  •  Obama is a liberal/progressive (0+ / 0-)

    and will remain one.  He is also a great leader, which is why so much progress has been made in his administration even against the current of a psychotic GOP Congress that we allowed into power.

    Technology is a compromise: You can use whatever tool you choose, but be assured it will use you back.

    •  we disagree on that minor point (0+ / 0-)

      His appointments to his cabinet especially in the economic area and the way he has governed makes me classify him as a moderate. His neo-liberal economics also assure his moderate credentials in that he believes tax cutting is the answer for too many of the nation economic ills.

      But don't get me wrong I know he's no Bushjr in that regard, he's a modern democrat in a time when the whole party has moved to the right. In my opinion he may become a great leader if his next term is successful however the jury is still out on that.

      It's somewhat fuuny that I should be in a position of defending calling him a moderate since in the pie wars around here people call me an Obamabot and worse. I support this President and fear for the nation should he be defeated in the next election.

      America could have chosen to be the worlds doctor, or grocer. We choose instead to be her policeman. pity
