I am a social democrat but I am a social democrat who wants to let businesses be as free as is legally possible. There are rules and taxes but for the rest companies should do what companies do best, make money and grow.
I am a social democrat that supports a safety net for the weakest in society, but not a handout kind of safety net. A safety net with the first and primary rule that it is a safety net working towards employment and not one for people to sit down and do nothing. The only people who are free of this demand is people who are unable to work due to serious illness and handicapped in such a manner that they cannot work again.
I am not a low punishment kind of guy, maybe not as extreme as in the US but still I want to be tough on crime, but especially the crimes that hurt people.
Being liberal does not mean agreeing with Obama, he is not that great a president by any standard, but he is also not the president that some people say that he is.

I don't know if he should have come without our president's "permission" or not. I do know Obama(when compared to every other president in the last 50 years) has been the least supportive of Israel. no question about that. I don't think liberals want Netanyahu to come here to make that point even more glaring.
It is beyond question that Israel has showed incredible restraint in dealing with it's enemies up to this point. Imagine if the United States had Syria....SYRIA!!!.....as a neighbor. The place would be a smoking hole in the earth by now. So I always give Israel the benefit of the doubt when it comes to how they handle threats.
By allowing ISIS and Al Qaeda to grow, and allowing Iran to acquire nukes while dropping all sanctions, we can see that he has taken a side. His attack on Libya for eight month (while refusing to even call it "hostilities") his ouster of Mubarak, his claim that the Muslim Brotherhood, his appointment of a Muslim as CIA Chief and his recent invitation to the White House of members of the Muslims Brotherhood should raise serious doubts about this guy.
This is serious stuff, and of course there is much more, but instead of raising any questions the incurious leftists respond with bromides like the one you just submitted.
The 6 year record of Obama's FP in the ME and the mostly secret Iranian negotiations are simply an entirely different topic.
