are you farking joking? obama is right of center by any reasonable measure.
 
2012-07-24 08:01:19 AM  
He's not. Next question?

This. The American political system is so far out of whack it's frightening. If you look at the right-wing parties in other countries, they're still farther left than the Democrats are.

Although here in Canada, unfortunately, the Conservatives are taking a page from the US play book. Let's just hope we can realize it before they drag us down the hole too.
 
2012-07-24 08:08:24 AM  
Considered, and rejected. Next?
 
2012-07-24 08:11:12 AM  
Maybe Obama is too far to the right. And Romney is even further than him.
 
2012-07-24 08:14:06 AM  
Hmmmmm, let me consider that for a moment........no.
 
2012-07-24 08:17:12 AM  
Oh wait, you're serious. Let me laugh even harder.

Red State really doesn't want you to know that Obamacare is straight up stolen wholesale from the 1994 GOP health care proposal. That's how far to the left Obama is.
 
2012-07-24 08:17:31 AM  
Done in one.

I certainly wish Obama was further to the left. Also, Romney isn't as far to the right as people may think he is. He's certainly left of W. He's a blue-bloded corporate elitist, but beyond that he stands for nothing socially. He'll change his opinion about anything at all if it means more votes.

I'd be happy if Obama was slightly to the left.

And you can't tell me with any honesty where Romney lies on the spectrum because he refuses to stand on any position.
 
2012-07-24 08:43:14 AM  
If we are to go by Rmoney's record as a Governor he is a little left of Obama. But it is fun watching the tards at redstate wrestle with cognitive dissonance.
 
2012-07-24 08:47:59 AM  
Then perhaps you should consider Mitt Romney's record when he was governor of Massachusetts.
 
2012-07-24 08:52:31 AM  
If you think Obama is too far to the left, you should consider if you're stupid

As president, Mitt will not only appoint an Attorney General who will defend the Defense of Marriage Act - a bipartisan law passed by Congress and signed by President Clinton - but he will also champion a Federal Marriage Amendment to the Constitution defining marriage as between one man and one woman.
 
2012-07-24 09:07:01 AM  
The only think we need to consider at the moment is that RedState is completely partisan and useless.

True, but... Those are facts, and facts don't matter so long as I FEEL and believe that he's the libbiest lib who ever libbed.
 
2012-07-24 09:08:56 AM  
Um... no. No, we should not. Hilariously, if conservatives looked at Romney's record as governor of Massachusetts, he's too far to the left, but Obama sure as fark isn't to the standards of most liberals.
 
2012-07-24 09:14:16 AM  
What's the baseline? If it is France, then everyone is way to the right. if it is the founding fathers, then everyone is way to the left.
 
2012-07-24 09:16:00 AM  
seriously, if you think obama is "too far left," you are either a farking moron or you're so far right you make mussolini look like che guevara.
 
2012-07-24 09:18:02 AM  
Without even RTFA, I know that Redstate and its readers consider Obama to be left of Karl Marx.

Also, like Bloody William said, Romney has in the past run to the left of Obama.
 
2012-07-24 09:20:59 AM  
Yeah... How about no?

Bloody William: Um... no. No, we should not. Hilariously, if conservatives looked at Romney's record as governor of Massachusetts, he's too far to the left, but Obama sure as fark isn't to the standards of most liberals.


What I would like from the Romney people is a moment of candor. Admit that he's not the candidate they want, but at the end of the day will still vote for him because he's GOP. They make Romney into something he's not in order to justify their support of him. And at the same time, claim Obama is the liberal messiah for whom we will vote no matter what.

Obama's disappointed me on a number of things. Mostly domestic security issues (Patriot Act, NDAA, etc.). But on a par, to me, he's superior to Romney and therefore I will vote for him again. Why is that honesty so hard?

No, he's not! he's a filthly librul commie. in fact he's the librulist lib who ever libbed. Even more of a liberal than Libby MyLiberalson.

Just ask any republican, they'll tell you.

Obama is right of Nixon.

Is he too far left? Sure, if he wants the Republican nomination.

I was going to comment, but you've already said everything I would've.
 
2012-07-24 09:45:33 AM  
THIS, ladies and gentlemen, is the problem with "balance" in media. for years, the right, through fox news, talk radio and the blogosphere, has claimed that obama is a socialist. and though this claim is demonstrably and patently false, it has gone unchallenged in the mainstream media due to its obsession with the erroneous concept of "balance" - a concept introduced by fox news in 1996. (the laughably ironic part of the equation, of course, is that fox news itself is about as far from balanced as a network can be.)

the upshot of this is, now a good percentage of the US population believes that obama is a socialist (just like they wrongly believe that the ACA is a 'government takeover of healthcare' and that saddam hussein was behind 9/11).

the electorate is ignorant because the media has utterly failed in its sacred duty as the fourth estate.

They're wayyy more alike than different.

Nope. Not even close.

Anything else you'd like me to consider?
 
2012-07-24 10:23:52 AM  
The problem with this that Romney doesn't fall on any political spectra. His only view is that he should be in charge.

Sleeping Monkey: Anyone who actually believes that Obama is too far to the left is obviously too far to the right.


But don't you remember when Obama wanted to shut down the stock market, bulldoze Wall St and start an organic free range co-op in it's place? Or make killing animals legally murder? And then released every prisoner and personally hugged them all?

Oh wait no that never happened.

US Conservatives have been bitten with a rabid form of racist , misogynistic , bigoted rabies. Everyone they see isn't conservative enough, or is too liberal. Everyone is an enemy in their eyes if they are not in lock step with the party - even the american people, should they not fall into line with their maddened purity mission.

Cull the infection in your government before it truly destroys your country's mind like it has ours. There is hope Canada, do not fall to darkness like we have.

I don't care what side of center he is on. All that matters is that my business (we print yellow pages/white pages) has gone down the tubes since becoming the president that his combination of A)job killing resolutions and B)hatred of small business with lack of "backing us little guys up" has resulted in a year-to-year ever-decreasing orders for telephone directories to the point that we'll be obsolete.

I think Romney's record shows that he would publicly hang homosexuals on the town square if he thought it could get him a net of 1% in the polls from the conservative base. What he privately believes is rather irrelevant, particularly since no one knows.

The guy who signed an extension of the Bush tax cuts.
The guy who signed a health care reform law that used a individual mandate (an idea stolen from Romney and the Heritage Foundation), instead of the single payer that the left wanted.
The guy who continued the war on terror by ordering the killing of bin Laden (who Bush didn't consider worth the effort), and helping to kick Quadaffi out of power (who's been linked to terrorism since the 80's).
The guy who signed a NDAA that would allow indefinite detention of US citizens by the military.

There are tons of videos showing him trying out out everything everyone. The guy is an empty suit. You have to look at who's pushing hardest to get him elected to figure out what his Presidency will be like. Hint: big oil and neoconservatives.

I didn't see any highlights afterward though. Wha Happen? Is your bullpen really that bad? Because whoever your starter was last night was kind of owning us.

From the 25 points plan of the Nazi party

7. We demand that the State shall above all undertake to ensure that every citizen shall have the possibility of living decently and earning a livelihood. If it should not be possible to feed the whole population, then aliens (non-citizens) must be expelled from the Reich.

10.The first duty of every citizen must be to work mentally or physically. No individual shall do any work that offends against the interest of the community to the benefit of all.

12. Since every war imposes on the people fearful sacrifices in blood and treasure, all personal profit arising from the war must be regarded as treason to the people. We therefore demand the total confiscation of all war profits.

13. We demand the nationalization of all trusts.

14. We demand profit-sharing in large industries.

15. We demand a generous increase in old-age pensions.

16. We demand the creation and maintenance of a sound middle-class, the immediate communalization of large stores which will be rented cheaply to small tradespeople, and the strongest consideration must be given to ensure that small traders shall deliver the supplies needed by the State, the provinces and municipalities.

17. We demand an agrarian reform in accordance with our national requirements, and the enactment of a law to expropriate the owners without compensation of any land needed for the common purpose. The abolition of ground rents, and the prohibition of all speculation in land.

18. We demand that ruthless war be waged against those who work to the injury of the common welfare. Traitors, usurers, profiteers, etc., are to be punished with death, regardless of creed or race.

20. In order to make it possible for every capable and industrious German to obtain higher education, and thus the opportunity to reach into positions of leadership, the State must assume the responsibility of organizing thoroughly the entire cultural system of the people. The curricula of all educational establishments shall be adapted to practical life. The conception of the State Idea (science of citizenship) must be taught in the schools from the very beginning. We demand that specially talented children of poor parents, whatever their station or occupation, be educated at the expense of the State.

COMMON GOOD BEFORE INDIVIDUAL GOOD

25. In order to carry out this program we demand: the creation of a strong central authority in the State, the unconditional authority by the political central parliament of the whole State and all its organizations.

If you're a liberal you can pick up your brown shirt and jack boots over there, because conservatives tend to disagree with every single one of those things, now would you like to explain how liberals disagree with them?

I think his record shows that he would say that to anyone who wanted to hear it, if it got him votes. As for actually doing it, I don't think there's any proof that he'll do anything that he says he will.

I can think of only one person in all of Congress that's actually "far left." And he's not a Democrat.


I wouldn't consider Sanders even to be "far left" - I don't see him demanding any government confiscation of production means. There are exactly zero far lefties in Congress whereas the Republican caucus is populated by bona fide fascists.

Karac: The guy who signed an extension of the Bush tax cuts.
The guy who signed a health care reform law that used a individual mandate (an idea stolen from Romney and the Heritage Foundation), instead of the single payer that the left wanted.
The guy who continued the war on terror by ordering the killing of bin Laden (who Bush didn't consider worth the effort), and helping to kick Quadaffi out of power (who's been linked to terrorism since the 80's).
The guy who signed a NDAA that would allow indefinite detention of US citizens by the military.

Clearly, he is a democat leftists' wet dream come true.


Great point. Yet, the cognitive dissonace will continue unabated as millions of useful idiots on the left will head to the polls in November with smug dreamy smiles on their faces to line up to vote for him. I bet fewer than 10% would even know what "NDAA" stands for.

For that matter, I wouldn't consider Dennis Kucinich to be far left, either. Not only did he vote for the health insurance mandate concocted by the conservative Heritage Foundation (even when his vote wasn't "needed"), he also voted yes on HR 347, which criminalizes some form of protests and serves to inhibit such movements as Occupy.

There are always alternatives:

1) Don't vote (see George Carlin's great rant on this)

3) Vote for an anti-establishment Republican with principles like Ron Paul

Someone who thinks a statement like "people who don't care much for the United States" is a "fact" clearly doesn't even know what a fact is.

I know i'll get some hate for this so I'm just going to say it. He's too incompetent to be ultra liberal. If there was ever a President being groomed to be an Ex President and "Elder Statesman", It's him. He's almost like a political Supreme Court Justice. If he survives the second term his legacy will be secure and the Obama library will have a Rahm Emmanuel annex.

It was really disappointing to find out the first black president is so easily manipulated and woefully ineffective. Really nothing more than Hillary's Rubber Stamp.

What has Obama actually DONE that is leftist or socialist?

I'm sick of hearing about who he knew, and what books he read and who he hugged and yadda yadda yadda,.

What has he done? Bulletpoint it if that makes it easier. Should be overwhelmingly obvious and easy to state considering how many Americans think of him as a Marxist Socialist Ultra-Liberal.

Obamacare, an individual mandate which has previously been advocated by the Heritage Foundation, and Republican politicians like Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney.

Obamacare, an individual mandate which has previously been advocated by the Heritage Foundation, and Republican politicians like Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney which is a complete government takeover of 1/6 of the national economy..
