    President Obama’s cult of personality and feel-good message of “change” allowed him to sail through the 2008 campaign without being thoroughly vetted by the press. No one took the time to delve into his past and look at his influences, his actions, or his political theory. And when something did come up, the press allowed him to skate on by rather than press him for real information (Jeremiah Wright, anyone?).

    Recent guest Stanley Kurtz decided to do what the press failed to do – take an honest look at Obama’s politics. His investigation resulted in Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism. In this episode, Kurtz discusses the many socialist influences in Obama’s life, from his college years to his time as a community organizer, with men such as Bill Ayers, Frank Marshal Davis, and Jeremiah Wright.

    In examining Obama’s main mentors, Kurtz begins to see a clear ideology that motivates the President’s disdain for the middle class, take-no-prisoners approach to passing socialized healthcare, reluctance to discuss political theory and desire for, ultimately, a socialist revolution.

    Here is the full episode, you won’t want to miss it:

    "take-no-prisoners approach to passing socialized healthcare"

    yes. because passing a bill that is essentially the same as the republican counter-proposal to Hillarycare is revolutionary

    You know, the lefty socialists on this board will say that is just rightwing paranoia because they can't believe that their messiah could be a socialist, but he is.

    No it isn't, he is a socialist. Listen to what he says, it is easy to believe. He told Joe the plumber he wanted to spread the wealth, that is socialist thinking.

    He's socialist, yet he hates the middle class. How does that work?

    So... i suppose that Francis Bacon was a socialist too?

    "Above all things, good policy is to be used that the treasure and moneys in a state be not gathered into few hands. For otherwise a state may have a great stock, and yet starve. And money is like muck, not good except it be spread."
    -- Francis Bacon; from 'Of Seditions and Troubles'

    or Thomas Jefferson?

    "legislators cannot invent too many devices for subdividing property, only taking care to let their subdivisions go hand in hand with the natural affections of the human mind."

    or James Madison?

    "reduce extreme wealth towards a state of mediocrity and raise extreme indigence towards a state of comfort"

    OMG It's a vast socialist conspiracy!!!!
