    CNBC:

    French Socialist in Mittal Row: We're Just Doing What Obama Does

    The French politician who said Indian steel company ArcelorMittal should leave the country has told CNBC that his government is only acting like U.S. President Barack Obama.

    Industry Minister Arnaud Montebourg, a member of the governing Socialist party, caused controversy last week when he said that the Indian company, which employs close to 20,000 people in France, should leave after it said it would have to close down a factory.

    The French government announced on Thursday that it could nationalize the factory in question, with backing from an unnamed businessman.

    Montebourg told CNBC after a meeting with trade unions in Paris: "Barack Obama's nationalized. The Germans are nationalizing. All countries are nationalizing. I've also noticed the British nationalized 6 banks."

    Montebourg is believed to be referring to the takeover of struggling automakers by the U.S. government earlier in the financial crisis.

    Stanley Kurtz, a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center...Delving into Obama's years as a student and a community organizer...contended that Obama is part of a coterie of "stealth socialists."

    "Over the long term, Obama's plans are designed to ensnare the country in a new socialism, a stealth socialism that masquerades as a traditional sense of fair play, a soft but pernicious socialism similar to that currently strangling the economies of Europe," Kurtz wrote.

    Due in part to the multiple definitions of socialism, some conservatives wrestle with semantics as they seek appropriate terms for Obama's ideology.

    "Instinctively, the president is a collectivist," said Ken Blackwell, former Ohio secretary of state, "My fundamental belief is that he wants to transform our market economy into a government-controlled economy — not far afield from European-style socialism."

    "Lest we forget at least an over the shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins - or which is which), the very first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom - Lucifer."

    He nationalized Chrysler and General Motors, not to mention the entire healthcare industry.

    I do not think that word means what you think it means.

    When the president can replace company management I think he knows exactly what the word means.

    Guess that's better than being devoid of any intellectual honesty.

    OK be honest and tell us how the auto bailouts were in fact nationalization. Not even going to ask you to explain how ACA was in fact nationalizing "the entire health care industry" as britpat said, I think even you know that was bullshit.

    This is what the slim majority of Americans voted for so I don't have time to worry about them. Time to hunker down, look after your own, pray you have what it takes to stomach this moving forward garbage.
