I’m So Old I Remember When Calling Obama ‘Progressive’ Was Racist

Don’t worry, Charles M. Blow says it’s all good now.
President Obama’s Inaugural Address was an unapologetic, unequivocal progressive manifesto of domestic policies.
I needed that.
The president wasted no time on hollow talk about fixing a broken Washington or taking on the toxic tone in our politics.
Wait, “hollow talk”? Wasn’t that ostensibly the entire reason he was elected the first time, Hope and Changers?
Yesterday, Ace of Spades HQ had a fantastic post about the MSM’s sudden willingness to abandon the “Obama is a centrist” fairy tale they’ve been selling for the past four years now that his inauguration is over. And it only took them a couple of minutes to do that.
Calling him a liberal has always been somewhat acceptable outside of the sycophant press, but referring to him as progressive or socialist has usually been met with a full deck of Race Cards (believe me, I’ve got truckloads of experience). Then again, calling the Affordable Care Act “Obamacare” was once racist too. The President calls it that now.
So…either we never were racist or they’ve all become racists.
Four more years.
