Let’s see: The most radical leftist we’ve ever had in the White House gets re-elected and knows he has cadre of subservient media lapdogs to do his bidding. He’s calling for a massive tax increase, promoting a junk science agenda and plans to promote an incompetent hack as Secretary of State. He plays the class warfare card at every opportunity and we’ve never seen a president work so hard at dividing Americans. But other than that, nobody has any idea if he’ll be “leaning” left.
Saying, “I didn’t get reelected to bask in reelection. I got elected to do work,” President Obama on Wednesday set out his stall for the first months of his second term.
But he gave no clear hint about whether he would tack to the left or to the center now that he has run his last election campaign.
No clear hint? I guess his snotty belligerence toward senators calling for Benghazi hearings gave no clear hint that he’s engaged in a massive cover-up. Really, can anyone be more clueless?
On several big issues, including the fiscal cliff, immigration reform and climate change, the president’s comments at his first press conference since winning a second term in the Oval Office contained enough to buttress arguments both of those who say he is a reflexive left-winger and those who say, rather, that he is a pragmatic deal-maker.
A pragmatic dealmaker? Really? He’s more than happy to drive us off the fiscal cliff and blame the GOP, no doubt with the aid of his media stenographers like this twit. To make her point she quotes a slew of far left college professors who pretend he’s some sort of moderate. Sure, they’re objective observers.
