Sarah Baxter of the London Times is outraged that Republicans are out to crush Barack by painting him as a leftwinger with dubious support.
If Barack wins thereafter the presidency of the United States, he will be the first leftist politician in that country and another signal of the present and future times in this continent.
At least Baxter managed to mention about Obama:
He was recently judged by the nonpartisan National Journal to have the most liberal voting record in 2007 of any senator.
Obama’s connection to George Soros, his support from MoveOn.org and the Third Way, and Obama’s own economic plan, which calls for an ever-increasing larger role of government in the economy, all point to a leftist agenda which is reflected on his voting record. Macsmind posts about Obama’s International Socialist Connections.
Of course, Obama’s supporters are all for that,
Patrick Murphy, a Democratic congressman and Iraq war veteran, said: “I’m proud to be a fiscal conservative and, in my opinion, Obama is a moderate. He wants to partner with businesses and corporations.”
…while taxing the heck out of them. I still haven’t figured out how Austan Gools-bee, who purportedly supports free markets, matches his free-market ideas with Obama’s economic plan.
He also believes Obama will withdraw responsibly from Iraq. “He has laid out a timetable for a ‘pull out and strike strategy’ – pull the troops to the border and strike against Al-Qaeda.”
Obama has repeatedly said that he wants us to pull out of Iraq immediately, or, as GM Roper calls it, coitus-Iraqus interruptus.
Baxter is outraged that the Republicans are portraying Obama as leftist, even when his own voting record and the foreign press acknowledge that he is. Why the outrage, Sarah?
