A FASCIST BY ANY OTHER NAME

Conservatives appear confused as to what terms most accurately describe President Barack Obama and his Administration. Some use the terms liberal and left-wing interchangeably. Others say Obama’s rhetoric smacks of Marxism, while the tactics employed by his minions appear to be Stalinist.
With regard to the claim that Barack Obama is a liberal, one can make the argument that perfect examples of political Liberalism are former New York City Mayor Ed Koch and Connecticut’s Senator Joe Leiberman. Both democrats and both believing that government is best able to remedy social problems, they still maintain that a militarily strong America makes for a safe America.
Clearly, President Obama is not an Ed Koch or Joe Leiberman liberal.
Some believe that President Obama more resembles El Dulce himself, Benito Mussolini, the consummate fascist.
The fact is that there are many terms being thrown around these days — Marxist, socialist, liberal, fascist, even communist — to describe President Obama’s beliefs and policies.
