"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Are You Kidding Me?! Obama Describes Himself as a Blue Dog Democrat

Obama's idea of fiscal conservatism

Here's a fine example of the Left's those-stupid-Americans-will-buy-anything-we-say-in-the-media attitude.

"This excerpt from a piece by the New York Times' Matt Bai caught my eye: (emphasis added)

"'The body of Mr. Obama's writing and experiences before he became a presidential candidate would suggest that he is instinctively pragmatic, typical of an emerging generation that sees all political dogma -- be it '60s liberalism or '80s conservatism -- as anachronistic. Privately, Mr. Obama has described himself, at times, as essentially a Blue Dog Democrat, referring to the shrinking caucus of fiscally conservative members of the party.'"

As Glenn Reynolds said: "rebranding."

Yes. Some Democrats really believe that the president who has spent more than $2 trillion dollars on items such as political payoff... er, I mean economic stimulus... and ObamaCare can be relabeled as "fiscally conservative."

Oh, but that's right... "Bush's recession" (which was absolutely not caused by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac's bad loans) forced Obama to impose $787 billion dollars in pork and payoffs and jam through ObamaCare with parliamentary tricks. I forgot. How silly of me. I mean Obama didn't want to do it-- but he had to. Right...

Doublethink anyone?


  1. I'm expecting him to declare himself a republican next . . . then a Tea Party candidate for 2012. The man's a complete loser.
