    Anyone who claims Obama is a socialist doesn't know what a socialist is.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    How much longer can the Fed prop up stocks?

    What's been going on, the Feds have been propping up Obama's economy since 2009.

    I'm sorry, but are you using the DOW as your litmus test for a president being socialist?

    Sweet mother of God, I hope you're kidding. I mean, he's not a socialist, but it's really taking some restraint on my part not to do some stuff.

    Yes, by all means he is a socialist. By everything I've seen, he gives all manner of socialized consideration to corporations, but seems to expect individuals to fend for themselves. The ACA is a perfect example, it's much more of a gift to insurance companies than it is healthcare for country. And the foreclosures/loan mods mess.... and the delay of the corporate mandate, but not the individual, .... need I go on? Really? Yes, like his predecessors seem to free socialize the losses, socialize mandatory customers, and allow the profits to be privatized.

    Anywho, as to the OP: Obama isn't a socialist. He is and obviously has always been a Kenyan Islamist Communist Atheist. Duh-hhh...

    There are times and reasons when a president or member of congress needs to go against the will of the people. But you don't have to make a habit of it.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
