Help me to understand..

If Obama is a “socialist”, intent on “sharing the wealth”, then why does he have “wealthy liberal backers”? Isn’t that a bit, well, broken..? I mean seriously, if he’s so intent on stealing money away from hard working rich folk and giving it to the lazy poor, then why does he have rich friends?

Personally, if a man came up to me and said “I plan on sharing the wealth, and I have many wealthy friends” and his opponent agreed with this assessment, then I would probably vote for him. This is a plan with no visible flaws.

    Because a lot of American Republicans have no idea what socialism actually is so they just throw around that label willy nilly to anyone and everyone who doesn’t conform to their ideas.

    He is about as much a socialist as I am Paris Hilton.

    Nothing is certain but I think the Republicans are betting that they will loose big in November. All predictions say the Democrats should pick up the White House ans massive victories in both houses of Congress. I imagine a lot of state governments are going to swing Democratic anyway.

    So now that GOP is a bit desperate and trying to throw anything that sticks. They do engage in odd class warfare. The charges against Obama have been used against Jews for the last 150 or so years. Jew have been accused of being wealthy bankers who control the world and radical Marxists by the same person in one sentence. Some hatreds are just very malleable.
