“Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus” - Edwards, Obama and the non-existent Left

Roger Simon on the Left and Barack Obama

But is it fair, as I do in the headline, to tarnish Obama with the Edwards brush? Isn’t Barack legitimately a liberal or a leftist or something? Isn’t there some ideology there? Well, frankly, I think not. The only ideology, if you can call it that, is to attract a certain number of brain-washed (mostly by the MSM) voters. Obama statements have already morphed completely into “McCain lite.” On energy, foreign policy, trade, etc. he is saying essentially the same thing now as McCain has been saying for months. There is, in Obama’s case, quite properly no there there. So is his ideology essentially a lie? Is there such a thing as liberalism anymore? Is there some place for me to go home to as my old friend suggested at the ‘04 Convention? Where is it?
