Turn Out

Obama did not turn out to be an orthodox liberal. He turned out to be a Communist. Community organizer? Black liberation theology? Share the wealth?


Any one who didn't see this guy coming wanted to be rolled.

I don't think Communist is the right word. There's a lot of theological baggage to Communism that Pres. Obama has dispensed with. He's perfectly happy to work with private corporations as long as they toe his line. That might lead one to claim fascism, but there's little sense of extreme nationalism, and no funny uniforms.

I'm not sure we've got a word for it, other than the most generic--corporatist, statist, something like that. He's a classic machine politician writ large. It's Chicago-on-the-Potomac.

There is nothing about fascism that requires nationalism. Fascism is simply an extreme form of collectivism; socialism is one of its subsets. BO is indeed a fascist, but primarily because he is a devout socialist. Much like Benito.
