Is Obama A Keynesian?

This is a little surprising. I don’t expect everyone to know about John Maynard Keynes* http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keynes or that he is the darling economist of the progressives but I thought most people would at least know that someone who hails from Kenya is a Kenyan.

*Fun Fact about Keynes the Fabian Socialist:

Support for eugenics

Keynes was a proponent of eugenics, having served as Director of the British Eugenics Society from 1937 to 1944. As late as 1946, before his death, Keynes declared eugenics to be “the most important, significant and, I would add, genuine branch of sociology which exists.”

Isn’t it funny how almost every early progressive/socialist was a fan of Eugenics?
