    Does having conservatives like Robert Gates as your defense secretary sound liberal to you? (Actually I rather like Gates he's doing a fine job given the steaming pile of **** he was handed)
    Does keeping Guantanamo bay open sound liberal to you?
    Does continuing the use of torture and maintaining the Bush policy of extraordinary rendition sound liberal to you?
    Does not supporting gay marriage sound liberal to you?
    Does not taking the lead on the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, and instead letting Congress do the heavy lifting sound liberal to you?
    Does keeping the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy sound liberal to you?

    Obama might be a liberal at heart but he has been anything but a liberal President. The thought of him being a socialist is even more laughable.
    So Obama is incompetent and can't even pass his own socialist agenda with a super majority in congress. I would not call it moderate but a failure to hold his liberal party together. As for Gates I do not see any conservatism in him since he became buddies with Obama. He sounds more like an Obama mouthpiece

    How about clicking on the source and reviewing the info for yourself.

    Too time consuming? Too taxing?

    Gun-Control Effort Coming Soon From White House - Newsweek

    At the beginning of his State of the Union address, President Obama tipped his hat to Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who’s now recuperating in a Houston medical facility. But throughout the hourlong speech, he never addressed the issue at the core of the Giffords tragedy—gun control—and what lawmakers would, or should, do to reform American firearm-access laws.

    That was intentional, according to the White House. An administration official says Obama didn’t mention guns in his speech because of the omnipresent controversy surrounding the Second Amendment and gun control. Tuesday’s speech was designed to be more about the economy and how, as Obama repeated nine times, the U.S. could “win the future.”

    But in the next two weeks, the White House will unveil a new gun-control effort in which it will urge Congress to strengthen current laws, which now allow some mentally unstable people, such as alleged Arizona shooter Jared Loughner, to obtain certain assault weapons, in some cases without even a background check.
    1. This is another "never waste a crisis" moment.

    2. Obama has always been an ardent gun control freak.

    3. John Lott tried to engage Obama when at Harvard, but recalled his being narrow. No intellectual curiosity. I recall this story (below) from Lott during the campaign, and added to it he then turned and walked away after Obama made his statement. Lott made the case that the profs at Harvard debate each other on friendly terms, but Obama would have none of it. Obama was a guest lecturer they normally would not hire, and many did not want hired except everyone knew he would be off to politics. You would think a guest lecturer would engage others... but nope, not Obama.

    "I knew Obama during the mid-1990s. The first time I introduced myself to
    him he said

    'Oh, you are the gun guy.' I responded 'Yes, I guess so.' He simply
    responded, 'I don't believe that people should be able to own guns."'

    --Professor John Lott, PhD, author of More Guns, Less Crime

    26 pages in, do we even know what the new 'push' is and why it's good or bad?
