|Obama supporters are ludicrous|

For months now I've heard Obama supporters/defenders talk about how hyperbolic the claims are from the Right regarding Obama the Leftwing radical. For instance, I hear Obama supporters, in response to gun control issues, make the case that Obama has done nothing to threaten the second amendment. Obama supporters, when the issue of taxes arises, claim Obama has cut taxes, and that if he raises taxes it will be only a small amount equivalent to the Clinton years. When the question of liberal anti-military, dovishness comes up, Obama supporters foam at the mouth proclaiming the toughness shown by Obama, the Great Warrior Chief, as he shot bin Laden in the eye and has killed one terrorist after another with precision drones. When critics on the Right attack Obama's welfare expansion, Obama supporters talk about state services which have been cut and how America's welfare state is meager compared to Sweden and Denmark. When the religious Right complains about Obama's anti-Christian attitude, Obama supporters assure us that he is a true Christian who believes in a personal God who can affect our lives. You would think that the Left has adopted conservative principles and is making the case that Obama is the true conservative in the race for President. When proponents for oil drilling castigate Obama for creating obstacles to oil drilling, Obama's minions show how oil drilling is increasing as they beam with pride. Obama supporters support these claims of his conservative prowess with gusto.
This is either a transformation that no one expected -- Obama goes from Progressive/Social Democrat to Super Conservative -- or it's a ploy to deflect criticism regarding Obama's Leftist views. The first option is incredible, so let's look at the second option: are Obama supporters conceding that conservative principles are superior? Why would Obama's supporters paint him as a conservative unless they think that the principles of social democracy are rejected by Americans? The funny thing is that at times Obama pulls off the mask and shows the public exactly who he is and what he supports, but then when he's criticized for proposing the principles of social democracy, the operatives and pundits, and Obama himself, quickly deny the Leftist views and go back to presenting conservative accomplishments. It's ludicrous. What do the honest Leftists think about this? I don't hear any loud, influential voices calling out Obama and his supporters. Why would the true Left support Obama if he thinks he has to play Super Conservative? Is the Left completely cynical politically? Obama has chosen to publically reject a full embrace of social democracy because he doesn't think he will be re-elected if he's honest, so we will have to put up with this ludicrous charade a little while longer. Is it really fooling anyone? Really?
