GWB has had more liberal spending policies than Obama, though

You're over-reaching. Obama is bad but you can say that without putting things out of proportion.

Sometimes I swear Obama lives in a strange quantam paradox, where he's both the most liberal president conservatives have ever seen and the most conservative president liberals have ever seen.

Ironically, I'd actually say that Obama has been the most liberal president since... well... Nixon.

That isn't to say that Obama is some super-liberal, but Carter was very conservative, Clinton at the very least governed as a conservative, and Nixon was more liberal than either of them.

Obama's actually done some things for gay rights, so it's hard to call him a conservative.
