Real Time: Villagers Are Warning Obama That He Should Govern From The Center If He Wins

From Real Time Oct. 24, 2008 the panel of Tim Robbins, Carol Liefer, Matt Dowd and Arthur Laffer discuss how things will go for the Democrats if they do win the Presidency and large enough majorities in the House and the Senate to make the Republicans irrelevant. Matt Dowd of course thinks that for any Democrat to be successful in office they have to govern from the "center" which Bill Maher does a great job of shooting down.

UPDATE: by John Amato

This is becoming a prevailing theme from the Villagers. That America is a Conservative nation and if Obama wins the election he better not use liberal ideas to govern or he will pay a heavy price for it. Where is the outrage over the eight years of Conservative governance that has destroyed this country while all these so called Conservatives in Congress rubber stamped Bush's policies throughout his entire presidency?

Here's John Meacham's latest. Get used to it.

America remains a center-right nation—a fact that a President Obama would forget at his peril.

Why doesn't Meacham hold Conservative ideology up for public scrutiny and then tell me why we're a Conservative nation? What have they done that has helped the 300 million plus Americans in their quest for better lives? We are creating less jobs for the economy, families are losing income per house household except for the ultra rich and the American dream is being crushed because of the greed that de- regulation has fostered. What the evidence shows is that we've just witnessed the greatest financial melt down since the Depression, but Obama should take heed and not govern with his own policies. To be continued...
