Would make sense if Obama was in any way a socialist, instead of what he is, a blue-dog democrat.
 
2012-03-20 06:58:21 AM
Funny how the republicans support more socialist policies than the democrats.

I don't dislike the guy, but let's face reality here. Strip away his background and look at his policies, and you have a mild conservative. The fact that anyone sees him as progressive just gores to show how far into crazy the GOP has gone.
 
2012-03-20 08:13:28 AM
so, is fox trying to establish a correlation here? i.e. obama must be a socialist because elle macpherson, a socialist, supports him?

well, considering that the republican party is supported by millions of hardcore racists, what does that make it?

It is telling just how left leaning the majority of Farkers are when they try to claim that Obama is anything near a moderate. You must have forgotten about that impending train wreck called Obamacare. Obama is certainly trying to forget about it.

Average American: "I don't completely agree with some of the president's policies"

Libtards: "You're a racist!"

He's trying to forget that he had to settle for a plan that was created by republicans and actually implemented in one state by a republican, instead of giving us a truly socialist single-payer system.

you mean that compromise that ended up miles to the right of where he originally planned it? so far so that it mirrors the plan implemented by the presumptive republican nominee?
 
2012-03-20 08:52:44 AM
I'm a socialist and I think that Obama is far too conservative for my interests.
 
2012-03-20 08:53:58 AM
You mean a socialist favors the guy who isn't part of the nutbag fascist theocrat party? I'm shocked.

I think it's funny how Fox News thinks "socialist" is a dirty word. It's not. In fact, we need more Socialist politicians in the US. We have Bernie Sanders, and that's about it.

That said, Obama is not a socialist. Not even close. Though if you're a socialist voter, I can certainly see why you'd support the Obama before any of the Republican candidates.

100% of pretty dimwits agree: Obama is something we don't understand and therefore hate (according to Fox).

Perceptions win elections. If people hear over and over "Obama is a socialist" they start to believe it.

2012-03-20 09:05:42 AM
Quite honestly, if her choice is between Obama and whoever the GOP candidate is, it is logical that she, as a socialist, would favor Obama.

This doesn't imply that Obama is a socialist, just that he's closer to a socialists views than the GOP, which is obvious..

But yeah, Fox is probably trying to imply that a socialist [hearts] Obama, therefore Obama=Socialist with this pointless story.
 
2012-03-20 09:07:56 AM
Wait, if she's a socialist, isn't she supposed to be sharing the "wealth"? I mean, you know, from those who have to those who need.

Those people are going to believe whatever they want to believe -- the only question is if people are willing to let them define the language of the debate -- they demonize the word "liberal," they demonize the word "progressive," the demonize the word "socialist. . ."

They don't care what you call yourself, they'll demonize it.

I know one model who's a "socialist" but doesn't know what socialism is. Care to guess who?

She is an Aussie. Why are we hearing her opinion?

//Oh, because she is hot. Now I get it. Sex sells.

Socialism is certainly a more advanced social organization than capitalism. Unfortunately, Obama is about as much of a socialist as he is a muslin

Are you suggesting she doesn't pay her taxes?
 
2012-03-20 09:10:59 AM

scarmig: Wait, if she's a socialist, isn't she supposed to be sharing the "wealth"?


no she thinks the means of production and distribution should be owned or usually heavily regulated by the government. You seem to be confusing socialism with charity or something.

Yup. I wish with all my heart he really were a liberal socialist. He's lightyears ahead of the cavemen in the GOP, and he's a good man, but he's not a liberal. I wish he were.

I guess you could make that claim... if you didn't mistake personal charity for socialist economic policy. In any case, I'm always wary of anyone who claims they're a socialist while maintaining a straight face. Pure socialism is about as disastrous as pure capitalism. I often tell people I'm a dirty red Canadian socialist, but really what I support is a free market system that's tempered by a strong government that embraces socialist principles where it makes sense. This way people are freest to rise to the level of their ability and make money commensurate with that level of talent/expertise/hard work.
