That's why the radical right taking over the Republican Party is so troublesome. The Republican party is so extreme right at the moment that their perception is out of whack with reality, which is why they consider centrists like Obama and the bulk of the Democratic party to be "radical".
I think Obama and the bulk of the Dems are right of center. The Right is so far right that the Dems, in contrast, appear to be centrists. If Nixon was alive today, he'd be a Leftist.
