    Obama: I'm not a socialist​




    By: DONOVAN SLACK

    President Barack Obama on Thursday brushed aside concerns that he favors socialism, saying in an interview with Univision that his policies are so mainstream that he would have been considered a moderate Republican in the 1980s.

    Via the transcript of the interview by Alina Mayo Azze of "Noticias Univision 23" in Miami:

    AMA: One issue that Cuban-Americans are worried about is, they believe that you favor a socialist model for our country. Cubans and Venezuelans especially because of what they have gone through. What do you think of that?

    PBO: I don't know that there are a lot of Cubans or Venezuelans, Americans who believe that. 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. I mean...,


    The president has tried to squelch such criticism before, notably telling a business group in 2010 that he is an "ardent believer in the free market." But his responses have done little to allay the questions.

    No, he does. He just supposes his supporters are more interested in the shit that comes out of his mouth than the conflicting actions he takes. He's right too. Only those who oppose him or are skeptical of his agenda seem to pin the tale on the donkey.

    He speaks they listen. He does the exact opposite, they fall silent. He is questioned they listen. Rinse, repeat.

    Yes, it's very common for folks FROM socialist and communist nations to recognize his polices right away, while many Americans are clueless about the FACT the BHO is a Marxist whose every move has been aimed at redistributing the wealth, and harming the productive and wealthy out of spite and payback.

    Go rent "2016", an examination of his family and educational history which explains it all.

    When what you are hell bent on doing under the pretense of helping the country, such as insisting on the most successful be exempt from paying higher taxes, which would NOT solve any fiscal problem, but is driven by class envy and hatred of everyone better than yourself, YOU ARE A SOCIALIST.

    When you want to rob the smart and successful to give to the dumb and dumber, YOU ARE A SOCIALIST.

    When you never had a want in your life, when you were raised by a color-blind grand mother when your BLACK father said piss on you, you know, the same grand mother you callously threw under your socialist bus, YOU ARE A SOCIALIST.

    When your extremely thin resume for the most important job in the world includes nothing worthwhile, but "community organizer" and it still manages to fool the fools, YOU ARE A SOCIALIST.

    When your own brother lives in abject poverty, while you jet around on the taxpayer's dime all over the world, YOU ARE A SOCIALIST.

    When you want to redistribute what others - infinitely more humane and industrious and smart and generous than you - EARNED,

    YES, YOU ARE A SOCIALIST!!
