As a Canadian and only somewhat impartial outside observer let me just state that Obama has governed from a pretty centrist position. In fact on many policies he has been centre right, and on other's centre left. The idea that he is some kind of secret Marxist is farking retarded.

Reading some of that, I can pretty confidently assume that man has not seen the movie Looper or at least did not stay long enough to see the ending.

/Will not explain to not spoil the movie for anyone else. It's a pretty good movie.

Instead of voter ID we should have a simple ballot test with the question "Is Obama a communist?". Answer no, you get to vote. Answer yes, you are taken to a special medical research facility where we can study to find out what nutrients we can get from your brain

Also, can anyone explain this popularity with in one breath decrying the liberal socialism in Hollywood and in the next applying tortured logic to Hollywood made movies to reinforce an already precarious argument?

Sigh... Did you see the Luntz "undecided" group? These are the people that don't know what the definition of socialism, marxism, communism is. That is why the Left has been meddling in education for 60 years. To produce people without basic knowledge or thinking skills.

Commies be infultratin' edumacation. Remember the people who voted democrat and "the undecided" are the ones that don't know what the definition of socialism, marxism, communism is.
 
2012-10-13 08:16:20 AM  
The problem with calling Obama a socialist, much less a Marxist, is that you run out of labels for anything left of Bill Clinton. Which would be the entire Left.

But this is a pointless debate. Obviously numbskulls like the guy who wrote this article don't care about being accurate - they just want to call up some bogeymen. And if that means that centrists are now commies, so be it.

Also, this guy must've been bummed when he went back in time and realized Reagan and Nixon were liberals.

Trust Me, I'm from the Past'
By John Drew

I watched Mitt Romney dominate the presidential debate immediately after viewing the time travel movie Looper. If I had access to time travel, I would use it now to leverage my role as the only person on Earth willing to testify that young Obama was a genuine Marxist socialist in 1980.

Energized by Romney's performance, I am asking myself what can I do -- right now -- to forestall a real-life enactment of the future imagined by Rian Johnson, writer and director of Looper. After all, Johnson's vision looked so bleak that my wife's reaction was to say: "Looks like Obama won."

If I had the advantage of time travel, I would go full-on Bruce Willis right now. I would go to 2008 and introduce myself to the television studios of Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC.

I believe that public knowledge of my face-to-face confrontation with young Obama's ideological extremism in 1980 would have helped prevent Obama's election in 2008. My account of Obama's anticipation of a Communist revolution would have alerted voters to the reality that Obama is not a bipartisan politician, but rather a longstanding advocate of class warfare and other hateful ideas promoted earlier by the likes of Frank Marshall Davis. My story would have highlighted the real Obama, the Obama who asserted, as he did at a at a Martin Luther King Day speech at the University of Chicago in 2002, "that rich people are all for non-violence" simply because "they want to make sure people don't take their stuff."

I would share with the people of 2008 that Obama is stuck in the ideological past. He is a partisan extremist who cannot imagine doing what Clinton did to save the American economy or uplift the black urban underclass. Obama is the sort of ideological purist who would never pivot to the middle. I would tell the people of 2008 that Obama's lack of bipartisan skill would blow a perfectly good deal with House Speaker John Boehner for reducing the federal deficit. I would tell them that instead of cutting the deficit in half, Obama will increase the deficit more than all the presidents before him. I would alert the people of 2008 to the fact that Obama would be eager to weaken the previously rock solid work requirements of welfare reform. I would repeat a key line from the movie: "Trust me, I'm from the future."

Lacking the option of time travel, I still think my story helps explain why it was fairly easy for Mitt Romney to defeat Barack Obama in a formal debate. I can report that young Obama was no genius. I saw signs of that young Obama last week when Romney pointed out that in 25 years in business, he had never seen a special tax break for corporations who send jobs overseas. Obama -- without his teleprompter and entourage of liberal sycophants -- is apparently incapable of reacting forcefully to a verbal punch from a true business and political heavyweight.

Temperamentally, I remember young Obama treated my more accurate understanding of world history with an abrupt, even demagogic hostility. I distinctly remember young Obama's dismissive, arrogant attitude even as I was presenting him with compelling evidence that Marxist theory was dead wrong at predicting the path of European social and economic events. I remember schooling young Obama so thoroughly in just one evening myself that he left my girlfriend's house agreeing with my more moderate neo-Marxist perspective.

Culturally, I can report that when I debated young Obama in 1980, he talked like a white guy. I did not hear a trace of the phony accent that highlighted Obama's shocking comments to a conference of black ministers at Hampton University in Virginia in 2007 regarding the redistribution of wealth. In fact, the young Obama I met in 1980 talked like a wealthy, privileged white guy. It never occurred to me to think of young Obama as African-American. After all, the African-American students at Occidental College were largely uninvolved in radical campus politics. They were more likely to be active in the Gospel choir than in the Democrat Socialist Alliance. Instead, young Obama seemed more like a foreign prince visiting the United States.

While I cannot enjoy the benefits of time travel, I do live within six hours of Las Vegas, NV. I suspect that my Bruce Willis moment will come when I share my story of debating young Marxist Obama with swing voters in the nearby Silver State. My wife and I have signed up to spend a weekend in Las Vegas walking precincts for the Romney/Ryan campaign. We will enjoy some meals, hotel accommodations, a night on the town, and an opportunity to impact this historic election. I have my tagline ready: "Trust me, I'm from the past."

Jesus Christ, these comments....

I never heard of Barack Obama until he became an Illinois senator. I didn't know anything about his past. However, it doesn't take a genius to recognize his love for socialism/communism.

I'm still amazed that so many Americans bought Obama's "pie-in-the-sky" BS. Sometimes I think voters ought to pass an intelligence test.

I'm half-willing to just hope the Republicans win this, if just to show them what the country turns into after four years of Rmoney, except that:

1. These nitwits are still blaming Clinton for 9/11 over a decade later, criticizing him for using Tomahawk missiles and sanctions...while their VP candidate suggests that we should use drones and sanctions during his televised debate.

and

On Day 1 Romney could threaten to invade Palestine and Iran both if Israel isn't declared Greatest Country on Earth by their leaders, he could declare Mormonism the truest Christianity and enshrine golden Books of Mormon on the White House lawn, he could punch Harry Reid in the dick, he could drive around D.C. with Seamus tied to the hood of his Presidential Limo, He could personally fellate every big Wall Street exec getting a tax cut on National Television (if there is enough time in 1 day), and every red-blooded Conservative in this country will STILL not let Obama live it down.

Oh yes, folks. You thought Obama being out of the White House would stop the Cons perpetual herp a derp? It's only just begun. You see it with the constant, asinine references to Jimmy Carter. They hated Jimmy so much they disparage him decades later by accusing Obama of being so much like him. I don't see how comparing someone to the genius that is Carter can be an insult, but I digress. They will treat Obama doubly so, you will hear your grandkid's kids arguing about how so-and-so is an "Obama Liberal" (if the GOP hasn't imploded long before then). That is, if the American populace doesn't come out of this recession with the impression that the Obama presidency, despite the circumstances (broken legislature), was a resounding success. Time will tell.

I have to say that "B..b..bush?" was an appropriate response to the rate of recovery post-Bush Recession, seeing as how what culminated from 8 years of wealthy tax cuts, printing money to waste overseas and loose regulation with the finance markets will take a while to fix. What is different here, IF Romney gets elected and removes Obamacare, deregulates Wall Street further, cuts taxes again for the rich, increases military spending,et. al. if he continues into the same direction Bush policies with the same Bush advisers, they will still say "B..b..b.but Obama!", even though the circumstances are completely different. During the months before election in 2008, We were in the throes of an economic catastrophe. There's just days left before the election and do things appear to be crashing down around us? Anything that happens after Romney is elected is going to be much easier to blame on Romney seeing as how he would be taking the reigns in a slow, but steadily growing economy.

Not sure how true that is anymore. Harper and most of the Cabinet members from the current Conservative party, and much of their members, pull directly from the American Neo-Conservative background. The Calgary School of Economics that they follow is pretty Neo-Con as well.

There is just some things they have a hard time changing, even though they might want to.
