BBC declares Obama a "right wing" social democrat

I guess that would put the likes of JFK and FDR somewhere to the right of Genghis Khan and Attila the Hun.

...Although calling Obama a "socialist" sounds daft to our ears (he's a pretty right wing social democrat), it is exactly how many conservatives see him...
BTW, if you think Piers Morgan is a smarmy clueless imbecile who pegs the meter, you need to follow this BBC oblivioid Mardell for a bit. He'll have you recalibrating your gauges to make room for him on the scale. Pol Pot was probably a left leaning moderate by this guy's standards.
