Pundits escalate attacks against Obama Carla Marinucci,Joe Garofoli, Chronicle Staff Writers Thursday, April 9, 2009 PRINT E-MAIL SHARE COMMENTS (1905) FONT | SIZE:

It took fewer than 100 days for conservative critics to start lobbing the F-bomb at President Obama.

"F" as in "fascist."

Take Glenn Beck, the bombastic Fox News host, who in recent weeks has repeatedly used the term - along with references to Mussolini and pictures of Hitler and Lenin - to describe Obama's efforts to revive struggling banks and automakers.

The American Spectator, a conservative publication, earlier this month ran an essay on Obama titled "Il Duce, Redux?"

And TownHall.com's David Limbaugh went even further: He called Obama the head of a "Gestapo government" during a recent San Francisco radio interview.

After 8 years of constantly bashing Bush, it is finally not cool to bash the President.

Yes it does. I've been saying for a long time that Hussein has been mimicking Mussolini's arrogant posture.

“Fascist” should be used over and over again. It’s accurate and it bothers the left.

I'll never call Mister Obama a "Facist". The word has too many connotations. Also, some people are inured to the term.

I believe that one could make rational, empirical observations that Mister Obama conducts himself more like a collectivist-redistributionist-Marxist than a free-marketer, more like a muslim than the Christian he pretends to be, and more like an America-hating apologist than any president in our rich and diverse history.

I'll add that Mister Obama has (to this non-psychologist's eyes) all the listed symptoms of a malignant narcissist, and that he is completely unable to speak without a teleprompter (raising a worry that he might be being programed by a cabal of far lefties who do his thinking for him).

All of this, but not a "facist".

Haha they’re up in arms over “Fascist”? What about all the “George Bush is a NAZI” over the last 8 years? What about all the George Bush assassination films?

“All of this, but not a facist.”

But he is a fascist. How are any any of the symptoms that you described any different from Hitler or Mussolini?

"They can't get any thing to stick to him," he said, citing a New York Times poll this week that showed that two-thirds of Americans approve of Obama's job performance in office, while a record low of 31 percent said they have a favorable view of the Republican Party.

Well, if all you call are people on government tit, that's what you'll get.

Critics are "grabbing on to whatever they can," Glaser observed, a tactic that is sometimes head-spinning. During the 2008 election, Obama was accused by many of these same voices of being socialist and "he wasn't patriotic enough," Glaser notes. "And now, he's fascist."

So, he had to get into office to show his true fascist self.

“For the most part, volleys from the left have not been loaded with overheated political rhetoric.”

Remembering the Bush years, I am LMAO over this dipweed comment. These reporterettes (no macho males there, for sure) need to go back to kindergarden.

I've got more pics of him with that arrogant, cocked back head, but I found this one first. It is by far the most evil looking I've seen. You can see the evil in his eyes!

The real cover would have that picture of Obama and words saying why socialism is good for you.

In this case everything said about their Precious and them will be TRUE. They are fascists run amok with the power. They are showing it time and again with their power grabs and the Census fraud with ACORN and now the push for citizenship for all the illegals. They live and have lived on lies and cannot tolerate any opposition, but they are in for a fight with what they have planned. All of us have not been deaf, dumb, blind, stupid to what they are about. And the people in this country who have been suckered into the great Demonrat myth are in for a rude awakening as well.

Well lets see....

The government owns majority stake in the major banks and insurance industry and has outsourced a large portion of control to European Socialists at the IMF.

This Administration is heavily involved in Transportation and with Obama taking over the big 3 he will control that and force a government agenda on those corporations.

This Administration is using a green energy Push to take over Utilities and the rest of transportion.

Obama is attempting to make this a One Political Party country by silencing critics. (”You can’t just listen to Rush”, “I Won”, “Republicans have no plan”, “Republicans caused the mess we are in” “Inherited, inherited, inherited”.

The major media outlets are being controlled with a Liberal bent making them a form of Pravda that covers up mistakes and mis-steps in order to garner greater public support.

Mis-information tactics are being used by the White House to rally the people in support of Government take over of Health Care, Education and Energy.

If that ain’t facism then What is?
