Why I Am Not A Progressive/LiberalAugust 21, 2009 at 3:18 pm | Posted in American politics | Leave a comment
Because I don’t think like this. Essentially, liberals and progressives keep thinking Barack Obama is some liberal when he is not. He has always been a centrist, so he’s gonna piss off liberals and progressives on things. The reason why hardcore conservatives never lost faith in George W. Bush was because he was their guy. Liberals and progressives don’t have a guy as president. They probably never will. I certainly don’t trust Obama to 1) keep his word 2) use his powers as president for only good things 3) be completely honest. But to this point, he is doing generally what I want him to do as president. So I’m alright with him.
