Why do people think Barack Obama is a liberal?

Is it just the only slur they can pronounce correctly or do they have some particular reason for slandering liberals by associating this centrist with us?  Obama does not follow liberal principles and his government consistently ignores and derides the left.  He has called us sanctimonious and mocked us any time we have stood in the way of his repeated surrender to conservatives.  His chief of staff called us “fucking retarded”.  The only flack Rahm Emanuel got for that was for using the word “retarded”, and that was from Sarah Palin!  The administration did not come down on Emanuel for his remarks that could alienate the base of the Democratic party.  Of course not.  The only base the administration feels the need to pander to is the Republican base.  The administration is not afraid of losing liberal votes, so they feel safe in abusing us while going after the far right and so-called independents.

Yes, if liberals abandoned the Democratic Party in the next election, the Democrats would lose.  Plain and simple.  But why does this country need a reminder of what happens under a far-right government?  We already suffered through the Bush Regime and have still not shaken off the ill effects of that repeated assault on liberty.  But maybe the country is not the institution in need of the lesson.  Maybe it is our deeply flawed “two” party system that is in need of the shock.

Ultimately, we liberals have to realize that the Democrats are not interested in our interests.  What do we do about that?
