Refusing to let facts or logic sway one’s cherished beliefs or selected worldview is one of the defining characteristics of a conservative. Liberal democrats’ irrational belief that Obama somehow represents an improvement over Bush and the republicans, coupled with their faith in capitalism (even a “reformed” or “regulated” version) no matter what the evidence shows, proves them to also be conservative. They are center-right/moderate conservatives. They don’t often seem wacko like the ultra-conservatives made fun of in this cartoon, but because of the co-opting soft power that this segment of the establishment wields, they might be considered even more dangerous toward radical forces for change.
