While the dissident Left has curiously become mute under Obama, the dissident Right has turned up the volume in questioning a Democratic president whose agenda includes some of the most ambitious big government experiments in this nation’s history. Targeting Americans who have been vocally uneasy with such drastic government expansion, last week a few of my Left-leaning friends at the Charleston City Paper wrote scathing indictments of Sen. Jim DeMint and his “followers,” declaring that “Jim DeMint blows harder than the bone-chilling winds across the Siberian tundra” and that his blustering has been effective in “scoring points with the yahoo contingent of the Republican Party.” I suppose those “yahoos” would be conservatives like me.
