Media Admits Obama Is Liberal Upon His Swearing in for a Second Term (and Not a Moment Before)

Remember Obama the Centrist, the story the media sold the public for four years?

Now that he's won a second time, they don't have to lie anymore, and they're now conceding he's a liberal.

But if this is new information to them, where are the stories in which they trace Obama's evolution into a liberal? Or their own apologies for, and anger over, being hoodwinked for six years?

Of course this is not new information to them; they knew Obama was a liberal at the same time we did, back when we first heard of him, in 2004. In fact, he was the Great Liberal Hope.

They just lied about it. And now, without apology or explanation, they drop the pretense of Obama the Centrist.

Incidentally, part of the reason they're doing this is to argue that the nation is now center-left, that the nation has been won over to the liberal cause.

But how can that be, since Obama claimed to not be a liberal, and claimed he was not running as a liberal, but as a centrist? And how can that be, since the media attacked anyone claiming otherwise?

I was struck by Chuck Todd yesterday, now telling us Obama is a liberal crusader, only moments after he was sworn in as president for a second term.

Something he would have called you a "racist" or "ideologue" for claiming just moments before.

Not a single person in the media will acknowledge this, of course.
