Skip to comments.New York Times: Obama Is a Socialist
Posted on 05/09/2012 10:34:57 AM PDT by yoe
We've been skeptical of the arguments by some of our brethren on the right that Barack Obama is a quasi-socialist or a crypto-socialist ... or just a plain old socialist. But now the New York Times is weighing in, in favor of the proposition.
In an article (Change in Paris May Better Fit U.S. Economic Positions)" the Times reports:
"With the victory of the Socialist candidate, (François Hollande), in the French presidential election, the White House has lost one of its closest allies on the Continent, but perhaps gained one with economic policy beliefs more closely aligned with its own....Mr. Hollande seems 'naturally more palatable to the administration,' said Justin Vaïsse, the director of research for the Center on the United States and Europe at the Brookings Institution....Observers said that...Mr. Hollande was likely to hew closer to the Obama administration on economic issues....Mr. Hollande...said that the countries had a 'convergence' on economic issues."
So, according to the Times, the French Socialist is "closely aligned with," "naturally more palatable to," and "likely to hew closer to" the Obama administration on economic issues. Is, therefore, Barack Obama (more or less) a socialist?
more, never less.
No, Bill. Obama is not a socialist. He is anti-American, a bigot, a socialist, a communist, nazi and facist.....all combined into one evil, hateful human being.
Or an International Socialist?
"Just because 0bama's policies are socialist doesn't mean he's a socialist!" - Bill 0'Reilly
This "skepticism" is why I never bother with The Weekly Standard.

Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
“...Obama is a Socialist and a Marxist..”
AND a muzzie.
This is the scariest part of the article: “We’ve been skeptical of the arguments by some of our brethren on the right that Barack Obama is a quasi-socialist or a crypto-socialist ... or just a plain old socialist.”

"The economic and political theory and practice originated by the German political philosophers Karl Marx (1818-83) and Friedrich Engels (1820-95), that holds that actions and human institutions are economically determined, that the class struggle is the basic agency of historical change, and that capitalism will ultimately be superseded by communism."
I see Lefties deny it at least weekly. They aren’t constrained by reality.
You need to consider that when referring to Bill Kristol, you’re talking about a guy who still doesn’t think the Muslim Brotherhood is dominated by Islamic radicals. He’s a little slow that way.
And a pervert and a hate-whitey black racist (even though he’s less than 1/2 black himself).
Wrong. He is a hard core communists and his Administrative empire supports this. HE IS A COMMUNISTS.
