I just don't seem moderate to you, because you're on the right. If you're standing in the end zone, someone on the 50 looks pretty far away. There's nothing wrong with that, it's just an observation of perception; I have some reeeeeealllly left-leaning friends who think I'm the physical manifestation of the John Birch Society.
And even if Obama is more liberal than Clinton and Carter, a statement of which I am not convinced for the reasons I gave above, that's only a sample of three. Not exactly a damnation.
