‘Obama the Moderate’ Myth

Posted on | February 14, 2011 | 3 Comments

CNN spins it:

President Barack Obama’s proposed $3.7 trillion budget was slammed by the left and the right Monday. Outraged liberals called it a callous assault on the poor; dismissive conservatives labeled it a debt-riddled assault on future generations.
Which begs the question: Is Obama’s budget blueprint exactly what the president needs to capture the broad political center in the runup to 2012?

CNN’s Alan Silverleib clearly intends to signal that the answer is “yes,” which is the entire point of asking the question. Expect to see many further reiterations of this bogus theme in coming weeks, as the MSM poseĀ their flexible “Moderate Obama” presidential action figure as a super-hero standing guard against “extremism” of all kinds.
