4. He's an institutional conservative

in the proper sense of the term. Almost his entire Presidency has been devoted is saving the Too Big to Fail global banks, big multinational corporations, and federal contractors from the consequences of decades of abuse and excess, or at least to bribe them into not taking their corporate HQ out of the US market. Manufacturing facilities, offices, jobs and profits are free to offshore - after all, he is a thoroughly conventional capitalist and Free Trader.

That's part of the reason he's called center-right. As far as economic, tax and trade policy are concerned, Obama is a moderate conservative.
