    No. They are just different ideas.

    Since there's obviously more than one, it should be 'liberals' not 'liberal.' And questions are supposed to end with one of these ?.
    Just sayin'.

    Not....liberal....enough? The only thing he could do to be more liberal is to take your wallet with his own hands...give it to a gay couple as a wedding gift....all while killing an unborn child...with a board from the rubble of the last Hobby Lobby store.

    True. But taking my money isn't the solution. Forcing reform in the industry is.

    Would be interesting to see the impact and reasoning....not just the quantity.

    In the UF parking garage I use, about 10% of the cars had Obama/Biden bumper stickers 6 months ago. The incidence is now down to about 2%.

    I am not responsible for this traitor being in the oval office.

    Local democrats did a much better job of getting out their idiots than local republicans. Local republicans were lazy, and just used robo-calls to try to reach out and irritate people. Democrats took the time to listen to what voters had to say (what they were worried about, etc.) and they tailor-made a lie that made the voter afraid of the opponent. My wife had a friend (worked in the school system) who voted for Obama because the local democrat told her that Romney was going to cut funding for education and eliminate her job. She never checked the facts, and never doubted the person who took the time to listen to her. Democrats also did a much better job of using technology to both reach out to voters, and to analyze voter data.

    BWAHAHAHAHA!!! Obama has never held a position in his life, other than wealth re-distribution. As a senator, you'd have to hold a gun to his head to get him to vote on anything. He admitted in his book that he was intentionally a blank slate in his political life so no one could hold him responsible for anything. In 2008, he was absolutely all over the map with crazy ideas. Any time anyone tried to pin him down with something he said, he would just say that was amplified and over-heated rhetoric. He was the perfect Manchurian candidate.

    Obama's guiding principle is "honor thyself, every chance you get". Never has a man accomplished so little, yet crowed so much about it. Narcissism, thy name is Obama, the Great Pontificator. Obama is the definition of someone who was born on third base, and thought he hit a triple. He is the first person to win a Nobel Prize for self-identifying as a black person.

    Loose cannon? How much of a loose cannon can you be compared to a socialist raised by Marxists (with racists and terrorists thrown in)? If McCain is a loose cannon, Obama is a loose nuclear weapon. Obama is very unsteady in foreign policy, wavering in his non-existent principles from day to day. Our allies no longer trust us, and it is because of Obama. I don't remember Obama on the campaign trail, telling America he was going to spy on anyone and everyone (the Germans wouldn't have voted for him if they had known he was going to spy on them). When NSA's spying was revealed, he did not take a stand and stop the unnecessary spying, or cut NSA's funding. All he did was declare that he was not personally responsible for it. That's called leading from behind. When everything is someone else's fault, but you can still try to take credit for anything good that happens.

    Most people who preferred Obama's "positions" on economic issues to Romney's don't know anything about economics. They might think that breaking a window to watch the insurance money get spent is good economic policy. They might think that driving down the street, and dumping newly printed cash out the window is good economic policy. They might think that government spending in and of itself can stimulate the economy. They just don't know any better.

    The Democrats have been moving further and further to the left with their social agenda. It doesn't work!

    see, no perspective

    Obama is about as liberal as Bill Clinton, except, he got more stuff passed, which is partly why he is so hated by conservatives. Bill never got HillaryCare passed, DADT was a compromise for what he actually wanted, etc...

    But if you think Obama passed what liberals actually wanted, than you are not being honest.

    You don't have to believe me though...per the DW Nominate, who actually rates him less liberal than Bill

    Notice Repubs are trending more to the Right of the Center, than Dems are to the Left (they have actually moved Right), which makes it understandable as to why Conservatives would view Democrats farther and farther away from their positions...

    No, just a vastly different perspective.
