  •  That's what a "centrist" is (5+ / 0-)

    I think you have just graphically defined exactly what the word "centrist" means.  It means a politician who favors authoritarian/right-wing government.

    And as Obama apoligists are quick to point out, everyone knew from the jump that Obama was a "centrist", and no one voted for Obama because they wanted a break from the authoritarian/right-wing government of GW Bush.  Which explains why the policies of GW Bush have been carried on intact, and in some ways expanded (like taking down whistle-blowers)

    And those same apologists will be certain to tell you that it is your duty as a liberal American to get out and vote for Obama, because the conservatives do not like the constitution and civil rights.
