Who said the following?

"We may have to find some marvelous middle ground between capitalism and communism," (you know, like socialism, for example)

"the first priority of the new order must be a revision of the educational system to . . . guarantee that each of our citizens will have equal resources to share in the decisions of the democracy, and a fair share of the economic pie."

"we must strengthen the United Nations as a first step toward a world government" and that "Americans will have to yield up some of our sovereignty."

So, who was it?

Was it our president, Mr. Obama?

Or his friend Bill Ayers?

Or Comrade Pelosi from the People's Republic of San Francisco?

Or how about McGovern or Humphrey or Kennedy or Clinton?

Nope. None of these.

It was your beloved Uncle Walter Cronkite.

I wasn't sure where you were going with that, other than it was probably not the obvious answer (Obama).

Mr. Cronkite may have been a broadcasting giant, and it's fitting for people to memorialize him that way. But he was in no way a conservative...or even a moderate, as those quotes prove.

Oh, by the way a trivial point...he had an asteroid named after him.
