  •  Center Right? After that beating? (2+ / 0-)

    Noonan, to me at least, is incorrect trying to continue calling us a Center Right country. Only in Conservative pundits circles are we even close to that.

    Trying to pin a label on the country as a whole is a futile gesture. We are a variety of people with needs that vary greatly depending on our status and ethnic background. Calling us Center Right is trying to inflict one group's morals on the remainder and we just don't need that anymore.

    We are a country of that should be listening to all different viewpoints from right to left. Assuming some baseline center right is just plain wrong. On some financial issues, we may end up somewhere in the conservative range. But on entitlements we are very much back on the liberal side. So I disgusts me when I hear some pundit recite what they THINK we are... Center Right...

    All I can say to that is "wishful thinking."
