Obama is clearly NOT a socialist. If he was even mildly socialist, he would have used his considerable political capital to push for the much simpler and superior single-payer healthcare option, instead of a mishmash “reform” that may end up enriching the insurance companies and big Pharma.

So why do the right-wingers continue to call Obama a “socialist”? It’s simply because they have enough self-awareness to know that they can’t use the word “Nigger” nowadays. So whenever you hear a right-wing nutbag scream about “socialism”, just remember to internally translate to their real meaning so you can figure out where they’re really coming from.
