Getting it exactly wrong

During the campaign, when I pointed out to liberals some of Obama’s more egregious Leftist statements, they pooh-poohed me:  “Don’t you know that all politicians campaign to the base, but govern from the center?”  I wonder what they think of the fact that Obama, having campaigned to the base, with bows to the center, is now governing from a Leftist extremism that surprises even some of the base.  These same liberals are remarkably silent right about now.
