Obama: I'm More of a Moderate Republican Than a Socialist

Mm-hm.

During an interview with Noticias Univision 23, the network’s Miami affiliate newscast, Obama pushed back against the accusation made in some corners of south Florida’s Cuban-American and Venezuelan communities that he wants to instill a socialist economic system in the U.S. The president said he believes few actually believe that.

“I don’t know that there are a lot of Cubans or Venezuelans, Americans who believe that,” Obama said. “The truth of the matter is that my policies are so mainstream that if I had set the same policies that I had back in the 1980s, I would be considered a moderate Republican.”

3 And again the regressive left is trying to redefine existing terms. Obama is not, by any stretch of the imagination, a moderate. He's not a moderate DEMOCRAT, let alone a moderate Republican. He's a left-wing extremist.

And slowly, slowly, the language inches further to the left.

34 If the GOP truly wants to take the initiative and put the Democrats on the defensive, then thewords 'socialist' and 'socialism' should be used often and loudly whenever referring to the President and his policies. Many Americans have a visceral distrust of socialism and other Marxist variations in spite of the efforts of Oliver Stone, Michael Moore,and others in the MSM to sway public opinion. It helps, of course,that the President and his pals truly are a pack of old-school, authoritarian Leftist ideologues.

We could have used a good moderate republican like Barack to run for the senate instead of Christine O'Donnell. He would have won.

Imagine all the bipartisan agreements that could have been reached since then. It would certainly have helped point out the extremism on the right if we had more moderates in office.

You see, the party's moved so far to the right, that reagan wouldn't have recognized it. That's the lib spin (well, one of them) and so he jumps in it and botches it. Because he's dumb, boring, and lazy.

so, yeah, during the 80's the GOP was reasonable, see, and then republicans today are so wack. "I probably am closer to the halcyon days of noble GOP rationality."

What a loon.

This is like when he thought he was bill clinton toward election day (he claimed he lowered deficits). Rush talked about how the new Clintonian grand unification theory is that Clinton's 1993 tax increases led to the 90's (internet) boom.

138 Can't find the chart now, but objective indicators suggest Congress is the most polarized it's been in 100 years (which seems true on face value, too). Considering Obama was the most liberal Dem Senator, he's on the very edge of that polarization gap. Plus, one of the main ingredients to the gap is that today's Democratic Party is the most liberal it's been in 100 years, so, yeah, no, Obama's not a moderate Dem by today's standards nor especially by historic standards.

No, Barack Obama is obviously not a communist. Nor indeed a Marxist, nor a Maoist. After the enormously public failure of communism, he’d be a fool to be – and he isn’t.
Barack Obama might possibly be a Muslim. But this is not an issue, since there is no law in the USA barring members of a religion from holding a public office.
Barack Obama is not a pathological liar, although he, quite by necessity and like all other Presidents is a habitual liar. At least he doesn’t start wars with his lies.
Barack Obama is not a homosexual, as his wife can attest.
You just a sad, sick, pathetic hateful racist! The people who call our President a socialist use this rhetoric for racist reasons and/or because they’ve never cracked open a book on political theory.
socialism
so·cial·ism
[soh-shuh-liz-uhm] Show IPA.
noun
1.
a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole.
2.
procedure or practice in accordance with this theory.
3.
(in Marxist theory) the stage following capitalism in the transition of a society to communism, characterized by the imperfect implementation of collectivist principles.
Based on this definition, what action has the Obama Administration taken that qualifies as socialist?
Nothing at all, but the frothy mouthed wingers can’t call him another word so they settle for that.
It’s no mystery here that I’ve been critical of many of Obama’s policies, however, I have spoken out when he has been unfairly characterized or treated by the right-wing media or absurd wing-nuts (some of whom post on this blog) in a variety of ways which contradict each other, and NONE of which Obama is: Liberal, Marxist, Communist, Socialist, A Muslim, anti-American, not American, gay, traitor, Usurper, an Enemy of America, a Racist, a Narcissist, a Liar, and on and on. In an alphabet of lies from the right I posted, I’ve said this fact once, I’ll say it again. The only reason the party of hypocritical louts choose to call Barack Obama a Marxist, Communist, Muslim is for the sole purpose that they cannot call him what they really want to call him, and that is NI@@ER!

152 “The truth of the matter is that my policies are so mainstream that if I
had set the same policies that I had back in the 1980s, I would be
considered a moderate Republican.”
