Obama Continues To Be Indistinguishable From Republicans

January 18th, 2011at 11:27am Posted by Eli

Obama is such a fount of right-wing talking points, I expect him to start demanding to see his own birth certificate any day now…

President Barack Obama said on Tuesday he would order a government-wide review of regulations with the goal of eliminating those that hurt job creation and make the U.S. economy less competitive.

“It’s a review that will help bring order to regulations that have become a patchwork of overlapping rules, the result of tinkering by administrations and legislators of both parties and the influence of special interests in Washington over decades,” Obama wrote.

In an op-ed piece in The Wall Street Journal, Obama said some government regulations have placed “unreasonable burdens on business — burdens that have stifled innovation and have had a chilling effect on growth and jobs.”

(…)

Business leaders say government regulations, including those being written for the healthcare overall and financial reform, have hurt job creation at a time of high unemployment.

So President Hopey Changey hates progressives, is pro-tax cuts, pro-security state, anti-Social Security, anti-workers, anti-transparency, and now anti-regulations.  I’m having a hard time seeing what makes him a Democrat in any meaningful sense of the word.  Then again, maybe that word doesn’t mean what it used to anymore.
