Naomi Klein discovers B0 was not all she imagined him to be

As Krugman said

If people like Ms. Klein are shocked, shocked that he isnโ€™t the candidate of their fantasies, they have nobody but themselves to blame.”

Here are the signals B0 gave in his book, The Audacity of Hope – before he started to run

“Reagan first appears in Obama’s book on page 31

From that page alone and the beginning of page 32:

“That Reagan’s message found such a receptive audience spoke not only to his skills as a communicator; it also spoke to the failures of liberal government, during a period of economic stagnation, to give middle-class voters any sense that it was fighting for them. For the fact was government at every level had become to cavalier about spending taxpayer money. Too often bureaucracies were oblivious to the cost of their mandates. A lot of liberal rhetoric did seem to value rights and entitlements over duties and responsibilities. Reagan may have exagerrated the sins of the welfare state, and certainly liberals were right to complain that his domestic policies tilted heavily toward elites, with corporate raiders making tidy profits throughout the eighties while unions were busted and the income for the average working stiff flatlined.

Nevertheless, by promising to side with those who worked hard, obeyed the law, cared for their families, loved their country, Reagan offered Americans a sense of common purpose that liberals seemed no longer able to muster.”

Obama also talks about Reagan on pages 31-33, 36, 43, 147, 156-58, 181-82, 201, 209, 288-289, 293.
Another classic from Obama in his book. Pages 156-57

“The conservative revolution Reagan helped usher in gained traction because Reagan’s central insight–that the liberal welfare state had grown complacent and overly bureaucratic, with Democratic policy makers more obsessed with slicing the economic pie than with growing he pie–contained a good deal of truth.”

So, Naomi dear, you should have read his words or at least your own magazine – the Nation itself said Hillary was more progressive than B0
