Bill Clinton mentioned full employment in a television commercial endorsing Obama.
Joe Biden mentioned the right's desire to keep us in chains.
Both of these were references from the Communist Manifesto.
Words are words and mean nothing when coming from politician. Obama's policies especially the big one has no inkling of left wing ideology. I have heard that actions speak louder than words. For those of us who believe that know for a fact that Obama isn't a leftist at all.
For those of us that get pissed at political rhetoric used during a campaign season and never focus on anything else after the campaign is over, it is quite clear. Obama is certainly a leftist.
Do actions speak louder than words? Not always. So I guess it's up in the air.
