(FLP Pundit) - Nearly a full week removed from the Scott Brown victory in Massachusetts, one thing has become clear - Barrack Obama will not be moving to the political center. In fact, by all indications from the Sunday talk shows, he will remain on the far-left fringes and continue pushing for legislation that the country has indicated through polls and recent elections it has no interest in seeing passed.
Another clear sign of Obama's intention to continue pushing a socialist agenda is the hiring of his former campaign manager David Plouffe. In a Sunday Washington Post editorial, Plouffe outlined a going-forward strategy that was devoid of any course correction, but instead focused on continuing to fight for a liberal agenda that the public has rejected.
Unlike the more pragmatic Bill Clinton who made a swift move to the center after the disastrous 1994 mid-terms that saw Republicans take control of Congress, the ideologue Obama seems far more intent on passing signature legislation at the possible expense of both his re-election and that of his fellow Democrats.
This foolish refusal to listen to the will of the people will virtually assure that Democrats will be decimated in the mid-terms, not to mention the Democrat caucus members who will decide to flock to the GOP before taking a sure electoral loss. While this outcome would certainly be good news for conservatives and the GOP, it would be very bad news if Obama were somehow successful in getting any of this leftist dreck passed before he and his minions are shown the door.
That being said, it is critical that conservatives remain engaged and focused on the battle at hand. Complacency is not an option if we hope to rid ourselves of these leftist hucksters.
