Another Trash Report from Fake News WaPo: Commie Obama Was a Conservative
America is still reeling from the destructive years of the Barack Obama presidency.
The current Leader of the Free World is STILL under constant attack from the Socialist bureaucrats left inside the government apparatus who believe it is their duty to resist and take down this president.
We saw for two weeks how these elitist members of the US State Department believe they are the decision makers and not this president.
Barack Obama brought the worst economy to the US since the Great Depression.
Barack Obama brought the worst recovery to the US in this nation’s history.
Barack Obama blew up the Middle East, a region that is still torn apart from Obama’s insane foreign policy.
But this weekend fake news WaPo insisted the Barack Obama was a conservative.
The front of Sunday’s Outlook section in The Washington Post is a complete spit take. There in bold type is the blatantly false headline “Barack Obama, conservative.”
David Swerdlick is an employee of the Post’s Outlook section, so this isn’t some freakish freelancer. At first glance, this article seems like an obvious ploy to explain away just how radical the current crop of Democratic presidential candidates are by comparison. Here’s the thesis:
“This is still a country that is less revolutionary than it is interested in improvement.”
That remark helps explain why so many of the candidates’ proposals seem so far to the left of Obama. The former president was skeptical of sweeping change, bullish on markets, sanguine about the use of military force, high on individual responsibility and faithful to a set of old-school personal values. Compare that with proposals from his would-be successors: Medicare-for-all, the Green New Deal, free college, a wealth tax, universal basic income.
Given the political climate, it’s no surprise to see the party’s base clamoring for something dramatic. But the contrast between Obama’s steady approach and the seeming radicalism of his Democratic heirs can’t just be chalked up to changing times. It’s because the former president, going back at least to his 2004 Senate race, hasn’t really occupied the left side of the ideological spectrum. He wasn’t a Republican, obviously: He never professed a desire to starve the federal government, and he opposed the Iraq War, which the GOP overwhelmingly supported. But to the dismay of many on the left, and to the continuing disbelief of many on the right, Obama never dramatically departed from the approach of presidents who came before him.
