Cornell West: Obama is a “Rockefeller Republican”

Far from being the left-wing socialist the the Fox News crowd portray him as, I have argued in the past that Barack Obama has governed as a moderate republican. For further proof, look to his disenfranchised progressive supporters. Cornell West:

We cannot simply ignore the criticisms of progressives just because there is a “D” after Barack Obama’s name. If the far right claims he is a Marxist while the left claims he is a sellout, where does that leave us when we categorize the President? I still argue moderate Republican. Andrew Sullivan would argue Tory. Either way, he is far from the caricature the right wing media complex would have you believe.
