    What constitutes a "fake moderate?"

    people who claim to be moderate but arent, which is most. I see Moonglow says he's a moderate. He believes everything that the left says and never attacks the left or a democrat. In essence he's trying to fool people, but you read a few posts, you get the gist. It's not hard.

    That's a perfect name for those who pretend to be mainstream even though they are actually radical. I think a lot of people claim to be moderate simply because they are aware that the majority of people in this country do not embrace far left ideas, or far right.

    There are several reasons for this.
    1)everyone leans one way or the other. I lean slightly left, its no shocker, I can admit it, although I do find plenty of faults with democrats and Obama.
    2) Republicans on this board make me hate republicans. There are some lefty nutjobs here, who I will not name, because this is not a flame thread. But there are far more righty wackjobs. Particularly the name calling. Its childish and petty. I've probably heard 50 different names for Obama since I've joined here. Are we 12? The vast majority aren't even funny. Obumba? Super lame. Obummer? Same. I admit I chuckled the first time I heard Obamanation. That one was kinda funny, none of the rest were at all. It also doesn't stop there. Its just not insulting Obama. Once you seem to be losing an argument, you attack the poster.

    This goes for the RWs here in general, and specifically YOU. I just read a post where you were attacking someone, just minutes ago. Seriously, grow up.

    Ever seen a "moderate" lean to the right? Just a "smidge"? Ever?
