The US IS NOT Center Right

The pundits are making the same mistake that Obama makes, that the US is politically to the right of center. This was a low turn-out election because there were few left of center choices for people and they are tired of voting for the lesser of two evils, and want to vote for people and policies they believe in, and that make the country work.

Mid-terms are about the base of the parties, and the White House decided to insult the base of the Democratic Party in the run-up to the election, and then was stunned when the base decided to send the message that they wouldn’t work or vote for people who refused to work or vote for them.

Only because I prefer to keep the front page safe for work and she is writing from her core anger, below the fold I have Athenae response, which sums up what I really think about Obama’s first two years.
