Roger Ailes: Barack Obama an unsuccessful socialist

By: Meredith Shiner November 17, 2010 07:31 AM EST

Fox News President Roger Ailes says in a new interview that President Barack Obama is failing and has a "different belief system than most Americans."

“The president has not been very successful,”Ailes told The Daily Beast's Howard Kurtz. “He just got kicked from Mumbai to South Korea, and he came home and attacked Republicans for it. He had to be told by the French and the Germans that his socialism was too far left for them to deal with.

“He just has a different belief system than most Americans," Ailes added.

But Ailes defended former President George W. Bush, whom he dubbed as a "poor guy" forced out of the national spotlight but regaining popularity for having left it.

“This poor guy, sitting down on his ranch clearing brush, gained a lot of respect for keeping his mouth shut," Ailes said. "I literally never heard an Obama speech that didn’t blame Bush.”

The problem is that he has been dangerously successful. He, and Socialism will fail eventually, the question is, will they fail before the country is destroyed?

Don't flatter him. 0b0z0 isn't a Socialist. Call him what he really is, a Communist.

Yeah, but he screwed up big time... he tried to boil the frog all at once, instead of slowly. The frog noticed and got mad and is now doing its best to hop out of Bambi’s pot.

>> He, and Socialism will fail eventually, the question is, will they fail before the country is destroyed?

Good question; I pray the answer is YES.

Too bad so sad. I had somebody from Denmark on another forum b!tching about how "Obi isn't what we were promised he'd be", etc. I told her, in so many words, to STFU. The Euros begged us for this anti-American assclown -- now they complain louder than anybody. I'm a little sick of Europe whining and stomping there feet over our elections.

What Ailes and the the old-time GOP are trying desperately to figure out is how far left it is safe to go to win more elections. I.E., how to sell Lindsey Graham or equivalent to white men over 35 and still hold onto women, independents, and maybe even get some minorities.

Someday, it might even occur to them to come out with a constitutional platform. If these Republicans had been around in 1860, there would still be a Confederate States of America, with all the trimmings.

We racked up a victory this fall, but turnout for the other team was low, and the GOP was too broke to win the Senate.

He has to try to speed things up. Distroying the US would be the jewel in the crown for Soros. Soros is close to the end of his life and he wants accomplish his lifelong dream while he’s still around to savor it. He has to push this goal.

There are countries where it has worked, Sweden, etc. The Netherlands could be construed as socialist. I think it’s Finland where everyone makes about the same salary no matter what their jobs and from what I’ve heard they’re very happy.

Problem is you must have a population with a good work ethic - once the takers start multiplying then it starts crumbling.

Hard to imagine the US ever making this work however, it’s just not our culture and we have too many people here who would never get off their butts as long as the politicians make someone else pay their way.

When was the last time you heard of a life saving medical innovation coming out of Sweden or Finland? So much for socialism working.

BTW I play online poker at Full Tilt poker and listen to Europeans (Germans and Scandinavians mostly) b*tch about the taxes they pay and the cost of everything from gas to beer.

The O’s demise slated to begin on November 23rd (Supreme Court hearing Kerchner v. Obama et al).

http://obamareleaseyourrecords.blogspot.com/2010/11/youtube-attorney-mario-apuzzo-commander.html

I have a feeling the Republicans delayed their summit meeting with Obama until November 30th to see what the outcome may be. Why have a summit with an illegitimate prez?

My sister married a Dutchman and they have been quite happy with their system despite the high taxes.

My brother in law’s father is way better off with his government pension than our mother with social security.

But as I said, once the population changes and the attitudes toward a free ride change then it starts crumbling. And, I also think if they had to pay full price for their own defense it would strain their systems significantly.

Anyway, that’s just IMHO.

The problem is not Obama’s success. We kinda lucky - he’s apparently pretty stupid and he’s slipped the control of his handlers.

The problem is the constituency that voted for him and will vote for any other commie pinko fellow traveler that comes along. I’m almost beginning to believe that we ARE headed to another civil war. IF it weren’t for entertainment media generated apathy, we’d probably already be at the shooting stage...

“He just has a different belief system than most Americans," Ailes added.

A slight disagreement.

Most Americans don't have a belief system.

Of those that do, yes, his is diametrically opposed.

Close enough. No need to split hairs.

Commie/Marxist/Socialist/Leftist...they're all different shades of the same anti-American, anti-Constitution mindset.

They also have lived under the umbrella of the US Military for decades and they did not have to project power beyond their own borders.

The label, "Progressive" is only new to folks under 40. Those of us who went to school in an era when kids still got a semblance of an education, know better.

I remember my uber-lib brother once telling me, "You need to be a Progressive." I replied, "Oh, you mean Commie", and laughed so hard in his face, that he shrank into himself. He honestly thought that he was pulling a fast one on me.

How have you been, WF?

No need to split hairs.

Rather, branches not hairs! LOL!

I'm sure there are books about the differences and I'm no expert. Changing their name daily says a lot!

What I notice is the brainwashing that goes on in the MSM. They are "willing" to defend 0b0z0 on the "Socialism" charge because they can say that Western Europe isn't "that bad" anyway. After all, Western European countries are democracies that respect their constitutions and freedoms, albeit "less freedoms" than ours. Case in point, the Newsweek front page: We're All Socialists.

Communists follow exactly what you said, anti-Constitutionalists and Anti-(their people) because, by definition, a Communist rule IS nothing but ruthless slavery.

Our Republican/Conservative Reps. are quite afraid of upsetting the Media. We The People tell it like it is!

Yeah, books written by liberal eggheads, no doubt.

Perhaps my thinking just isn't "nuanced" enough, but as far as I'm concerned, Communist/Leftist/Socialist/Marxist/Progressive/Liberal - are all just different shades of the same death cult philosophy.
