Paul Krugman comments on the Democratic President's right-wing mindset and embracement of conservative mythology. Like many of us, Krugman saw this early on in the 2008 campaign, but the adoring mob would not listen:
"More and more, it’s becoming clear that progressives who had their hearts set on Obama were engaged in a huge act of self-delusion. Once you got past the soaring rhetoric you noticed, if you actually paid attention to what he said, that he largely accepted the conservative storyline, a view of the world, including a mythological history, that bears little resemblance to the facts."
