Quote of the Day: Jeff Perren on Obambi [updated]

Pragmatist or ideologue? That is the question being asked about Obama. Says Jeff Perren at Shaving Leviathan:

It certainly seems Obama is a pragmatist, given how he careens from crisis to crisis. Yet, there is an internal consistency to his positions — all of them hard Left — that suggests there is indeed a driving ‘ideology’ behind them.”

Evidence in abundance here.

UPDATE: Evil or stupid? That was the question Gus Van Horn was asking back in March. Now Drudge appears to confirm it's the former:

As the summer begins, White House watchers have spotted a new look by President Obama: The Evil Eye!
Staffers have joked about the menacing glance, which comes when the president meets with world leaders who are not aligned with his progressive view.
White House photographers have captured the "evil eye" in recent weeks, during sessions with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Colombia's Alvaro Uribev.
Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi got hit with the commander's malocchio last week in the Oval office.
And at least one White House reporter has been on the receiving end of the daggers during a press conference.


Further substantive evidence [hat tip Gus Van Horn again]: Recently, Myrhaf successfully predicted that Obama would choose the wrong side in the so-called coup in Honduras and afterwards, Alan Sullivan commented that in explicitly aligning the US with Castro and Chavez "Obama’s true affinities are now exposed for all to see."

  1. Obama, makes Nixon looks good.

    It's not like during the campaign voters weren't aware of his evil side.
