20. Both "liberal" and "progressive" are open to
a wide range of definitions. That's why I call myself a leftist, which leaves no room for misunderstanding.

As a leftist, I can clearly state that there is nothing "left" about Obama. He is a strong centrist, and, on some issues, center-right. He's worked very hard to solidify his position as a centrist.

That doesn't make him like the sociopathic GWB. It doesn't make him "as bad as" a right wing republican.

It just makes him a a president that I disagree strongly with on too many key issues.
