Skip to comments.Obama fights 'socialist' tag
Posted on 04/06/2012 4:42:31 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
President Obama, in defending his vision of government's role in American lives, has increasingly turned to variants of two terms: "American exceptionalism" and "socialism."
"My entire career has been a testament to American exceptionalism," said the president on Monday. "I will cut some folks some slack for now because they are still trying to win their nomination."
Obama followed that remark on Tuesday by equating his tax increases with those of Ronald Reagan "who as I recall is not regarded as a tax-and-spend socialist," as he put it.
At a fundraiser, last night, Obama affirmed the importance of "exporting our values" because "thats part of what makes us exceptional." Earlier in that same speech, he said "we should have a commitment to our seniors and to the disabled . . . Thats not socialism," he added.

Hey, is that your shooting range?
He is a Marxist revolutionary.
By turning full blown Communist Dictator?
Hopefully the toilet range.
Barack Obama doesn’t give a fig about the disabled. That’s why he supported leaving babies that survive an abortion to die gasping for air for hours after they are delivered.
OFUHRER ... watsamatta .. Truth SUCKS, doesn’t it!!!

By turning full blown Communist Dictator?”
Nobody asked him if he was a Communist dictator.
>>My entire career has been a testament to American exceptionalism,<<
he is already on record as saying there is no such thing as “American Excptionalism” — that the USA is the same as Luxembourg or Haiti in terms of its meaning on the world stage. That every country has “(country) exceptionalism” — he won’t acknowledge that the USA is the greatest force for good on the planet ever. If we wanted to we could conquer the planet in pretty short order — American Exceptionalism is what keeps us from doing so.
Release the college transcripts. The REAL birth certificate would be a bonus.
Good for him, he’s no socialist like my late father, he’s a damn Communist like Fidel and the Gay Leader of North Korea.
What is he doing then?
Obama is a socialist/communist. We are about to be asked to decide between him and another socialist/communist in November. I will say it again, I will never vote for either.
Calling Zero a Socialist is like calling him a right-winger.
Oh really? So kind of His Majesty to allow us little peons to romp around unrestrained "for now".
Every word this guy speaks causes me to shudder. He had delusions of godhood.
What is the difference between a socialist and a Democrat? What is the difference between Ovomit and any other Marxist rabble-rouser who has injured mankind?
Democrats are generally less intelligent, and more gullible. Ovomit is less intelligent, with less scruples.
I prefer to call him a neo-Marxist.
Career? What career? He's been nothing but a grievance monger, a communist, and an anti-American pol. I don't know what is more ridiculous - the notion that he's had a "career" or that he thinks he's a champion of American Exceptionalism. Every day he opens his yap and another pathetic utterance falls out.
“Obama fights ‘socialist’ tag”
And he is completely justified in so doing.
As any communist would be....
Obama would have brought this up in 2008 but “nice guy” McCain decided not to call Obama a socialist or a radical. Look where that got him (and us).
Perhaps Communist or Marxist or Marxist-Leninist would be more correct? Just asking.
