Socialist Party USA Leader: Obama Isn’t A Socialist
While many conservatives continue to refer to the President as a socialist, actual Socialists seem to disagree:
Full-fledged U.S. socialists are relatively scarce these days — three socialist-oriented presidential candidates received about 21,000 votes among them in 2008. And current socialist leaders don’t share the right-wing view that Obama is a fellow traveler.
“It makes absolutely no sense,” said Greg Pason, national secretary of the Socialist Party USA. Obama’s health care overhaul “is anything but socialist. It’s bailing out for-profit companies.”
So, well, there’s that.
