What an asshat. Castro is a commie dictator. How can he even begin to compare the two? The right also compares Obama with Hitler. He was a fascist dictator. Obama can't dictate shit. He's no dictator. His party can't get anything done because the right obstructs everything. So what is Newt whining about?GINGRICH: I don’t believe that President Obama in any way is like Fidel Castro. But I do believe he is an exactly in the tradition of the French Socialists or the Italian Socialists or the German Socialists. I think he’d have been very comfortable in the Social Democratic Party in Germany. I think he would have been very comfortable in the pre-Tony Blair Labor Party in Great Britain. I think he represents a strain of left-wing big government. Government is smart. You’re stupid. Government should decide everything. You’re not capable of it.
And let’s look at his policies. Listen to his rhetoric. This is somebody who really does believe that if you’re in private enterprise and you go out and you work hard, you’re somehow doing bad things.
How is Obama promoting big government? If anything he's promoting big military industrial complex and letting big business regulate itself. He's supported corporate welfare. Doesn't sound like a socialist to me. How is he personally hurting businesses? How does Obama do anything? He can't wrangle shit from the congress. If the right had their way, we'd be run by corporations and the rest of us would be serfs. I don't have a clue what Obama stands for but it isn't socialist.
Newt doesn't give an example of how Obama is a socialist or explain why he claims that Obama is a socialist to the dumbass Faux News viewers who wouldn't know a history book if it was glued to their eyeballs. No one on Faux News bothers to explain anything... they just blow shit out of their asses and the masses buy it.
Matt Yglesias explained:
So where does Obama fit in? Is he a fascist or a socialist? Or a commie? Or a nazi? Or what?The Social Democrats were the main source of opposition to Hitler at a time when the Communists were bizarrely maintaining that there was no difference between the two and the mainstream parties of the center-right decided that it made sense to form a tactical alliance with Hitler. Social Democrats stand for a generous welfare state and active labor market policies. Nazis try to conquer the world and send people to the gas chamber.
And if Obama is a socialist, what does that make ME?
