Noam Chomsky: Democratic Party Centrism Risks Handing Election to Trump

Barack Obama, conservative
The left and the right still misunderstand his politics.
Given the political climate, it’s no surprise to see the party’s base clamoring for something dramatic. But the contrast between Obama’s steady approach and the seeming radicalism of his Democratic heirs can’t just be chalked up to changing times. It’s because the former president, going back at least to his 2004 Senate race, hasn’t really occupied the left side of the ideological spectrum. He wasn’t a Republican, obviously: He never professed a desire to starve the federal government, and he opposed the Iraq War, which the GOP overwhelmingly supported. But to the dismay of many on the left, and to the continuing disbelief of many on the right, Obama never dramatically departed from the approach of presidents who came before him.

There’s a simple reason: Barack Obama is a conservative.

Au contraire, thank God he had dark skin and he managed to anger people while maintaining full decorum and acting like the most refined, civilized person you could imagine.    Obama's value as a role model —  for everybody — is difficult to fully grasp.

There are a number of things I didn't like about Obama's policies and think he shouldn't have rolled over to Mitch McConnell so easily. but he was an inspiring leader.


I actually think Johnson wasn't too bad except for that Vietnam thing

Maybe, I certainly hope not or we are in trouble indeed.   It is a double edged sword.  He was overly praised and overly criticized because of the color of his skin and the extreme partisan nature of our politics.  I thought he was a pretty good President overall, said the right thing, wore a tux well, looked regal and had a good photographer and what not,   but that is damning with faint praise considering I think that most of our President's suck due to the nature of the job and the process it takes to get there.

Canadians  really liked Obama.  The affection and respect were genuine. 

If Canadians really like an American president, maybe that is a good reason for many American voters to strongly dislike the president.

Think of it as the Canadian political kiss of death.    Not as bad as direct Russian interference but almost as toxic.

Obama warns Democrats against going too far left: ‘We have to be rooted in reality’
In an unusual address to a room of wealthy Democratic donors, Obama urged Democratic candidates to be pragmatic in their messages to voters. While he didn’t mention any specific presidential primary candidate or proposal, Obama warned that the average American voter does not align with views from “certain left-leaning Twitter feeds or the activist wing of our party.”

Some good stuff there. Like the forward thinking, but we are trapped in yesterday's solutions with the front runners.  In addition or perhaps instead of a VAT, I'd like to see a much more aggressive estate tax, above certain thresholds. Once they're off to the next plane of existence, put the bulk of a billionaires winning back into the pot, and redistribute back to all citizens (like yang's plan).
