  •  I've never thought of Obama as a leftist (4+ / 0-)

    The main reason the GOP gives him that label is because it keeps Democrats divided.  

    The label irritates those Dems who know he's not a liberal and it irritates the corporate conservatives in the party who feel they can only defend Obama by attacking the liberal values of their own party.

    It works very well to keep the Dem Party divided.

    In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock. Thomas Jefferson
