    he's like Lugar, only moderate relative to his caucus.

        •  If he was the 6th least conservative (0+ / 0-)

          That almost has to make him a moderate, in the context of today's House Republican Caucus. Was Senator Lugar equally friendly to unions?

        •  Smith is a "moderate," except on abortion (1+ / 0-)
          Recommended by:
          MichaelNY

          He's in the Todd Akin category when it comes to women's health issues.

        •  Smith is not a moderate (0+ / 0-)

          When it comes to abortion, he is worse than Todd Akin and started the trend of redefining rape.

          I wish I could have seen him gone in 2012, especially considering he's my new congressman (screw you redistricting).

          •  Marcy Kaptur is pro-life and she is still (1+ / 0-)

            a very strong liberal.  being extreme on one issue does not mean you are not a moderate on most issues.
