Barack Obama has Rick Warren at his inauguration and liberals flip out. Don’t be surprised if the reaction to this is similar,
The president-elect tonight is having dinner with some ideological adversaries: four of the most widely-read conservative columnists.
He’s dining at the Chevy Chase home of Washington Post columnist George Will with the Post’s Charles Krauthammer and the New York Times’s David Brooks and William Kristol. All three wrote, at times, both kind and scathing things about Obama, though Kristol in particular pushed sharp attack lines against him in the waning days of the race.
First Warren, now some right-of-center inside-the-Beltway pundits (and David Brooks, who isn’t conservative by any stretch of the imagination).
What does it mean?
Well, note that Obama certainly isn’t proposing any conservative policies.
Instead, he’s making a P.R. move by making meaningless nods to the right so that when he supports policies that Lenin would blanch at, he can come back and say, “Sure, I ran a trillion dollar deficit, got rid of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’ and stopped the building of the border fence — but I ate dinner with George Will! See? It all balances out! I’m a moderate!
Obama is a corrupt, hopelessly dishonest, far left-wing weasel right down to his core and chowing down with a few columnists isn’t going to change his nature.
