With the 2012 election on the line and conservatives citing the Founders’ legacy as a touch-stone of limited government, Time Magazine has found it useful to turn the first president into a proto-liberal.
In a Time Magazine special on the life of George Washington, Mount Holyoke College professor and historian Joseph J. Ellis blasted the Tea Party and the “conservative agenda of the modern Republican party” as antithetical to the vision of the Founders, and claimed that Washington began a tradition of centralizing government that culminated in Obamacare.
Apparently this “professor” hasn’t read many writings of the Founding Fathers! For more info click here.
