Let’s ask Barack:

Stick that in your pipe and smoke it Senator McCain.

    Please be specific. In what way is Barack Obama a socialist any more than John McCain?

    I don’t see McCain talking about doing away with all progressive taxation. Nor do I see him advocating total elimination of taxes or public/private enterprises. He voted FOR the nationalization of the nation’s banks. He advocates government purchase of private mortgages.

    I’m not reading anything in to this. I’m going on McCain’s clearly stated public positions in this campaign.

    So how is Obama a socialist and John McCain something different? Seems to me the only difference on this issue is where they want to spend the money. If anything, McCain is advocating a far more “socialist” agenda than Obama.
