GOP shouldn’t underestimate Obama

Thanks for listening. Ag has thoughtfully included a link to more information about liberation theology. I would say the Wiki article is pretty good.

I would also refer you to this one for the contrast:

I don't think that this is first time the 'rock-star' label has been applied to Obama.

Though I agree, the label is dumb.

liberation theology, Although that would not mean that he definitely is a socialist. Just that he might be.

Camper,
Sure, let me tell you what my problem with the exchange is. I think that he is philosophically a socialist. In a sense, I don't really care what the specific policy is. And it's not like it's some Rubicon in the sand "on this side, you're a socialist, on this side you're not".

The reason that I feel that Obama made a socialist comment, in this case, is the "you need to assist those that come after you". I think that is indicative of a socialist mindset. Sure, I'm a big believer in charity. But this isn't charity, it's redistribution.

Also, there's his involvement in a liberation theology church. I have quite a bit of experience with liberation theology, and I would ...charitably... describe it as socialist. Although that would not be

By the way, it's not exactly a minority view: http://www.nationalreview.com/campaig...

"The latest poll by Democracy Corps, the firm of James Carville and Stan Greenberg,
... <clippage> ... "55 percent of likely voters think “socialist” is a reasonably accurate way of describing Obama."

There have been other comments, but I'm going to be lazy and not look them up right now.

My, my. More put downs!!! You're just a regular Don Rickles aren't you? Or is it Don Knotts? We're done tange.

Right back at you...
""Racism"—that mindlessly inflammatory term which a certain element is so fond of ignorantly bandying."

So then you admit that Obama still a socialist, just a nuanced one. Or just incompetent. But I guess that makes me an ignorant racist.

I'm not sure you can self-righteously accuse others of Godwin violations when you're so willing to indulge in personal attacks yourself

Whatever, go back to your tangential reasoning, tange. You were better then. Funnier too.

This particular link would seem to beer out the concern that the anointed one is a socialist.

But in your infinite wisdom you have decided that is off limits. If you, and the NAACP, ie the DNC, can say the tea party is the KKK then Tom can say that Dems are Socialist.

Or this:
http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/09/1...
"Michael Steele, the first African-American to chair the Republican National Committee, denied Wednesday that race is fueling protests."

Triple fail! Triple Godwin! And totally dishonest!

That all you got? A bunch of a libs calling the tea parties racist? Oh there's a news flash.
Fail and Double fail.

Tange.... Really ... Really...

And I'm missing your unambiguous condemnation of this bit of silliness:

Or maybe you're just interested in Godwin violations from one side.

Fail!
