or anything other than a leftist ideologue.

Yet when he was speaking his flowery rhetoric (and, as Reid pointed out, “without a Negro dialect”) on the campaign trail about reaching out, finding the proper answers and not the left or right answers, about purple states and not red or blue ones, normal Americans like myself howled in incredulous laughter.  He had never been a pragmatic politician, and his record conveyed that clearly.  Yet because he was such an unknown, people could project their ideals on him without a frame of reference.

Well, guess what?  You have a frame of reference now, America, and it is the Marxist in the Oval Office.  How’s that Hopenchange working for you now, huh?
