So I started to wonder exactly why I had the perception that Obama was "pretty far left".
Hence this Top 10 signs Obama is a lefty list:
10. His incessant pandering to unions
9. His child-like love for high speed rail
8. His pushing for subsidies for solar, wind, & ethanol (i.e. uneconomic boondoggles).
7. His refusal to understand that electric cars actually burn coal in many parts of the country!
6. His firm belief that a small group of experts can competently run the economy
5. The amazing growth in the Federal budget under his watch
4. His habit of flip-flopping like a boated marlin
3. His inability to consider issues of moral hazard or unintended consequences in policymaking
2. His belief that anyone who disagrees with him is stupid or evil or both
1. His overall superior, moralistic, and condescending attitude
