  •  I've heard the following labels on Obama (0+ / 0-)

    Socialist
    Communist
    Fascist

    And all coming from folks who are Republican or conservative.

    Here's the context:

    If Barack Obama were a socialist president, he'd Fidel Castro running Cuba (although Castro is now out of power).

    If Barack Obama were a communist president, well, he'd be President of China.

    If Barack Obama were a fascist president, well, he'd be running Germany under Nazi rule.

    All these socialist, communist, fascist labels are from people who use them mainly as fighting words without no real understanding of what they mean.  Therefore, best not to take the folks who say them seriously.
