Response to Paul Krugman

[no-glossary][/no-glossary]Krugman notes, and not for the first time, that Obama is a conservative.
My response, now in NYT's slow-moving approval queue:
Since we've established that Obama is a conservative, may we never again see a post here that ponders why Obama "caved," why he's "spineless," why he "compromises," why he "doesn't stand by his principles," why his actions on a particular policy are "disappointing," etc.?
He's a conservative. That's why he does what he does.
Yet so much headscratching ensues in left-of-center outlets when he reliably does and says what a conservative does.
In some future time, the widespread amnesia and/or denial on this point may rival the myths of Sisyphus and Lucy-and-the-football for recurrent futility.
