Political Labels: Obama Gets One Right – Just Not The Way he Thinks
One of the primary reasons we have such trouble discussing politics in this nation is because we understand so little about politics. For instance: how many of us really understand what “Left” and “Right” mean in American politics? And how many of those understand that it means something entirely different in Europe? Wouldn’t you expect someone like the President of the United States to know the difference? Well, apparently, he either doesn’t know it, or he is deliberately trying to deceive people again. Here’s the story:
Obama Says He’d Be Considered ‘Maybe Center-Right’ in Parts of Europe
“You know, I have to say that if I were here in Europe, I’d probably be considered right in the middle, maybe center-left, maybe center-right, depending on the country,” Obama said Wednesday in Stockholm. “In the United States sometimes the — the names I’m called are quite different.”

“the names I’m called are quite different.”
The names I hear people call him have very little to do with left or right.
Um, he’s that ignorant of political history; The absence of the teleprompter proves it.
Are you sure…??? After all, this man is a political animal who has been raised in an environment lead by political sharks.
Oh, please, B. We honestly know nothing of the leader of the “free” world.
I disagree. We know quite a bit — IF we accept that a tree is known by its fruit, that is.
He’s been trained by the best, 100% committed, released on the World and minds his masters without reservation. The US has to fall for progress to continue. We are well on our way.
If only more Americans understood that you are not exaggerating: they DO believe the US must fall before they can ‘create’ their ‘progress.’
its the Republicans who want the country to fail, as that is the only way they will ever regain the white house.
Obama is speaking to 2 different audiences with the same words. Words with different meanings for different people’s understanding
Obama is being honest and dishonest at the same time.
Obama understands his words are misleading to the purposely mis-informed and indoctrinated American educated peoples. In that aspect he lies.
However, at the same time, Obama is speaking to his knowledgeable followers, just as Woodrow Wilson wrote & taught, explaining to the “elite and faithful followers of Marxism/progressivism”, I’m “right” where I’m supposed to be… 😉
Evil is as evil does. . .
It is those that seek to impose a one world dictatorship that want the country to fail. By and large this group is made up of progressive Democrats and Republicans. You can tell which one’s because they are all in favor more government control, are immoral on social issues and will lie or do anything to others to push their agenda. They are all godless, humanistic creatures with a dead heart.
Their favorite tools are envy, greed and lust. They use these tools to spread hatred between the people, to polarize one group against another, buy the support of others of low moral character to get elected and steal for those of us that detest them by imposing burdensome regulations and taxes.
We are now like the Roman Empire just before it’s final collapse. One hundred million are lining up daily for their free bread (all forms of government largesse), ungodly TV, movies and sports entertainment are our gladiators and sinful activities have been reclassified as normal behavior.
