Answer by ChillYourBananas
yes he is a socialist. He is making the rich pay more than the poor. He doesn’t have common sense and is probably the dumbest president ever.

  • If you lie with dogs you will get up with flees!

  • I sue Red States

    Yes. Get him!

  • Barack Obama has been surrounded by nothing but Leftist anti-Americans his entire life. The only reason it’s not completely obvious to everyone is because the media is a branch of the Marxist system that is trying to take over our country. It’s absolutely insane that we’re sitting around allowing this to happen.

    AND we have proof of that in the media by JournoList being exposed.

  • Yes, I judge a person by the company he voluntarily keeps, not by accident of birth.

    I also judge him by the intellectual quality of his comments, questions and the rigor of his analysis – or lack thereof.

  • *Yawn* NEEXXTT! We’ve seen this a million times before, and it has no merit.

  • Barack Obama is a great president, you should start respecting him.
    I can always tell when a troll gets on here bashing him, because they always have to call him by his whole name as if his name is a reason not to like him.

    I’m sure when Bush was president you probably didn’t refer to him in questions as George “Walker” Bush. So cmon get real and start respecting your country and your president. Stop with the ranting and bashing of a good man who’s doing his best to get our country out of the mess that was left by our previous president.

  • Oh give me a break. He is a Capitalist Democrat through and through. Tell me, do you really know anything about Socialism? Please explain in detail what you know, since you want to portray yourself as an expert. Bear in mind that it is a complex economic/social system before you open your yap about it.

    Psssst….Socialists and Communists aren’t the same thing.

  • yes indeed, it shows how great a man barrack hussein obama II is, he has done so much for the country he works so hard, his wife and children don’t even have the time to spend with him while there on vacation in spain during his birthday wich he has to spend alone or along with vera baker? the man works so hard, its amazing how he did all that with the amount of golf he plays, we are truly blessed to have a hard worker like him as presdient,

    imagine what he is going to try to do to us next year?

  • I thought the clothes made the man?

  • Yes, you do judge a man by the company he keeps and the people on your hate list look pretty good to me. I especially like Jim Wallis’ adherence to New Testament Christianity and Van Jones would’ve been a very capable and competent Green Jobs Czar. My favorite quote of all time comes from Nietzsche: “That which doesn’t kill me makes me stronger”. Do you do anything but hate?

  • Paul Grass®™?

    Yes he is and in my opinion he is a tyrant in the making, with zero respect for the Constitution, the laws of this great nation, nor the will of the people, and he himself said we could and should judge him by those he surrounds himself with

  • No, I do not consider him to be a socialist. Nor do I judge him by the company he keeps.

    I do judge some, not him though.

    And for the record, he is not a socialist (nor is he a racist, or the anti-christ).

    My father is a communist, and I am a socialist. Obama is neither.

  • First of all, I am NOT a fan of Obama, but I’m so sick of people calling him a socialist when several everyday aspects of America are socialized. We’re drowning in hypocrisy. Every child being able to go to school for free, is that not SOCIALIZED? Police and firefighters supplied by the government, are they not socialized? I know I like kids not to be stupid, and I like for my house not to burn down. Perhaps Obama is a socialist. That doesn’t change the fact that he is unfit to lead a country (in one of it’s darkest hours on top of that). If he could do his job well–my imagination at work–and be a socialist at the same time, there wouldn’t be a problem. But people would make a problem out of it, because ‘socialism’ is like a curse word for some even when it keeps their kids educated and their homes out of ashes.
