    No, he governed Left, which is the whole point of the distinction. Obama ran as Hopey Changey but governed as a centrist.

    This is what I want.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Undecided centrists are just people who arenít fully on board with voting for nazis. They have some reservations.

    This is what some of the uber-left don't realize about themselves.

    Not really. Frankly, you have no clothes, or so goes the story.

    JFK was not a liberal. His foreign policy was more hawkish than Eisenhower and his fear of communism was legendary. He cut the top marginal tax rate by more than Reagan did.

    We remember JFK as a liberal darling because Bobby was a liberal (and the brains of the outfit) and because he was murdered and is therefore a Democratic Saint. But he was backpeddling from FDR as fast as his shapely legs could go. It was LBJ himself who enacted the great liberal policies of the 60s but he was destroyed by Vietnam.
