Oh brother, here we go again—the supposed conservative sage at the New York Times (Mr. I-liked-the-crease-in-Obama’s pants) Brooks says again he had Obama all wrong. What is it about these so-called smart guys in places like New York who can’t figure out what the Tea Party country class figured out three years ago?
With nothing more to go on then Obama’s voting record as the MOST liberal Senator in the US Senate at the time, Brooks should have been able to spot a good liar (even with those creases momentarily dazzling him).
Center-right New York Times columnist David Brooks opined a few months ago that President Obama, whom he once supported, was governing like a liberal.
Today, Brooks doubled down, telling Laura Ingraham this morning that Obama is not only governing that way, he is that way — or at least more that way than Brooks once thought.
“I still like him and admire him personally, but he’s certainly more liberal than I thought he was,” Brooks said.
“He’s more liberal than he thinks he is. He thinks he’s just slightly center-left, but when you get down to his instincts, they’re pretty left. And his problem is that he can’t really act on them, because it would be political disaster. And so that means, I think right now he’s doing very little, proposing very little.”
That’s all there is to the article, but go here where the comments are ever so juicy.
