Remember all through the campaign, when anyone who suggested that Obama was a Marxist was called paranoid? Remember how people said it was crazy to think Obama would seek political control over the economy.
More and more, the nuts are people making claims like this from the Washington Post:
Not only is (Obama) not a socialist, he may in fact not even be a liberal. Socialists understand him more as a hedge-fund Democrat — one of a generation of neoliberal politicians firmly committed to free-market policies.
While the Post protests that Chairman Zero isn’t a socialist, the “free-market hedge-fund Democrat” demands that Congress give him the power to take over any business he wants at will.
Maybe that isn’t socialism, by their definition.
Maybe it’s just tyranny.
