Getting to Know Barack and Michelle Better

Lest you -- or people you know -- are under the impression Obama is a centrist (as he likes to claim), here are some words directly out of his and his wife's mouth to put these notions to rest:

"I won't deny my preference for the story the Democrats tell, nor my belief that the arguments of liberals are more often grounded in reason and fact."

"The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and [a] revamped education system, someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so someone else can have more." (Michelle)

"I am extremely concerned that [the partial-birth abortion ban] will [cause] conservative Supreme Court justices to erode Roe vs. Wade, which is a matter of equal rights for women."

The partial-birth abortion law is a "ban on a legitimate medical procedure" that "is clearly unconstitutional and must be overturned..." (Michelle)

"The right wing has done a good job of building these organizations of accountability, but it's always easier to organize around intolerance, narrow-mindedness, and false nostalgia."
