Barack Obama Ashamed of Being a Liberal !!!

I kid you not!

President George H. W. Bush really left a gaping wound on the Democrat Party when he crushed Dud-kakis with it in 1988.

AUSTIN, Texas – In his radio and TV ads that are blanketing Texas, Barack Obama claims a chief executive can make more money “in 10 minutes” than an ordinary worker makes in a year. Obama wants to end the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, enact a national health plan, offer a $4,000-a-year tuition reimbursement in exchange for national service, and have the government intervene to prevent home foreclosures.

But he doesn’t want anyone to call him a liberal.

For despite Obama’s vow to build a working majority for change – to win a clear mandate for his progressive agenda, rather than engage in Clinton-like “triangulation” – he’s not yet willing to own the l-word.

Obama seems to have calculated that such labels can be distracting – that some voters have negative associations with the term liberal that obscures their support for such Democratic priorities as affordable healthcare and higher education for all.

At least Obama knows that truth would kill his campaign for President just as surely as it did the Dud-kakis Campaign.

Since he is the presumptive Democrat Nominee…I need to give him a nickname to go with the Hilda Beast for Hillary, and McQeeg for McCain. I will open the floor for suggestions.
