Barack Obama Freebie: “Richard Nixon Was More Liberal Than I Was” (Video)

Oh brother.
President Barack Obama told Bill O’Reilly that Richard Nixon was more liberal than he was. Obama also said his administration had not massively expanded the welfare state.

Bill O’Reilly: Are you the most liberal president in US history?

Barack Obama: Probably not. You know the truth of the matter is that when you look at some of my policies in a lot of ways Richard Nixon was more liberal than I was. He started the EPA. He started a whole lot of our regulatory that kept our air and water clean…

Bill O’Reilly: I think you are much more friendly to a nanny state than I am. I’m more of a self reliance guy. You’re more of a big government will solve your problems guy.

Barack Obama: Welfare is worth less now than it was under Ronald Reagan… Bill, the point is, we have not massively expanded the welfare state.

For the record:
ibd obama food stamps
There are more Americans on food stamps today than the population of Spain.

More Americans are living in poverty under Obama than the population of Argentina.
