Before the election we weren't aloud to call Obama "liberal" --that was deemed "histrionics" by the MSM and the DNC talking heads. But now even Maureen Down and Bob Beckel toss around the L-word when referring to the President. Personally, I like to think of his as a Passive-Aggressive Progressive.
"Forty-eight percent (48%) of U.S. voters now regard President Obama’s political views as extreme. Forty-two percent (42%) place his views in the mainstream, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.
By comparison, 51% see the views of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as mainstream. Thirty-five percent (35%) think Clinton’s views are extreme. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided..." (source)
All the President's men must know that it's bad when not only are the continually having to remind the American people that Barack IS NOT a Muslim ("not that there's anything wrong with that"), but now the majority of the public think that Obama is "extreme" and Hillary is "mainstream." Maybe that was Hillary's plan all along. Use Obama to make her look "mainstream."
What will she do with the political clout she is recapturing? Will she wait it out until 2016 when she'll be almost 70? Will she replace Biden as Veep or will go for the gold and challenge Obama in 2012?
