I have been going back and forth in my mind all morning on the issue of whether or not to post about this topic. A few minutes ago I came to the conclusion that Charlie Baker must want this story out there. If he didn't, he would not have said this in a formal interview with the Boston Globe. Here it is: http://wap.boston.com/art/30/n…
He describes himself as “to the left of Barack Obama’’ on social issues and is frustrated that more folks don’t appreciate that.
The way I see it there are only four possible ways to view this statement:
1) It's the Truth: Charlie Baker is making a statement about Charlie Baker. I have no reason to doubt him and have not known him to lie.
2) It's a Lie: Charlie Baker is actually to the right of Barack Obama. He knows it and made this statement up.
3) Charlie Baker is Ignorant: Charlie Baker only thinks he's to the left of Barack Obama on social issues, but he's wrong.
4) He was Misquoted: It's the Boston Globe. It happens.
MORE BELOW THE FOLD….
I personally believe option #1. I think Charlie Baker is intelligent, honest and well informed. I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. I believe him, and I don't appreciate it.
Dear Charlie Baker,
Your opponent is not John Silber.
