The New “Intellectuals”

April 2nd, 2010 by Chuck · 4 Comments · Uncategorized

In a recent interview Obama mused on the label of Socialist that many apply to him. 

“I do think that everybody has a responsibility, Democrats or Republicans, to tone down some of this rhetoric. And the truth is some of these comments when you actually ask, well, this is based on what? This notion that ‘Obama’s a Socialist,’ for example. Nobody can really (he chuckled) give you a good answer — much less when they, you know, make…”

“They would say mandating that people have to buy (health) insurance or something like that,” Smith pointed out.

“Yeah,” Mr. Obama said, “the — the sort of plan proposed by current — Republican nominee Mitt Romney, yeah. So it – it — it doesn’t make too much sense.

So, instead of defining Socialism and explaining how his political philosophy is different from it, he simply resorts to the answer an 8 year old would give: He does it too!

This is the brilliant intellectual idolized by the Left.

    Obama has taken control of two automakers, dictates CEO pay, is nationalizing health care, has cabinet members who idolize Mao, wants vast new regulations such as cap and trade, and has stated a desire to “spread the wealth around” — and he thinks it is irresponsible to call him a socialist?

    Perhaps he answers like an 8-year old because he understands the audience.

    “Perhaps he answers like an 8-year old because he understands the audience.”

    Possibly. In which case, instead of being stupid, he is evil.

    Obama imagines that he can easily distance himself from “socialists” by pointing out the similarities between his policies and that of a Republican?

    Let’s hope that backfires on him, and wakes up more people to how mainstream socialism has become.
