Oh, Good Grief!… Radical Socialist Obama Says He’d Be Considered a “Moderate Republican” Back in the 1980s

The absolute gall of this man.
Barack Obama told a Miami station that he’d be considered a “moderate Republcian” if he was pushing these same policies back in the 1980s.
The Hill reported:

President Obama said his economic policies are “so mainstream” he’d be considered a moderate Republican in the 1980s.

In a Thursday interview with a Miami-based local television station, Obama said he thinks few people believe he wants to impose socialism on the country.

“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,” he told Noticias Univision 23 in a White House interview.

“I mean, what I believe in is a tax system that is fair,” he continued. “I don’t think government can solve every problem. I think that we should make sure that we’re helping young people go to school. We should make sure that our government is building good roads and bridges and hospitals and airports so that we have a good infrastructure.

Unreal. There is nothing in this man’s background that makes him moderate or Republican.

    And today he is considered an Islamist who is pushing his group the Muslim Brotherhood on the world one country at a time.

  • Ray

    Yeah right. The conservative Republicans of today would be considered moderate Democrats 50 years ago.

  • ★FALCON★

    Clearly the homosexual is deranged and insane. Draw up those impeachment papers.

  • muddywood

    no Barry. You would be considered a communist or just a plain old useful idiot

  • Robert

    “We should make sure that our government is building good roads and bridges and hospitals and airports so that we have a good infrastructure.”

    He didn’t even do that. The “stimulus” went to government employees, NOT infrastructure.

    Obama didn’t build that.

  • Granny

    In the USSR perhaps he would have been considered a “moderate” with his policies. ROFL

  • paul52

    Barry must be gazing in the wrong mirror today. He gives narcissism a bad name.

  • Not Likely

    He’s right. Dim Hoft just can’t accept facts because Dim Hoft has no grasp on reality.

  • Indiana

    Obama has so many personality/mental problems…..he should be in padded room. I believe the MSM keeps promoting Obama…..just to keep chaos on the front page. They are the ones exploiting his incompetence.

    There’s nothing in his past to indicate he’s a man let alone moderate or republican.

  • SeniorD

    Hamiltonians and Marxists (Republicans and Democrats) make up the majority of Congress since Hubert Humphrey died. Jimmy Carter (Hamiltonian/Marxist – Georgia) (who never met a Muslim he didn’t like) was in charge of a huge economic mess so yes, the Marxist Offal Office Occupier (MOO) could be considered ‘moderate’ in comparison. But back then, we weren’t fighting several wars on China’s dime.

    Funny, I don’t remember any moderate Republicans in the 1980s saying their agenda was “fundamentally transforming the United States of America,” or claiming that free-market capitalism as “never worked.”

    I’m unaware of any moderate Republicans in the 1980s who were mentored by a card-carrying Communist, or who spouted revolutionary Marxism in college (and never disavowed those views), or who began their political careers in a party to the left of the Democrats, or who collaborated with a Marxist domestic terrorist, or who appointed Marxists and Mao-admirers to government offices, or who openly scorned constitutional limits on their power, or who aimed to hand over national sovereignty to the U.N.

    Either Barry is deluded or he assumes everyone else is stupid. Or both.

  • Amash

    He’s a Muslim Marxist now and would have been then. Add Chicago thug to that.

  • P. Aaron

    Obama’s so delusional he thinks he can do anything…when in fact he can’t do anything.

  • Look-Out

    Barry, just let us know when you hear these words, “What you are about to do, do quickly”.

    OT — then there’s this…a story I heard on the radio and now see (in more depth) in print, stirring more tears and incomprehension —


    Unless…we’re to do what God calls us to as Christians…tell Him we need Him. Forgiving our enemy is a tall order.

  • All_IS_LOST

    Liar or Delusional…maybe both.

  • cavt

    An thing the dictator says, take the exact opposite and you will have the truth. When you’re whole life is a lie, it becomes mentally impossible to recognize truth.

  • retired militaryq

    He didnt finish the statement.
    He would be considered more moderate than Stalin back in the 80s. Or Kruschev

  • Bigkahuna

    He would have been considered a high school / college pot head and coke head learning he can get away with getting by as a slacker with affirmative action paving they way so you can learn how race hustling and msm fawning over a dick can get you to undeserved heights. You don’t have to work for it. Just use race and class and vote present.

  • CV1

    NO WAY!

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    …or Republican.

    Traditionally, no.

    Compared to today’s Republicans, the gap is certainly a small one.

  • Joe Blow

    I’m beginning to think he is nuts!

  • Questionman

    No, Barack Obama is obviously not a communist. Nor indeed a Marxist, nor a Maoist. After the enormously public failure of communism, he’d be a fool to be – and he isn’t.
    Barack Obama might possibly be a Muslim. But this is not an issue, since there is no law in the USA barring members of a religion from holding a public office.
    Barack Obama is not a pathological liar, although he, quite by necessity and like all other Presidents is a habitual liar. At least he doesn’t start wars with his lies.
    Barack Obama is not a homosexual, as his wife can attest.
    You just a sad, sick, pathetic hateful racist! The people who call our President a socialist use this rhetoric for racist reasons and/or because they’ve never cracked open a book on political theory.

    [soh-shuh-liz-uhm] Show IPA.
    a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole.
    procedure or practice in accordance with this theory.
    (in Marxist theory) the stage following capitalism in the transition of a society to communism, characterized by the imperfect implementation of collectivist principles.

    Based on this definition, what action has the Obama Administration taken that qualifies as socialist?
    Nothing at all, but the frothy mouthed wingers can’t call him another word so they settle for that.

    It’s no mystery here that I’ve been critical of many of Obama’s policies, however, I have spoken out when he has been unfairly characterized or treated by the right-wing media or absurd wing-nuts (some of whom post on this blog) in a variety of ways which contradict each other, and NONE of which Obama is: Liberal, Marxist, Communist, Socialist, A Muslim, anti-American, not American, gay, traitor, Usurper, an Enemy of America, a Racist, a Narcissist, a Liar, and on and on. In an alphabet of lies from the right I posted, I’ve said this fact once, I’ll say it again. The only reason the party of hypocritical louts choose to call Barack Obama a Marxist, Communist, Muslim is for the sole purpose that they cannot call him what they really want to call him, and that is NI@@ER!

    Radical Socialist Obama Says He’d Be Considered a “Moderate Republican” Back in the 1980s

    BUZZZZZZZ. Wrong.

    Obama would have been considered a friend of socialist radicals then – because guess what: he was – just the same as he is now.

  • YourMaster

    arab-gay-communists wouldn’t be allowed in the republican party

    ..but maybe in the USSR

  • Tee Dub

    I wish the liberals would stop defining what a Republican is or was.

    Sorry Barry, the Republicans aren’t too much changed from the 1980’s and if anything a moderate Republican then would be considered a conservative Republican today. I think what you’re you’re driving at is that Republicans have gone waaaay right-wing in the last 30 years. Again you lie and make up s**t just to fit your narrative. Having been a Democrat in 1980, I can tell you the party that’s gone waaay over to one side is the Democrats. A moderate Democrat in the 80’s would be a Republican today. Which is pretty much what a RINO is.

  • if being a communist was considered a moderate republican in the 1980’s this would be true. i was around in the 1980’s, this is not true at all.

    #27…your right the democratic party is the one that has radically changed. the leadership is definitely gone communist. the problem is the rank and file hasn’t got the news.

  • Rose

    He has also compared himself to Reagan and Lincoln and Jefferson.

    The Truth: Obama is a Hitler, a CALIGULA, and a strain of virulent Gangrene, and Sarin Gas.

  • Rose

    #27 & #28 – How has the Democrat Party – born to fight LOSS of rights to own SLAVES, Party of KKK – Party of FDR who created IRS and Income Tax and Central Banking, Federal Reserve against Founding Fathers strong powerful efforts to teach America NEVER to allow, FDR outlawed ownership of GOLD and MELTED all gold coins! CONFISCATED GOLD from Private Citizens – LBJ, “Great Society”…

    Born of Thuggery, VOTE FRAUD, Protectionism Racketeering, and Dictatorship – always have been, STILL ARE!!!

  • Tabby

    This is the same crap I keep hearing from libetards lately. They’re idiots. Liberalism is a mental disorder. Get the book “The Liberal Mind” & you’ll see it’s true.

  • dwdude

    “There is nothing in this man’s background that makes him moderate or Republican.” or qualified to be president, but yet he is
