For the record, Bob Gale is a fairly outspoken conservative in real life.

If I were writing Spider-Man, I'd try to avoid real-world politics altogether, because:

1. It alienates about half of the readership depending on which way they go (right or left). The other half may be amused, but it probably isn't worth it...

2. It tends to date the comic. Spidey meeting Obama at the 2008 inauguration won't be canon ten years from now, since that would considerably age the character.
