    I've done the research. Also, I never claimed he's the "most liberal ever". Painting him as a centrist is incorrect. That article was BS. Feel free to refute any of my specific points in regards to the article.

    So, its unfair to try to portray the "birthers" as uneducated by only looking at their shortcomings, but not look at the shortcomings of the 62%.

    Good night. Bout to head that way myself.

    The New Republic compares him to Woodrow Wilson, who laid the foundations for the modern big-government liberal state:

    Liberal political scientists appear intent upon trying to paint him as moderate.

    Very much so.

    And, in fairness, I believe he has governed to the right of what he believes. I don't believe his policies have been that of a left wing radical. However, I still believe he holds those positions, but understands what he can and cannot get through. He is also concerned about midterms. If he gets a supermajority, we will see the true Barack Hussein Obama.

    Aw as ideology? Like what?
    Perhaps to Europe no. But he is very extreme within the US and that is what counts within the US.

    And by ideology I do mean ones unbendable philosophical viewpoint.

    Certainly they are more liberal in Europe, but even here he's mild. Sorry.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I agree with you and the reason he hasn't pushed a radical liberal agenda most of his Presidency is because of the Republican majority in the House. Thank you, Republicans.

    But look at his first two years and you see the true Obama...liberal all the way.
