I was incorrect that President Obama is center right. I think my confusion is President George W Bush was so far to the right that it makes it appear that Obama is in the middle:

Wow, doubling down on your lie. Way to nail down your lack of character Crakrjak.
My full sentence was, "Liberals are disappointed in him only because he didn't move far enough to the left from where George W had us." The word you are purposely ignoring is ONLY. Without that you are lying about what I said. But why change now. You have a history of doing this to people. You`re the king of the strawman argument. Why comment on a persons point when you can just change it to match the argument you want to make. Basically in doing this you are just playing with yourself.

he's been quick on the trigger on foreign policy, Oh yeah @patchy! He`s all over that `Syria Thing` eh? Like white on rice... two years it`s been going on now... 25,000 dead...
As for the Union Thugs: by NOT taking action, or even addressing the issue, he speaks volumes... he only picks a side if there`s political correctness on his side.
@FP Obama never has to say it, his lackeys and the MSM do it for him. Like `Honest Abe` Lincoln, he haad a right-hand man who did ALL the lieing for him!
@foolsowl: Reagan lowered taxes on the poor, and closed hundreds of "loopholes" on the rich. The net was a slight increase in revenue, so I guess that counts as raising taxes... unlike Obama who is taxing EVERY American with ObamaCare.

This country has moved so far to the right in the last20-30 years, Republicans would call Reagen a communist today. That's tough to say. I think a more accurate statement would be that the two primary parties have become more extreme over the past few decades.
While Republicans might abhor Reagan`s economic policies, we must also remember that FDR vehemently opposed public sector unions. Certainly many modern Democrats would consider this attitude "center right" or even "far right". Yet, just as Republicans tend to idolize Reagan, many Democrats tend to idolize FDR.
The real problem currently is that we are being taught to dismiss and ignore otherwise intelligent ideas by those who oppose our own.
