Radical-In-Chief Calls Fiscal Sanity Proponents Radical

I know that we could all use a good belly-laughter these days of general insanity coming out of Washington, D.C. 

Perhaps the best source of such comedie noire (perverse comedy) is our  the President.  His latest antics include calling the Ryan plan, as well as anyone else who screams about the unsustainable, insane deficits, radicals.  He did it responding to Rep. Ryan's proposal (which have its own set of problems in that it was not nearly as drastic as what is needed), and did it again and again in different interviews as well as his Facebook farce yesterday.

What the President is doing is clear as a bell.  This is the real life application of Alinsky rule no.10 (If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive for you) by a great student of the original radical.  Call the opposition radicals at every opportunity and, with the help of a complicit media, you will change the minds of independent swing voters.

Where the comedie noire comes in is the 'pot calling the kettle black'. 
A guy who was born of Marxist radicals, raised and mentored by radicals, hung around radicals while in college, associated with radicals (like Ayers, Dohrn, Rev Wright, and others), made multitudinous statements that define the word 'radical', and wants to fundamentally change our society in to his radical post-modern Marxist view is now calling those trying to lead the way back to fiscal sanity radical?

There is your belly laughter for the day.  Wait till tomorrow and you will undoubtedly be treated to a new one.
