Bogus Centrists Peddle Snobbery

November 2011
Progressive Populist;11/15/2011, Vol. 17 Issue 20, p7
In this article the author presents a critique of a growing centrist movement within the U.S. as of November 2011. He cites No Labels, an organization devoted to bi-partisanship, which claims to be a platform between the Republicans and Democrats. He accuses them, however, of snobbery, for proposing policies which have already been implemented. He cites various cases where several members of No Labels, as well as proponents of centrism, show how out of touch they are with current realities.
