    The dishonesty in the Atlantic article about the British Conservative election campaign begins in the second paragraph: “Only in the United States does the liberal left govern.” In fact US political discourse is skewed so far to the right that in every other English speaking country the Obama administration would be the center right. Such evidence as there is suggests that David Cameron is perfectly comfortable dealing with Obama as a kindred spirit, and to give him credit he would probably find a Republican presidency under any of the declared candidates, except possibly Bush, extremely difficult.
