Interesting graph from VoteView showing the GOP lurching to the right over the years and dragging the Democrats with them.  Interesting to note that the Nazi Socialist Marxist Kenyan Non-President Obama-nation is about as “liberal” as Truman and LBJ (in other words, not so much…)

Dragging to the Right

Our findings here echo those discussed in a prior post that Republicans have moved further to the right than Democrats to the left in the contemporary period. Indeed, as seen below, President Obama is the most moderate Democratic president since the end of World War II, while President George W. Bush was the most conservative president in the post-war era.

    He’s only skewing right because of his military actions. Socially he’s more liberal than any president in history.
