Can we stop calling Obama liberal now?

The Bush tax cuts are being extended by two years. The super-rich minority will be receiving billions upon billions from the U.S. government. Way to reduce the deficit. This was a deal Democrats struck in order to extend unemployment benefits. I'm fucking pissed. Two million Americans being able to eat should not be a bargaining chip. I'm not sure whether I should complain that this is what America has become, or jump off a bridge after the realization that this is what we always have been.

I'm seeing a lot of internet rage from progressives right now saying that they're not going to vote for Obama in 2012 because of this. Normally this would piss me off, but I'm keeping my fucking mouth shut now. They're right. If you're a liberal, then no one expects you to vote for a moderate. It's as simple as that. I'll still be voting for him, but not because I want him to be President. It's inevitable at this point that every catastrophic policy that Republicans want is going to get passed, so I'm just hoping that voting Democrat might slow them down a little. Democrats owned the government for the last two years, and their greatest achievement is a health care mess that Republicans proposed in the 90s. That's not change. Once I get out on my own and get myself established, I'm going to seriously consider moving to Canada. Fuck this dumbshit country.
