The Key Fact: “Obama: Most Liberal Senator In 2007”

Wednesday, May 7, 2008  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

From the respected, non-partisan National Journal:

Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., was the most liberal senator in 2007, according to National Journal‘s 27th annual vote ratings. The insurgent presidential candidate shifted further to the left last year in the run-up to the primaries, after ranking as the 16th- and 10th-most-liberal during his first two years in the Senate….

On foreign policy, for example, Obama’s liberal score of 92 and conservative score of 7 indicate that he was more liberal in that issue area than 92 percent of the senators and more conservative than 7 percent….

Overall in NJ‘s 2007 ratings, Obama voted the liberal position on 65 of the 66 key votes on which he voted….

Here’s the “key vote” list on which the rankings were based.

Barack Obama: The hardest left major party presidential candidate in American history.

If elected, Obama will make Jimmy Carter seem like Truman.
