Brit Hume: Obama's Address Verifies He Is An "Out And Out Liberal"
BRIT HUME: I think we had a clarifying moment today, and that the president's speech served a real purpose and should put to rest, in my view, for all time the idea that Barack Obama really is a moderate. Barack Obama is a liberal. I don't think he's a radical, but he's an out and out liberal and now, newly reelected, he intends to pursue the course of that liberalism. He is going to pursue it as if he had, from the election, an enormous mandate. I think he had a narrow win, but a decisive win. And the battle lines are now clearly drawn. I don't think there's much hope at all, barring unforeseen developments, which are always possible, that we're going to have any kind of the unity in Washington that some people have longed for for so long.
