Barack Obama: The Democrats’ Richard Nixon?

Liberals hoped that Obama would overturn conservative policies and launch a new era of government activism. Although Republicans routinely accuse him of being a socialist, an honest examination of his presidency must conclude that he has in fact been moderately conservative to exactly the same degree that Nixon was moderately liberal.

Here are a few examples of Obama's effective conservatism:

His stimulus bill was half the size that his advisers thought necessary;
He continued Bush’s war and national security policies without change and even retained Bush’s defense secretary;
He put forward a health plan almost identical to those that had been supported by Republicans such as Mitt Romney in the recent past, pointedly rejecting the single-payer option favored by liberals;
He caved to conservative demands that the Bush tax cuts be extended without getting any quid pro quo whatsoever;
And in the past few weeks he has supported deficit reductions that go far beyond those offered by Republicans.

Further evidence can be found in the writings of outspoken liberals such as New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, who has condemned Obama’s conservatism ever since he took office.

Conservatives will, of course, scoff at the idea of Obama being any sort of conservative, just as liberals scoffed at Nixon being any kind of liberal. But with the benefit of historical hindsight, it’s now obvious that Nixon was indeed a moderate liberal in practice. And with the passage of time, it’s increasingly obvious that Clinton was essentially an Eisenhower Republican. It may take 20 years before Obama’s basic conservatism is widely accepted as well, but it’s a fact.

Another right whiner who has never managed squat.

Companies hire people to do jobs. They constantly strive for efficiency.

To think that a company would hire more people because they could pay them less is ridiculous.

The right whiner stance on this is to think people should make less & less & then when full time employees at these low wages still qualify for government programs or fall below the minimum to pay federal income taxes, you call them lazy moochers.

Tea Party Tells Fox News To 'Stop Screwing Around,' Boycotts Conservative Network For Being Too Liberal

At first glance it reads like a headline out of the Onion, but according to some members of the Tea Party, the Fox News Channel is just not conservative enough.

A faction of the Tea Party movement known as the Fire Ants held its second boycott of the cable network over the weekend. The “Turn Right” boycott, which took place Thursday through Sunday, was organized via a blog called Benghazi-Truth, whose author claims that Fox News has “essentially abandoned” its conservative viewers and shifted its reporting too far to the left.

“The message [is] loud and clear to FOX,” the blog says of the boycott.“‘Stop screwing around and start serving your core audience, or your core audience will take their business elsewhere.’”

Benghazi-Truth is written anonymously under a profile named Proe Graphique. A Twitter user attached to the same blog uses the handle @FrankMDavisJR. Graphique writes that the Tea Party Fire Ants are disappointed with Fox’s “truly pathetic” reporting on the Benghazi attack and subsequent investigation.“I remain convinced, now, as do many others, that Obama wanted the people in Benghazi dead,” the blogger states.

The blogger also believes that Fox did not diligently investigate the issue of President Barack Obama’s citizenship, despite the fact that Obama made his birth certificate public in 2011 and a PDF copy of the document remains available to view on the White House website.“Obama’s birth certificate is a fake,” Graphique writes.“We want you (Fox News) to report it every night, interview experts, ask why and investigate how and why this happened.”

you can't get into the White House because of the sequester, but Malia and Moolia (or whatever their names are), are vacationing in the Bahamas. the cost of that is worth how many WH tours?

BTW, the study you failed to mention was done from a front group for the hotel & restaurant association. Lobbyists.

Gee, I wonder, Would lower minimum wages benefit their corporate clients???

This is why you remain so uninformed.

You read a story & have no clue as to who wrote it & who dod the studies.

As spring break begins for schoolchildren across the country, thousands of students will travel to Washington, DC. The trips, funded by bake sales and other events throughout the year, will allow the students to take in Washington's historic landmarks.

One premier destination is off-limits this year, however. A few weeks ago, the Obama Administration announced it was suspending public, self-guided tours of the White House as a result of the automatic sequester cuts that the administration proposed in 2011. While America's students stand outside the White House fence, the First Daughters, Sasha and Malia, are enjoying spring break with friends at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas.

Breitbart News' Matt Boyle broke the news Monday morning that numerous sources have reported seeing the First Daughters in the Bahamas this weekend. Presumably, the Obamas are paying the costs of the resort out of their own pockets. THE ROBUST SECRET SERVICE DETAIL THAT MUST ACCOMPANY THE FIRST DAUGHTERS, HOWEVER, IS FUNDED BY TAXPAYERS.

THE PRINCIPAL REASON THE WHITE HOUSE CANCELED PUBLIC TOURS WAS TO SAVE MONEY ON SECRET SERVICE STAFF.

The White House reported that suspending the tours would save $74,000 a week. Other reports have put the savings at just $18,000 a week.

Whichever the true amount, the Secret Service detail necessary to protect the First Daughters on their spring break could likely have been used to keep the White House open to the rest of America's school children. Judicial Watch reported that Malia Obama's Spring Break in Mexico last year cost taxpayers over $115,000. That amount would cover 2-6 weeks of White House tours.

At the very least, it would ensure that, this spring break, thousands of America's students could cap their trip to DC with a uniquely American tradition--a tour of the White House.
