Is Obama a Socialist?

My conclusion is that Obama is not a socialist, any more than McCain is a socialist. Though their rhetoric differs (in non-essential ways), they both advocate some mixture of statism and capitalism. Both will increase the size of the federal government. Both support government intervention in the banking system, as we saw a few weeks ago. Both support welfare, Medicare, and Social Security. Both support reducing "emissions" to save Mother Earth. On nearly every major policy issue, Obama and McCain are indistinguishable.

  1. Would it be wrong of me to say that there is not all that much new to Barack McSame Obama?

    Peace and mirth,


  2. Bless you, Bill, for being who you are, and no, there is nothing new under the Sun, at least when it comes to candidates for the presidency. I have a prediction for election day; it will be McBama in a landslide.
