    The final line for me to cross in complete alienation from the right was my recognition that Obama is not a leftist. In fact, he’s barely a liberal—and only because the political spectrum has moved so far to the right that moderate Republicans from the past are now considered hardcore leftists by right-wing standards today. Viewed in historical context, I see Obama as actually being on the center-right.
    I appreciate the man's observations about his mates and willingness to be convinced by evidence.

    Now Obama now needs to show us that HE, Obama is not living in the center right epidemiological beltway bubble and HE realizes that austerity does not work, that Jobs and investment are the Key to growing the economy and reducing deficit.

     The signs are somewhat promising that reality is winning converts all over.
