44. I am still behind Obama 100% and want him to do well, but this isn't about being a
liberal. I criticize him because I think he's wrong, not because I think he's not liberal enough. I knew that he wasn't a liberal during the primaries and still voted for him. And no, I should not apologize for voicing my opinion. We are not Republicans, we are Democrats. We don't all fall in line and think the same way. Go to Freeperville if you wish to stifle dissent.
