President Obama Reborn as a Centrist

Monday, January 24, 2011

President Obama’s campaign for re-election in 2012 is now officially on. David Axelrod and Robert Gibbs are leaving the White House to work up strategy. Yes, I know, Obama has never stopped campaigning from the first day he announced in February 2007.

The Democrats took a drubbing in the mid terms and Obama suddenly got religion. He’s copying the playbook of former President Bill Clinton and “moving to the center”.

Obama’s State of the Union Address on Tuesday evening will press a centrist agenda. In a video preview Obama said, “My No. 1 focus,” “is going to be making sure that we are competitive, and we are creating jobs not just now but well into the future.”

President Obama said the same thing in last year’s SOTU, “That is why jobs must be our number-one focus in 2010, and that’s why I’m calling for a new jobs bill tonight.” Unemployment was at 9.7%. It has ticked down to about 9.4%, so his promise has failed.

Obama will also endorse government “investment” — just another word for more spending.

The media and cable pundits have embraced Obama’s centrist act. Worse than that, so has the electorate, as his approval ratings are now above water.

President Barack Obama will say anything to remain in power, even if he doesn’t mean it. Let me remind you that Barack Obama is still the hard leftist that he has always been.

Obama did not sit in the pews of Reverend Wright’s church for twenty years and not hear or agree with what the Rev. was spewing.

While serving in the state of Illinois Senate, Barack Obama voted “Present” 130 times. Obama supports and voted for infanticide, which means that a baby is left to die if born alive after an attempted abortion.

Barack Obama believes in redistributing the wealth and altering the Constitution to achieve it, as he said in a radio interview in 2001.

The most convincing proof is to just look at the massive government intervention that he has enacted in the last two years; the Stimulus, the take over of banks, the auto industry and ObamaCare.

On Tuesday night, listen to all of Obama’s rhetoric and pandering to the middle, while he makes many boasts and promises that he he cannot fulfill. All of his words said only to get him re-elected in 2012.

We citizens, however have the last word and we say, no way, no how.
