Gee, how could the Washington Post have gotten this so screwed up? I heard Sununu's comment and he meant exactly what he said, it was pretty clear. Mr. Sununu, like a lot of us, feels that Mr. Obama hates what America is. Obama even said he wanted to fundamentally change America, meaning make America into a country more to his liking. That too was pretty clear and Mr. Obama has shown by his actions these past 3.5 years just exactly what type of country he wants America to be. Socialist, think of France and go to the left a bit more. This is no surprise, Share the Wealth meant exactly what he wants. Some work and all share the wealth, not according to how hard you work, but according to your needs (as defined by the Government). That's why he had to say that any successful business was not due to hard work but do to the resources provided by the GOVERNMENT. That's pure socialism. It's a sign of the collective mentality. No one is better than anyone else, we all are supposed to work hard to provide for those who prefer to not work at all. So the Post totally got it wrong and we are still dealing with a President who does not like America as it is. That's all Sununu wanted, he wants Obama to learn to be an American in America as it is meant to be, not some copy of a socialist state.

With the m.Brotherhood infiltration, McCarthyism was not responsible for bombing buildings in New York City.

McCarthyism is the WH demanding the record of political donations of any company doing a Fed contract bid.

McCarthyism is the Dems condemning any one opposed to their Neo-Marxist ways as a RACIST.

Willard should invite Nununu and Bach to speak at the R Convention - along with, of course, The Wasilla Quitta.

Obama's actions reveal his hatred for an Independent and self sufficient America.

There is no "Muslim Brotherhood infiltration," but thanks for admitting to your new version of McCarthyism.

Foreign terrorists bombed the buildings in question (there was one in Washington, too, in case you didn't remember) and have been severely punished and their leader killed. Thank Mr. Obama for that, ingrate.

You are an idiot.
McCarthyism is the practice of making accusations of disloyalty, subversion, or treason without proper regard for evidence.
The primary targets of such suspicions were government employees, those in the entertainment industry, educators and union activists.
Suspicions were often given credence despite inconclusive or questionable evidence, and the level of threat posed by a person's real or supposed leftist associations or beliefs was often greatly exaggerated.

Now does that sound like the
Frightwing or the
Left?
Addlepate.

We're being shown today that in many ways McCarthy was right. "McCarthyism" is a term coined way back by the Daily Worker. No surprises there. I'll bet BHO is a subscriber as well as a daily reader.

Most of you folks are ignorant to how much MaCarthy said proved to be true. Look up the Venona Files and check your history and you will become enlightened.

Thanks for ADMITTING to the connection between old-time fascist McCarthyism which used anti-Communism to subvert America and destroy its political opponents, and modern McCarthysim (Bachmannism?) which uses anti-Mohammedanism to subvert America and destroy its opponents.

I'll bet you're a daily subscriber to Limbaugh, Faux News, and far-Right online media.:)

All the Venona Files do is prove what we already knew - that there were Communist agents working for the USSR in America in the postwar years. Duh!

The point is that McCarthy and others USED this fear of Communism, and presence of Red agents, to whip up fear and to gain political advantage and power for their own purposes. They ruined a lot of innocent lives in the process, too.

Much like modern Conservative ReTHUGlicanism...

The post once again attempts to carry water for their marxist leader. This article is nothing more than an attempt to stifle successful portrayals of their dictator-in-chief.
