He's actually taken a quite revolutionary approach to executive power, interpretation of the Constitution, and use of force. They're radically neo-conservative and imperial, but radically new and outside established procedures and principles nonetheless.

Do you think he has primarily governed as a liberal? Enacted primarily liberal laws and policies, advocated a liberal agenda, even a decidedly non-revolutionary one?

I'm genuinely curious to talk to someone I respect who views him this way and curious how they can square that image with his overwhelmingly conservative actions in office, even just those mentioned in this article for instance.
