Who is he??? Part II
Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 03:37 PM by wyldwolf
For part I, go here. The answer for part I was Jimmy Carter.

After a major election year loss, he distanced himself from the liberal/progressive wing of the party, declaring, Im not a liberal at all... Im not comfortable with those people.

His father told a leading national magazine, How could any son of mine be a god damn liberal? Dont worry about him being a weak sister. Hell be tough.

In a Senate race, he refused to endorse the Democratic candidate and instead endorsed the Republican!

As president-elect, he appointed high level Republicans to prominent cabinet posts!

His most well-known catch phrase was a rebuke of the welfare state and a promotion of individual responsibility.

Another phrase was a Woodrow Wilson-like call to arms for Liberal Internationalism. 1 2

A master of the New Democrat perfected "triangulation," he alienated Labor Unions by not siding with them on a number of issues, saying disputes must be settled with what is best for the publics interest.

He considered our tax system obsolete and advocated massive tax cuts.

A leading Republican characterized him as a Democrat by accident of birth; he is more of a pragmatist than a Democrat.

Congressman John Lewis (D, GA) a civil rights hero, said his civil rights actions were "too little, too late"
