Obama: ‘I Would Be Considered a Moderate Republican’ in the 1980s

(CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama says he would be “considered a moderate Republican” in the 1980s because his policies are “so mainstream.”

In an interview with Univision 23 on Thursday, a Spanish station based in Miami, the president was asked about the perception among some Americans that he has a socialist vision for the country.

“One issue that Cuban-Americans are worried about is, they believe that you favor a socialist model for our country,” Obama was asked, according to a transcript of the interview compiled by The Hill. “Cubans and Venezuelans especially because of what they have gone through. What do you think of that?”

“I don’t know that there are a lot of Cubans or Venezuelans, Americans who believe that,” Obama replied.

“The truth of the matter is that my policies are so mainstream that if I had set the same policies that I had back in the 1980s, I would be considered a moderate Republican,” he said.

    Why the obfuscatin to the Cuban-Americans and the rest of the Latinos now?

    He certainly is not concerned about midterm elections or any future Democrats.

    Unless he’s about to open the gates to Cuba?

    To one audience Obama is against everything 1980s mainstream republicans stood for and says those things are to blame for our bad economy. To another audience he says he’s so non-socialist he’s a 1980s style republican, exactly what he tells other people were the failed policies of the past that ruined the country.

    There’s only one thing Obama really is – he’s a cheap street corner con man who made it big in the democratic party and lies through his teeth to everybody.

    Unless by “moderate republican” he doesn’t mean 1980s mainstream republicanism but everyone that was in opposition to it.

    Oh yeah, I’m totally a democrat. Yeppers! MMhMMM! I’m one of them Moderate Democrats.

    I lived through the 80s and BO would have been considered a socialist fleck of whale dreck, of the National Socialist branch.

    After Carter, I doubt that this ‘drug addled sodomite imbecile’ would have made it into the Illinois senate.

    Illinois has a penchant for shitty politicians, but back in the 80s they had to be more than a faggot bag man.

    Too bad we don’t have anything, say, research papers doctoral theses or other scholarly works, to test that proposition, Barry. Must be nice having a palace guard and media to keep your slate forever blank…aside from the fig-crunching apes, anyway.

    Throughout The One’s first reign of terror, uh first term, people in all 57 states were trying to prove that he wasn’t born in this country.

    Based on this verbal trip to the Twilight Zone, I’m not THAT convinced that this Dumbo-eared Marxist hails from this PLANET.

    Even if this were true – which it isn’t – you cannot judge today by the standards of yesterday, or vice versa.

    But damn I wish Barry had been in public office during the 80s so Ronaldus Maximus could have taken a crack at this charlatan.
