Yeah... I don't think that word, "socialist", means what you think it does; unless, of course, you're referring to schools, police dept., fire dept, the military,... ect. Tea Party phuqwitz are all the same- dumber than a rock.
Socialism is a low form of communism. Look it up! Numb nuts.

Obama is in the beginning stages of his "redistribution o wealth" programs, extremely high taxation on all working class citizens and even higher on high earners..... That is "holding back the exceptional" why strive to make a good living when it is all going to be taxed away?

Obamcare is a huge tax pool, and if you think its helping anything with rates and prices, I want some of what you are smoking, my premiums have already doubled and will go up more this year, is that progress to you??

What exactly is Obama doing that is holding back the exceptional? Name some specific policies. What is he doing that makes him a socialist? Something had to be done with healthcare- the costs were getting astronomical. Maybe not the best, but it had to be done

There were higher taxes under Reagan- we need taxes to pay down our debt and pay for our previous bush jr and bush sr wars. The highest wages include a lot of investment income....I don't think people are going to quit investing excess money due to higher rates.

We don't need higher taxes to pay down our debt.... We had a balanced budget under Clinton...... What we need is smaller govt, less entitlements, less govt spending....

The deficit has grown 4 fold since Obama took office, the "pay for bush's war" argument is mute.........

the war didn't end as soon as Obama got in office- it still incurred significant expenses- to make that argument, you need to look at the rate of increase and what makes it up. I'm for smaller government too, but we have to generate revenue b/c we are deep in the hole

The war encompassed every single year of Bush's presidency? So your argument is still negligible because the deficit was still nothing as it it right now? Obama's policies are destroying this country..... We do not need more revenue, we need less govt spending!!! There are more people on welfare than anytime in HISTORY!!!!

Go take a look at a chart of the costs of new policies bush vs Obama. Bush tax cuts without spending cuts created a huge gap- you can't cut taxes without cutting expenses. Bush added 5 trillion to the deficit based on a combination of tax cuts and increased spending. Obama added 1 trillion, primarily due to stimulus spending, not welfare, which helped prevent another great depression. And he killed Osama and the stock market is an all time high.

Well I suppose he didn't jump out of a helicopter Rambo style and finish him with his bare hands, but I'd say that would be frowned upon for the President to do- I'm sure Bush would have done it that way though- he seems a little more hands on. The point is that he had the balls to make the. All to send troops into another country with a very high stake if he wasn't there. The buck stops at the President- he called the shot and made the decision to act on that intelligence, so of course he played an important role in it.
