Orszag: Obama “not a socialist”

Orszag: Obama “not a socialist”

Former Director of the Office of Management and Budget Peter Orszag told Fareed Zakaria on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” that President Barack Obama’s critics are wrong to say that he has a socialist economic philosophy.

“President Obama is not a socialist,” Orszag said. The label reflects a “yearning for pragmatic solutions to the problems that we face. And socialist just -- I mean, again, it just does not fit.”

Orszag said that given the actions that the Obama administration has taken to deal with the economic crisis, labeling Obama as a socialist is misguided.

“One would think that a socialist would be all in favor of jumping at the opportunity to nationalize banks,” Orszag said. “He has maintained the basic structure of our capitalist system despite the fact that we have gone through a very dramatic period.”

This explains it ...

Dr. John C. Drew, PhD, met Obama in 1980 and had long discussions with him about a faith they both shared: Marxism.

Drew says that Obama was in complete 100% agreement with his Marxist college professors who wanted a revolution in this country to overturn the power structure. He was consumed with the notion of wealth redistribution & more affirmative action programs to bring about less inequality and more income equality.

He had kind things to say about the Soviet Union (like Alice Palmer his mentor) S.U. was a better model than the USA !!!

He and Chandoo drove around together in a BMW. They looked like a wealthy gay couple. Looked like “multi-millionaires”. Chandoo went to the Ramadan dinner at the WH last year but “doesn’t remember meeting Obama” until a photo of them shaking hands was produced.

* Frank Marshall Davis
* Flag-stomping Bill Ayers
* Alice Palmer (Barry was chief of staff to this Chicago Communist)

“Call me Barry ...”

“My most vivid memory was in how insistent he was in arguing a Marxist-Leninist point of view.”

He insisted a real revolution was coming ... and then Marxist-Leninists would be on top !!!”

“He definitely saw America as the enemy”.

“The ruling elite had rigged our economic system to cause people to be poor, had unfairly taken all the money and that America needed ‘Redistribution of Wealth” to make matters fair”.

Dr. Drew was the founder of the Anti-Apartheid Union and the student Marxist Students Association in 1976 at Occidental College, (but has later changed his (Drew’s) views.)

Dr. Drew explains in one minute on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBGBszZ2Qw0&feature=related

No, he is a hardline Stalinist.

Stalinist = Communist that does not follow the rules and allows for a ruling elite of corrupt capitalists.

Yeah right, you a$$wipe. Name a single thing Odumba$$ has done or proposed that has been done to improve or solve the issues we face. To the contrary, everything he has done was with the intent of weakening our economy and country.

Perhaps Director of the Office of Management and Budget Peter Orszag can explain why then Obama was a member of a Socialist organization then?

"When Barack Obama successfully ran for the Illinois State Senate in 1996(as a Democrat) he was endorsed by the Democratic Socialists of America."

The progressives will deny our charges of socialism all day long. But they will never allow us to take a close look at what socialism is.

The last thing they want is to have the actual definition of socialism on the table. This is how they brainwashed half the country in the first place—the objective study socialism is not offered in government schools.

I agree he’s a fascist. He wants the government to pick the winners and losers in the economy. i e the GM bondholders got screwed and car dealers who supported Dems stayed in business while those that supported Republicans were shut down. He wants the taxpayers to prop up “green” companies while trying to drive other energy companies out of business.

“One would think that a socialist would be all in favor of jumping at the opportunity to nationalize banks,” Orszag said. “He has maintained the basic structure of our capitalist system despite the fact that we have gone through a very dramatic period.”

So he doesn't want to actually own industries, he just wants to tell them what to do.

You're right, that's not socialism, it's fascism.

But it's a fascism that lacks even the somewhat-redeeming patriotism of the original.

Actually - like many liberal republicans and most off of the democrats he’s a “Regulatory Socialist.” Meaning he may not think that the government needs to own everything - but the government can and should regulate almost everything.

Never mind that Zero and his Admin are taking over many private companies and controlling the actions of the rest.

Technically, that last is really more the Fascist model than it is Communist/Socialist. Of course, the Left has so abused the meaning of "Fascist" over the last 65 years that you get really weird and vehement reactions on this assessment from many (mostly those on the Left). Nevertheless, for those who have informed themselves on the political and economic history, it is true.

There is a Hayek quote that applies here, that I keep on my FR profile page:

Although our modern socialists' promise of greater freedom is genuine and sincere, in recent years observer after observer has been impressed by the unforeseen consequences of socialism, the extraordinary similarity in many respects of the conditions under "communism" and "fascism." As the writer Peter Drucker expressed it in 1939, "the complete collapse of the belief in the attainability of freedom and equality through Marxism has forced Russia to travel the same road toward a totalitarian society of un-freedom and inequality which Germany has been following. Not that communism and fascism are essentially the same. Fascism is the stage reached after communism has proved an illusion, and it has proved as much an illusion in Russia as in pre-Hitler Germany."

No less significant is the intellectual outlook of the rank and file in the communist and fascist movements in Germany before 1933. The relative ease with which a young communist could be converted into a Nazi or vice versa was well known, best of all to the propagandists of the two parties. The communists and Nazis clashed more frequently with each other than with other parties simply because they competed for the same type of mind and reserved for each other the hatred of the heretic. Their practice showed how closely they are related. To both, the real enemy, the man with whom they had nothing in common, was the liberal of the old type. While to the Nazi the communist and to the communist the Nazi, and to both the socialist, are potential recruits made of the right timber, they both know that there can be no compromise between them and those who really believe in individual freedom.

-- F.A. Hayek, The Road to Serfdom
The point to that is that there isn't a nickel's difference between the various forms of Statists, and Obama is just using all the various techniques of Statism as he can depending on the opportunity and situation of the moment.

Orszag probably should have said that Obama is not a doctrinaire Socialist. Socialist he is, but of a stripe of his own making because he does not demonstrate the intelligence required to have read and absorbed much to do with the history of Socialist thought.
