So Now Time Tells Us: Obama The New FDR
Remember back during the campaign, when the Obama folks and their MSM cohorts adamantly denied that their man was a liberal? That National Journal study that ranked him the most liberal senator? Nonsense! Very misleading. After all, this is the man who doesn't believe in a red America and a blue America, but in the United States of America. Someone with a history of reaching across partisan lines [even if no good examples were handy at the moment].
So . . . remember all that? Well, forget it. Now that Obama is safely
ensconced in his Office of the President-Elect, the MSM can let the
[ill-concealed to many of us] cat out of the bag: yes, he's a liberal. Big time! In fact, Obama is nothing less than the second coming of the biggest American liberal icon of all time: FDR! Rick Stengel announced the news on today's Morning Joe.
The Time editor proudly unveiled the magazine's new cover, which portrays a photo-shopped Obama from that iconic photo of a jaunty FDR in his convertible, hand on the wheel and cigarette holder in place. With "Happy Days Are Here Again" playing merrily in the background, Stengel discussed the cover story, entitled "The New New Deal."
RICK STENGEL: It's the New New Deal, and it's Barack Obama as FDR, obviously. And it's about how he could forge a Democratic majority, a liberal majority, not unlike what FDR did.
Stengel went on to say that if Obama plays his cards right, he can build a liberal power structure that will rule for as long as did FDR's. Thanks for letting the American public know now, Rick!
