Default Jeb! Obama a socialist?

'I don't know' if Obama is a socialist'

(CNN) – Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush told an interviewer that he could not say whether or not President Barack Obama is a socialist, and that the president would not have been elected if he had been honest with Americans about his agenda.

Bush would not answer the question of whether he agreed with the assessment of some congressional Republicans that the president is a socialist. "I don't know. Define socialism for me," he told Esquire magazine.

"It's a word… I believe he's a collectivist. He believes that through collective action, through government, you can solve more problems." He added that he believed the word "socialism" was a pejorative, and "didn't help" the GOP make its case.

The Democrats have won on tactics," he said. "Barack Obama would not have gotten elected if he'd let us in on his secret plan prior to the election," he said, pointing to the president's economic agenda and energy proposals.

"….He made it appear like McCain was going to raise taxes, which was unfair, but there was no response back. When there was an ideological component, it was generally centrist or even center-right. Had he said what he was going to do as a candidate, (Obama) would have lost."

I wish the Bush family would just go away. They've done enough damage already.

It's not just what the Bushes did. It's the long-term political effects of their policies. If you're under 35 you don't remember Carter and you have little meaningful memory of Reagan. That' s the real demographic problem for the GOP. For an entire generation of Americans, the Republican Party = those two mealy mouthed big spending RINO losers. That gives the Democrats a big electoral advantage, and the nominees are generally picked by the extreme wing of the party

What's even worse is they talked like fiscal conservatives but didn't govern accordingly. So that's going to make small government a hard sell in the future. People are going to say "Oh sure, that's what Bush said. How did that work out?" Of course it isn't what he did, but people are going to remember what he said.

Bush I now?

I mean, allowing that Clinton balanced the budget through a combination of a tax increase, social security tax on payrolls, and a bubble (which later burst), how does Bush I now get the rap of being fiscally "loose"?

Well, he did run up record deficits. Or at least it was the record until his son and then Obama made him look like a piker.

The farking problem is that his agenda was right out in the open. He told America what he wanted to do and he still got voted into office.

Change is not always for the better folks. Uncle Obama wants $1,800,000,000,000 in deficit spending next year!! WAKE UP AMERICA!! We're already bankrupt, we just haven't been held accountable for it yet.

He's already taken it to all of us - I started stocking up on Preparation H the day he was elected.

Look - I'm not fan of Jeb Bush. He's an overgrown lummox who always came across to me as being dumb as an asparagus tip, though I held and still hold a lot of respect for both his father and our former President. However, for the first time in my life, I actually can agree with most of what he stated, especially this comment:

Quote:

He's spot on here. Voters bought and ate Obaaaaaaaaaaama's creme of bullshit pie and those of us who saw him clearly for what he is will pay the consequences just as those who put him into office will feel the brunt of their misinformed vote.
