The socialist label attached to President Barack Obama’s name has been floating around for some time. On Sunday, it re-emerged when Texas Gov. Rick Perry made the familiar accusation during the NBC News GOP presidential debate in New Hampshire.
“I make a very proud statement, and of fact, that we have a president who is a socialist,” Perry said Sunday. “I reject the premise that Obama reflects our founding fathers. He doesn’t.”
Authorities on the matter are now taking aim at Perry’s “fairy tale” claims.
[Editor: Excuse me, Gov. Perry is calling a Marxist a Socialist! That’s the Truth. We agree he should NOT stop call Obama a Socialist.]
“The notion that Barack Obama is a socialist ranks among the greatest fairy tales in American society — right up there with the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, and the idea that if you work hard enough your children will live a better life than you,” Socialist Party USA spokeswoman Lynn Lomibao said in an email to The Huffington Post.
“Socialists know what Obama is: another corporate funded politician placed in the White House to protect the wealth and status of the 1 percent,” the e-mail continued. ”When Americans needed a solution to mass unemployment, Obama gave away billions in cash to bail out the banks. When Americans needed a single-payer healthcare system, Obama promoted a pro-health insurance healthcare ‘reform’ package that forced millions into junk healthcare plans subsidized by public funds. And when American workers asked for the right to join a union without employer harassment through the Employee Free Choice Act, Obama showed who he really answers to by betraying the promises he made to working people during his campaign.”
