More than anything else I think BO is somewhat naive. He doesn't grasp how wicked the left is. He seems to think that the left is just another flavor of politics in America, not horrible people out to undo everything good that America has ever stood for. I think he is a decent, good hearted person who is trying but often misses the mark because is confused about the depth the wickedness of many on left. He leans back far too far trying to be "fair". On some things, though, he is very good.
