He may need to appear moderate to get elected. I hope he will be conservative if he is elected. We have had enough moderate and way too much liberal nonsense in our government, our society and our economy. The rest of the world is not in very good shape either-many have demographic problems with too many old people and not enough young workers. Then there the threat from radical Islam. More worrisome is that our current government does not take it seriously. Obama thinks he can charm them to change, but he can't.
