Obama was never a lefty liberal. the far left should have known this, and had they bothered to listen to him verses just assume, they would have realized this. Their fault for thinking anything they stood for automatically applied to him.
and yes, they should vote for him in 12, because its not a left V right campaign, its a center verses far right campaign. Sometimes you got to vote to stand ground verses not vote and be blown back a mile
As far as anyone calling Obama a liberal...
MODERATOR EDIT -- INSULTING LANGUAGE
Obama is categorically more conservative than Ronald Reagan
So ya...liberal have reason to be a bit upset about no representation. Consider that. about %15 or so of the nation is pretty hard left..about the same with the hard right. The right however has pretty much all of their candidates trying to win over that one crowd. The left..nobody is even considering catering to the hard left..not even much lip service.
The country itself is socially left, yet our politics keep moving to the right and calling that center.
Fiscally I am middle of the road mind you...just make it make sense..corruption worries me more than spending (arguably the same). I don't mind paying for something, if it is a good deal and helps all or at least the needy.
