Obama Not So Moderate

I think he’ll be hearing more about this should Barack Obama win the Democratic nomination:

Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., was the most liberal senator in 2007, according to National Journal’s 27th annual vote ratings. The insurgent presidential candidate shifted further to the left last year in the run-up to the primaries, after ranking as the 16th- and 10th-most-liberal during his first two years in the Senate.

The reality of Barack Obama cannot live up to the myth. So far no one has called him out on his actual policy positions, and thus most Americans are not aware of how far to the left he is. As the election season progresses that will change.
