The following quote underscores the insanity of the far-right’s arguments, especially since election day:
“Barack Obama is the most left-wing president in my lifetime.”
That’s a quote by Jonathan Krohn.
The Conserva-Tot from CPAC who just turned 14-years-old.
Much like this kid’s statement, most of the arguments from the far-right have that bumper sticker quality, but ultimately fail the reality test. The “Obama Recession.” “We want him to fail.” “Tea Bag the Liberal Dems before they Tea Bag You.” “Your Mortgage Is Not My Problem.” “Going Galt.” “Obama is a socialist.” And on and on.
Modern conservatism is a vacuous pseudo-politics suitable only for those with the intellectual maturity of a 14-year old boy. Literally.
