For the record, Obama is no moderate

Senator Obama attempts to present himself as "post-partisan" and moderate. But he is not.

This is a candidate who has a more liberal voting record than Hillary Clinton. (Or any member of the Senate for that matter.)

Senator Obama likes to throw around the whole "McCain voted the same way as Bush 90 percent of the time" claim. I'm skeptical of the facts behind that because Presidents don't vote in the Senate ... but, if you are giving weight to the report that came to that conclusion, consider for a moment that it also shows that Senator Obama voted with fellow Democrats in the Senate 97 percent of the time.

That's voting 97% percent of the time with the party that, in it's two years of control over the Congress, has brought the approval rating of the Congress to its lowest levels in history (which stands right now around 14%).

It confuses me to no end that voters apparently want to send even more Democrats to the Congress and give Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi a president of the same party who won't get in the way of their extreme, left-of-center, agenda.

Does the average American really believe in redistribution and "spreading the wealth around"? I really hope not.
