Why do some people keep calling Obama "center-right"? [View all]

Last edited Wed Aug 14, 2013, 08:45 PM - Edit history (1)

I hear self-proclaimed liberals on DU call him that all the time, in addition to "Third Way", "DINO", and "moderate Republican". Considering all of the things that he has advocated such as higher top tax rates, women's right to choose, voting rights, gay rights, stricter gun laws, and health care reform, I just have a hard time understanding how people can make that claim about him with a straight face, especially when the average Republican/conservative opposes these things, and especially considering how hostile they have been towards his agenda since January 2009. Also if he is that far to the right, then why is approval rating with all liberals (in general) still above 80%?

Your thoughts?
