O’Reilly: Is he a socialist?

Romney: You know, I prefer to use the term that he’s just over his head.

O’Reilly: Yeah, but you got to look at his economic plan. An economic plan that’s top down, federal leadership, getting us out of the recession--- he spent trillions of dollars on that. And people say, Listen, the guy’s a socialist — it’s class warfare that’s what he’s gonna wage against you if you get the nomination: You’re a rich guy, you’re out of touch. Is he a socialist?

I am not sure of the distinction between Socialist and Communist but Obama is the one which is worse.

Mitt doesn’t want to give the game away. If he admits Obama is a ‘socialist’, what does that say about him?

You are right. I may not be able to define pornography but I surely know it when I see it.

Big Government Liberal Democrat = socialist/marxist Mitt.

Come on, you can say the words. It’s past time to quit parsing words and call it exactly what it is.

We owe our kids and grandkids at least that much, and to work our hearts out to turn their agenda around!

Obama is a Marxist Ideologue

It says that he believes he can be the first person in history to make Socialism work. They all believe that. They are killing with it.

Politically it would be disastrous to call a socialist foe a socialist when the caller is a socialist too.

Romney is the best damn chance 0bama has to claiming a 2nd term.

what does that say about him?

I think the Republican contestants should just start bashing Myth and collectively make the case that Myth is, in reality, Gorden Gekko (from the film Wall Street

The Demoncrats are going to do it sooner or later.

Has O’Reilly admitted Obama is a Socialist yet?

He poo-pooed the possibility at every opportunity for the past few years.

How on earth does Romney even get 25% in the polling?
Do people just not get he is just like BHO?
Everyday he comes out with another reason to never consider him in the primary.

Come on Mitt! Use your head!

Communism is simply one way of implementing socialism. In communism the means of production is owned by the state. In national socialism, the means of production remains in the hands of the public but the government controls the output and determines who benefits from the profits. - see General Motors for example

This state of denial about Obama has been "official" republican establishment policy since 2008. McCain hewed to it, and other, "moderate" flunkies like Bennett and Romney et al still can't bring themselves to face the truth. They have consultants, according to Rush, who caution them not to tell the truth about obama because it will "offend" some idiot in Bumf*k Iowa.

That he's been paying attention?

Why shouldn't we call him what he is? The folks over at the Socialist Review claim him as one of their own. Dr. Manning Marable, a lion of the left, openly stated that Obama surrounds himself with communists, independent marxists, and socialists, and is a student of socialism.
