    Re: Is Obama.....?

    The guy is doing the best he can with what was left to him from the last President. ANd that aint good. I feel that Obama has the best of intentions and is trying to make this Country a better place. He has MANY issues on his plate. And that doesnt even include the Conservative propaganda hate machines. Its a tough job and a brutal balancing act. I much rather have a 3rd Party in office though.

I don't really have a problem with it, but I have picked up on it in conversations... like they just think it's strange or weird
    Well you mite have some re-thinking to do. The NAACP admits that a conservative guess of American blacks being bi-racial is around 70%, and also say it is probably higher. Using your logic, we would no longer exist as a race.

    Just food for thought.

    Obama's problems are only partly the fault of any of those. His biggest problem is inexperience and his Clinton Esq staff of useful idiots giving him horrible advice.

    Nope. In order to be socialist he would have to be taking ownership of private industry. (this does not mean regulation, such as in the health care bill)

    But he would prefer single payer health care (no insurance companies)

    On the flip side, there is stuff like him being a proponant of tax cuts to small businesses which is decidedly not socialist. I think overall, even though he may lean that way in one or two issues, overall, he seems leans towards private industry.

    My guess is that we have a difference in view. Excuse me if I put words in your mouth, but my guess, based on your posting history, is that you would see any crossing the line as a reason to call someone socialist while my view is more nuanced and takes into account a balancing of all of his views.

    So would I. Then again, I deal with insurance companies every day and I understand their scams and see them everytime I deal with them. Of course, that doesn't make me a socialist either. Try not to through around generalized words when you are talking about specifics. I'm sure that Obama is in favor of the government-run postal service. If that makes him a socialist, that means every President we've had has been a socialist. See what happens when you overgeneralize?
