So Obama denies that he’s moving rightward towards the middle. Sorry, but I just don’t buy it.
Unlike Obama’s ardent primary campaign supporters, I never thought he was especially liberal. But Obama’s positions on FISA, abortion rights, gun control, faith-based initiatives, and the death penalty are even worse than I suspected. (So far, he’s pretty much where I thought he’d be re ending the war in Iraq — way too slow.)
And now it’s time for a limerick:
By Madeleine Begun Kane
Dear Obama, your flight to the right
Is making me feel quite uptight.
It’s alarming how fast
You’re forsaking the past
And converting to GOP-lite.
