Liberals, liberals, everywhere
According to National Journal’s ratings, Barack Hussein Obama was the most liberal of all US senators in 2007. Hillary was ranked 16th. Those conservatives who are thinking an Obama presidency would be better than a Hillary one better think again. On the Republican side, we have John McCain, who didn’t even vote enough last year to be ranked but was able to pull off a 56% conservative voting record from the same group in 2006. In other words, he votes liberal 44% of the time. Then we have Mitt Romney, who switched to the conservative position just in time to run for president, and Mike Huckabee, who is a social conservative but also a fiscal and national security liberal. (Of course, there’s also Ron Paul, who has a 60% conservative rating–voting libertarian, which ends up putting him on the same side as liberals 40% of the time). Where, oh where, is a conservative supposed to go?
