Your post should open a few eyes up here, but it won't. Most on the right are so confused about what socialism is that they consider Obama a socialist. They've simply never encountered socialism, and apparently they don't own dictionaries.
Obama is a centrist, pragmatist and dealmaker (in a good sense). That's why he's angered the so-called left on many occasions. He has an uncanny ability to understand how far he can go with legislation in the current political climate, and he knows how to marshal his forces. Although the comparison is not apt because of the different challenges faced, Obama seems to be consciously mimicking the political style of Lincoln (who also angered the liberals of his day). As he's said many times, he won't allow the perfect to be the enemy of the good.
