Obama Sure Is Touchy About Being Referred To As A Socialist

I'm no socialist, Obama tells CEOs

Market Watch

Barack Obama told business leaders Wednesday that he's no socialist plotting a government takeover of the economy.

His administration isn't anti-business, he said in a speech to the Business Roundtable, an organization of chief executive officers of major U.S. corporations. "It's pro-America and I don't apologize for it."
"Contrary to the claims of some of my critics, I am an ardent believer in the free market," Obama said. "I believe businesses like yours are the engines of economic growth in this country."

"I firmly believe that America's success in large part depends on your success," Obama said.
"We are all in this together," he said in asking the business leaders to help him create a smarter government that will be pro-growth and pro-jobs. Obama's remarks came on the eve of a high-stakes summit with congressional leaders about the way forward on health-care reform, momentum for which seems to have stalled on Capitol Hill just short of the finish line.
"Government hasn't stepped in to supplant private enterprise, but to catalyze it -- to create the conditions for entrepreneurs and new businesses to adapt and survive," Obama said.

Barack "distribute the wealth" Obama admitted in his first book "Dreams of My Father" that he used to carefully seek out Marxist friends:

"To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist Professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets."


Wild Thing's comment........

LOL. Sounding a little defensive isnt he? OK here you go Obama, YOU are a Marxist/Communist. He is a full blown ant-American, anti-capitalism communist.

His “I am not a crook” moment.

But he did not explain where "...I believe when you spread the wealth around it helps everybody..." fits in to his non-socialist persona.

"Ah, did not have Political Relations with THAT COMMUNISM, and I never once lied, not once, never. "Now I need to get back to the work of the American People."

496000 jobs lost this year Hussein, how many jobs did you save getting to that statistic? I'm sure Mr. Gibbs will make some prose for the anointed one.
