Barack Obama not only has to worry about the GOP tactics, John McCain and angry Hillary supporters if he wants to be elected President come November, but also apparently the ramifications of his extremely liberal record, which is being called out by of all people, a fellow Democrat:
Democratic Rep. Dan Boren of Oklahoma said Tuesday Barack Obama is "the most liberal senator" in Congress and he has no intention of endorsing him for the White House.Let's face it when you have a record drenched in solely supporting liberal propaganda as Barack does, you're bound to be called on it. You just don't expect it from fellow party members. Yet, the fact of the matter is liberals are ones who screamed for years that President Bush was only interested in the needs of his base before the Democrats took over Congress in 2006. Yet, using their own argument, what does it say about a man who wants to be President, that he has never shown any interest in bipartisanship throughout his years in the Senate? The McCain camp would do well to exploit this matter, a concern that gains serious traction what with the endorsement of a Democrat.
However, Boren will vote for Obama at the Democratic National Convention in Denver in August and will vote Democratic on Nov. 4.
"I think this is an important time for our country," Boren said in a telephone interview. "We're facing a terrible economic downturn. We have high gasoline prices. We have problems in our foreign policy. That's why I think it's important."
Boren, the lone Democrat in Oklahoma's congressional delegate, said that while Obama has talked about working with Republicans, "unfortunately, his record does not reflect working in a bipartisan fashion."
