    No, the view is he’s a Soviet styled Communnist and a usurper. Obama is not a natural born citizen and is inellegible to be President.

    More finger pointing. Obama is no more socialist than any possible presidential candidate. The president doesn’t make these decisions anyway. The plans for what our government is going to do has been layed out for decades.We do have a corporate/socialist government but I think the finger pointing at the oversimplified stereotypes is just another distraction. If they just functioned within the boundaries of the constitution, we wouldn’t be having these problems because it limits their power.

      Well said, MrSafetymeeting. Most of the problems we are facing today started long before Obama got elected. I wish some of my fellow conservatives would turn off Fox News and start thinking for themselves.

    The title of this video should be,

    “Majority of Americans Believe Obama is a Socialist (even though majority of those Americans don’t even know what socialism is)”

    This fox zombie is blaming the poor and saying those on wall street didn’t do anything wrong. What a wacko.

    I guess the world looks better with a blindfold on.

    Ron Paul is insane. He talks about redistribution of wealth, as if the problem is the middle class has been getting wealthier.

    In 1976 the bottom 99% had 80.1% of the wealth (top 1% had 19.9%). Today the bottom 99% have 53% of the wealth (top 1% have 47% of the wealth)

    Fox is also the reason we were duped into getting into a unfunded war in Iraq.

    A study (Norton & Ariely, 2010) reveals that Americans have no idea that the wealth distribution (defined in terms of “net worth”) is as concentrated as it is. When they were shown three pie charts representing possible wealth distributions, 90% or more of the 5000, whatever their party affiliation, thought that the American wealth distribution most resembled one in which the top 20% has about 60% of the wealth. In fact, of course, the top 20% control about 85% of the wealth.

    b/c of fox.

    Anyone who’s walked into a bank in the past couple of decades knows what went on.. All those new desks & glossy loans & bonds being pushed.

    Banks, especially high-street, fine you for sneezing variety, tripped over themselves rushing to sell their ‘products’.

    That wasn’t Govt, it was flagrant deregulation. Reagan & Thatcher introduced this while attacking unions, manufacturing & skills.

    Most got poorer while a tiny few got richer by selling OUR public utilities and housing..= Scam.

    I’m a left wing guy and I really liked Obama at first but he’s losing it more every day. He is turning out to be a corporatists, which isn’t a left/right issue. I’m a left wing libertarian, emphasis on the libertarian part.

    ‘Corporations own or operate water systems across the globe that bring in about $200 billion a year’
    Look into what has happened with Africa’s fresh water supplies, and how large corporations have been trading their water as comodity. Then come and tell me how absurd an idea it is that some countries are poor because others exploit them.
    This guy is a joke

    Fox News is for the clowns, they only want free market when it comes to the american family scraping by. They have no problem supporting the idea of corporate welfare. We don;t want any more trickle down economics, trickle down is redistribution of wealth from the many to the few.

    Tax cuts for the rich make the rich richer, that’s it.

    I love Ron Paul, but I dislike the blanket statements about “academics” by David Assman. He should be more specific. The last thing we need is a dumber America or a negative opinion of academia. Also, &*^% Fox news… seriously. Doesn’t anybody remember the primaries when Ron Paul was enemy #1? It will happen again when Fox chooses Palin for 2012.

    Obama is not a left wing socialist, sorry. Saying something loud often enough is enough to make most American people believe it. Ron Paul, I’m ashamed that you would give credibility to this pathetic, over the top propaganda piece, you have shown that you know better, act like it. Corporate socialism is not the socialism this piece of garbage is talking about.

    Well if the American people would read there bibles instead of pretending to know the interpretation thereof, guess what? Jesus was and is a socialist therefore, Barack Obama is in good company.

I watch the real news tv sometimes. not fox

    Listen people…lets just take a bit of a step back here…Obama has been called a socialist. What does socialism mean? It’s not properly explained so how can you justifiably call someone a term that is undefined? Wait a second…maybe Fox News have a vested interest in calling Obama a socialist (after all, in the land of the free press of America, its not a good thing to call a president apparently) ? Hmmmmm

    Stop spinning layers of horseshit Fox…throwing a lifeline to banks and GM isn’t Socialist takeover’s…it’s making’em loans to keep them from goin’ outta business and losing millions more of American jobs…They’er not even ‘Bailouts’..they are loans which are being paid back with interest…If Obama was a big bad Socialists these dickheads on Fox would be playing sniff the turd in a Gulag labor camp rather then hocking up dumb on the public airwaves…

    this guy doesn’t say what socialism today is – large govt funded by ever increasing tax dollars that redistributes the wealth upwards to the wealthy. (via bailouts, etc) i’m glad ron paul put it straight. no a rose is not a rose at all in this case. smells like shit to me
