    Not so great. Continue with trickle down economics, and capitalism thats what we get


    Just saying in this thread that the whole "Obama is a socialist" claim is idiotic, and just wanting to see who still believes that idiotic talking point

    I guess that is a truism but statist means far more than say a libertarian or even a conservative.

    No, he isn't and never was. He is a $ocialist.
    Sorry, pushed the wrong button.

    Obama never was a socialist. When you look at all of his policies, when you look at his tactics, it is clear to anyone who knows a shred about comparative politics, that Obama is, was, and forever shall be, a Fascist.

    Also false, but thanks for playing.

    Obama is, at best, a milquetoast corporatist and, as all politicians here are, a doubletalker (at best). We know this.

    One of the key elements of Fascism is Nationalism. I always see Obama criticized from the right for hating America. Can't have it both ways.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Statist and conservative are not mutually exclusive.
