Obama is a moderate republican, example #238

Heard this yesterday on the drive home — here’s the NYTimes version,

The president rejected a proposed rule from theĀ Environmental Protection Agency that would have significantly reduced emissions of smog-causing chemicals, saying that it would impose too severe a burden on industry and local governments at a time of economic distress.

Please people, if you start an argument by calling Obama a liberal or a socialist, you’ve already discredited yourself.
