And if he's a Marxist (as is often claimed), then he wants to attain this through violent revolution.
    I refuse to vote in this poll on the basis that "Islamist Nazi" is not a choice!

    Actually, the real difference is the letters in parentheses. George Bush (R), Barack Obama (D).

    Christ, instead of all sorts of mental twists that somehow it's better, why not just admit that you are a rabid partisan who finds anything Bush did better than anything Obama could possibly do?

    Well in Canada we used to have the Progressive Conservatives before they merged with the Reform party to form the Conservatives but on a provincial level they are still called PCs. A Progressive Conservative usually has Conservative economic policy with Liberal social policy. Obama fits in here which on the political spectrum in just right of centre, whereas the Republicans are closer to far right.

    You've got it all wrong, rocket. Bush was no favorite of mine. Hell, I wanted Alan Keyes to be my president, and he made Bush look like a Left Wing nut.

    No, the real issue is that you can't accept the fact that Barack Obama is weaker than George Bush was when he was president.

    Re: Is Obama a Socialist or a Communist?

    He is definitely Communists (yes he is multiple persons) because he saved a corporation which not only saved millions of jobs, but also upheld capitalistic competition. He also mandated we buy a service from a company of our choice just like auto insurance. Also he wants to raise taxes on rich people like the other Communist presidents did (like Reagan and Clinton). Lastly, and the most despicably, he doesn't allow oil drilling in protected lands which is obviously raising our gas prices even though oil production is rising. The only reason why he did that, and I use reason loosely, is to keep the oil companies from becoming wealthier because he figured if he couldn't take it away, he may as well cap it. Sound reasoning and I dare you to question it.


    Note: I am obviously being higly sarcastic. Obama has done nothing that hints of being a Socialist. He may borrow ideas from somewhat Socialist policies but he is not a Socialist

    There's nothing conservative about Hussein's approach to the economy.

    1. Who the hell refers to someone by their middle name?
    2. How are his policies Marxist or Socialist?

    1. I go by my middle name.
    2. His mantra of redistributing wealth?
