Is Obama too moderate or too liberal for your liking?

I was having a discussion with a friend and she thinks Obama is too liberal. I have heard others say that he is too moderate.
What is your opinion, and why do you think he is too moderate or liberal - either way?

  • He is way too liberal trying to wear a moderate disguise.  He poses as a moderate, but he is not even close to even being slightly moderate.  It is usually HIS way or the high way, there is no in between.

  • Too liberal - specifically his complete lack of fiscal self control. Something I read this morning really stuck with me. Two different statements Obama made during his campaign:
    "Washington will have to tighten its belt and put off spending"
    "go through the federal budget, line by line, ending programs that we don't need"

    Those sentiments are the reason so many Republicans were willing to even consider crossing the line to vote for him. It wasn't his social policies, it was his fiscal ones. That he was lying about. Go figure.

  • He is too liberal. Many his associations, czars, etc border on the verge of "far left"....

  • Way too liberal, he ran as a moderate middle of the road guy and boy do we see his true colors now, I wish DH and I would have listened to some of our friends more, he never would have had our votes.

  • Depends on the issues, really. He's far too moderate on some things that I care deeply about (such as gay marriage). He's too liberal on other things (such as fiscal responsibility). I can't say which he is overall, because I have different opinions about each area of politics.

  • He is too ineffective for my taste.... nothing to do with moderate or liberal.... the economy is BAD and his programs have not helped enough (in my mind, not at all, but I am trying to be nice here!)
