Paul Krugman, Please Stop With That Obama Is A Conservative Myth! Action, Pictures, Videos!

This morning, I read this punch line myth being delivered by the king of President Obama's critic, Mr. Krugman. From his Op-Ed column, based on an out of context quote from two years ago, he seems to have reached a conclusion that pretty much says President Obama is a Conservative.
Some readers may recall that back during the Democratic primary Barack Obama shocked many progressives by praising Ronald Reagan as someone who brought America a “sense of dynamism and entrepreneurship that had been missing.” [...] More and more, it's becoming clear that progressives who had their hearts set on Obama were engaged in a huge act of self-delusion. Once you got past the soaring rhetoric you noticed, if you actually paid attention to what he said, that he largely accepted the conservative storyline, a view of the world, including a mythological history, that bears little resemblance to the facts.
I really can't understand how a noble prize winning economist would dare to even entertain to call this President and his Administration Conservative unless it is to feed into the frenzy to undermine him or seek attention? May be if Paul Krugman just takes 20 minutes and listen to what Rachel Maddow has to say, he would really understand the true meaning of how President Obama really is a conservative(snark). If true that President Obama as a conservation has done these things, I proudly say it that I am grateful for my Conservation President.

The President's Weekly Address
The President says ratifying the New START, a pivotal treaty with Russia on nuclear weapons, must happen this year. He explains that failure to ratify the treaty this year would not only mean losing our nuclear inspectors in Russia, but also undermine the international coalition pressuring Iran, put at risk the transit routes used to equip our troops in Afghanistan, and undo decades American leadership and bipartisanship on nuclear security.
