    Actually they aren't. If you look at the definition of a conservative vs a liberal, you will find that extremists leaning towards socialism, communism or even fascism are all components of the left. Each of those depend on govt control, which is what the left wingers want, more govt control to take care of the people. That doesn't mean there aren't right wing extremists. However, right wing extremists are no more republican than Obama is.

    Obama leans to the radical progressive left with his Marxist, Socialist mentality. Romney is definitely more centrist than I would like, but definitely the better man.

    Obama did not even fight for single payer, and compromised with Republicans on extending tax cuts for the rich even though those cuts have contributed immensely to the debt. And we are still in Afghanistan, and Gitmo is still open. Obama has compromised on everything. Romney, in contrast, wants to privatize Social Security, trade Medicare for vouchers and good wishes, and give the top 1% another $3 trillion in tax cuts. Romney wants to kill off the middle class.

    Just because Obama did not "fight" for single payer, has no bearing on his lef-leaning desire FOR a single payer system...He has made it with multiple verifiable admissions on adio/video that he PREFERS a single payer healthcare system....And the stipulations in the law being ruled on in the SCOTUS is a move in that direction to NUDGE the U.S.A. into a evolved single payer system.

    That is NO secret.

    You say - "Obama has compromised on everything." -- If Obama has compromised on anything it is not out of DESIRE, but out of NO OTHER CHOICE...His representing party, the Democrat Party, have made political decisions AGAINST their own Progressive ideology, and Obama has gone with it for political reasons ONLY.

    Gitmo is still open NOT because Obama campaigned that way in 2008, but because in all practicality, he has had not other choice.

    I do not mind legitimate disagreement, but your comments are as deceiving as Obama's own teleprompted words.

    Please do not come back, unless you want to continue to edit your comments within the same discussion box...And you are welcome to do that.

    Romney has been a successful business man. He is a man with integrity. Romney is the one who will cut the deficit. Obama promised he was going to do it and he has failed. We need someone else to see if he will deliver on his promises.

    ....actually there is no leaning to the center. People lean away from center. obummer is a radical leftist ideologue . Basically a hardcore socialist. romney leans left too. But he does not have that socialist ideology. But if it is possible to "lean" towards the center. That would be the answer as to why conservative don't really like romney. He's leans toward the center which means he leans left and not to the right........

    Romney is much less liberal than Obama, and he is much more liberal than most Republicans. I think that makes him more centrist by default.

    Obama doesn't even seem to know HOW to be an American, 20 years in Wright's "hate America" church helped solidify his anti American views. At least I believe Romney loves our country and won't try to destroy it.

    Romney doesn't follow the Right-Wing of the GOP. He'll pacify them, but I can confidently say we're not going to have a Santorum Theocracy with Mitt. Romney cares mostly about economic issues and foreign policy and is pretty middle of the road.

    If you listen to the mainstream left-leaning media and the many young lefties blogging and tweeting then you might start to believe Obama is the centrist and Romney is some kind of capitalist tea-party extremist,
    In reality?
    Romney would well and easily be pretty much just a bit to the 'right' of center. Very much in line with most Americans and probably a little far to the 'left' for a lot of conservatives. But even still - well in the center.
    In Reality?
    Obama and this business about killing pipelines to appease radical enviro-marxist donor in San Francisco or getting involved in anti-Christian (anti-Catholic) legal manipulation schemes using Sandra Fluke's and then loading his White House with communists (some ACTUAL communists) but also well-radical leftist people and you have an extreme left-winger in Obama.
    Yes, of course his whole deal is playing the 'everyman' who is all reasonable and affable. Uncle Obama is just a 'regular dude' and hey... he DID keep the Bush-Cheney military path right?

    Romney is a solid conservative yes - but he is far more the ACTUAL center 'everyman' typical and well easily aligned and similar to the average American family and values, economic ideology etc. IMO
