Why Does 'Centrist' Always Mean The DC Corporate Lobbyist Position?

-- by Dave Johnson

How come whenever I hear something described as the 'centrist' position on a policy, it is always, always the exact position that the big DC corporate lobbyists are pushing?

Is the definition of the word 'centrist' "the postion favored by DC lobbyists for big corporations"?

How come the positions favored by huge majorities of the public are "fringe" while the positions that take from the public and give to a wealthy few are always 'centrist?"

I'm just sayin'...

Because journalists don't calculate the centrist position by percentage; they calculate by decibels.
