Any examples to bolster your claim?

The most left-leaning radio station I know of has consistently criticized Obama ever since he became president.

I'll offer one example of how his governing hasn't been anywhere near "extreme left" - the PPACA.  An extreme left healthcare system would be direct socialized care.  It takes a number of steps to the right to get to the ACA, which is modeled almost completely on a Heritage Foundation proposal for healthcare delivery.

If you're expecting something different from the same copy/paste we've seen for almost a decade, now... don't hold your breath.

​Ummm.....uhhh.....duhhh. Ask several million refugees who've fled many Arab nations and Christians who've fled for example Mosul Iraq---maybe they'd explain to you how Obama's commitment to his extremist left base to strip Iraq of all US troops and failure to act as he stated he would act has wreaked utter havoc across much of the middle east and Europe. That's just one action from this far left ideologue of a president: the biggest humanitarian crisis to hit Europe since Adolph Hitler's Third Reich. Allies do not respect him; enemies do not fear him and to be quite honest, most nation's leaders just don't like him.

Ok - at least it's some sort of example, although unfortunately including an unnecessary insult.

The flaw in the argument is the assumption that getting out of Iraq after a number of years there is something that only the "far left" wants.  I imagine that if we could find some sort of poll, we'd find a majority of Americans wanted us out of there.

Quick research shows that in 2011 just before we got out, 75% of those polled supported the withdrawal. I'm sure that you don't think 75% of Americans are "far left", do you? And, despite the problems that happened after that, a later poll shows 61%, still a majority, support the withdrawal.

The whole Iraq mess was predictable - advisers were telling Bush what would likely happen, and he ignored them, preferring the simple idea that we'd be welcomed, and that Iraq would easily transition into a self-governing democracy. Anybody with a functioning brain should know how unlikely that was, with several hostile tribal groups held together by Saddam Hussein's brutal government.

What's happened in Iraq is a sad, but predictable result of our going to war there, removing Hussein, and not knowing how to knit the country together, as well as not having majority support for an endless ongoing military presence.

You might as well stand in front of a fan and pee.
