It depends on what your definition of "Keynesian" is …

[This related article is recommended in its entirety.]
“Is President Barack Obama really a Keynesian? When comics at Second City posed the question at Comedy Central’s “Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear” Saturday on the National Mall, some of the responses were pretty heated. One flannel-clad Obama supporter said, “He was born in Hawaii. That is a state of the United States. He is born here legally, and he is an awesome president.” […] Many have said Mr. Obama channeled Mr. Keynes when he pushed a $787 billion stimulus bill through Congress last year.”
— Danny Yadron, November 1, 2010 (

Embarrassed yet?

  1. A Kenyan?
  2. An American?
  3. A Keynesian?
  4. A Socialist?
  5. A Chicago hack?
  6. An empty suit?
  7. All of the above?
  8. Some of the above?
  9. The Messiah?
  10. Santa Claus?
