I see Immelt (?sp) from MSNBC in the audience laughing when he said it. Not too many of the other were laughing though...

I started to look at the video. While it was 'loading' I said to myself, "You know what's he's gonna say - lies"...why bother?

There is just no point to him anymore - say anything, do nothing.

Exactly...besides socialist is too soft a term for this student of black liberation theology, he believes in communism pure and simple.

He’s not- he’s a Maoist like that guy who lived in his neighborhood, Bill Ayers.

Nixon - 1973: “I am not a crook”.

Obama - 2010: “I am not a socialist”.

I’d believe the late Alger Hiss’s denials of being a socialist before I’d believe Obama’s.

And Hiss was a card carrying communist!

Clinton-1998 “I did not have sexual relation with that woman”.

What does anyone expect him to say publicly, that he IS? Or for him to admit that he wasn’t born in Hawaii, if that’s true? Why would he ever do that?

Has anyone ever heard a lawyer say publicly that his client is guilty? Or anyone admit to a reporter’s question that they did commit the murder/rape/theft/etc? Will the gov’t ever tell you that the economy is crashing or that someone has a suitcase nuke in NYC until afterwards? You will never hear anything publicly from people that could affect themselves negatively, ever—regardless of the truth.

I'm glad he's finally admitted that he leans more towards fascist socialism than pure socialist.

“What does anyone expect him to say publicly, that he IS?”

well, van jones said he is a communist and that communications director liked Mao and Obama himself told Joe the Plumber he wanted to spread the wealth...

True but nobody asked him the question - everybody knows anyway. He offered the information himself in his talk. It’s like his remarks to reporters after the passport breakin, post a minute of Bush bashing, poor security etc., he proceeded to add he had no concern that anything was wrong with his...He’s always on the defense when it comes to himself and when he does this it creates more doubt. For a lawyer he’s not the swiftest knife in the drawer.

Obama's denial does not mean he is not a Marxist.

His behavior makes the case that he is a Marxist. No Marxist has good plans for America or what America means in the world.

Lessening America as he says he wishes to do, will do NO ONE any good.

Can you conceive of an America defenseless and without a deterrent in todays world? I cannot. That's Obama's nightmare scenario!!!!

VIDEO: Obama says he's not a socialist (Part Deux)

But as a congressional candidate in Illinois he sought the endorsement of the New Party, a socialist organization. And to get their endorsement he had to sign a contract with them:
About 50 activists attended the Chicago New Party membership meeting in July. The purpose of the meeting was to update members on local activities and to hear appeals for NP support from four potential political candidates. The NP is being very active in organization building and politics. There are 300 members in Chicago. In order to build an organizational and financial base the NP is sponsoring house parties. Locally it has been successful both fiscally and in building a grassroots base. Nationwide it has resulted in 1000 people committed to monthly contributions. The NP's political strategy is to support progressive candidates in elections only if they have a concrete chance to "win". This has resulted in a winning ratio of 77 of 110 elections. Candidates must be approved via a NP political committee. Once approved, candidates must sign a contract with the NP. The contract mandates that they must have a visible and active relationship with the NP.

The political entourage included Alderman Michael Chandler, William Delgado, chief of staff for State Rep Miguel del Valle, and spokespersons for State Sen. Alice Palmer, Sonya Sanchez, chief of staff for State Sen. Jesse Garcia, who is running for State Rep in Garcia's District; and Barack Obama, chief of staff for State Sen. Alice Palmer. Obama is running for Palmer's vacant seat.

I view his disdain at being called a socialist as tacit admission that socialism is bad. Otherwise, why not embrace it?

Keep hammering him. A person with Narcissistic Personality Disorder cannot deal with criticism. He’ll have some kind of meltdown at some point.

It’s obvious that once you have to state “I’m not a socialist” that people are seeing through your lies to your actions.

I would love to see a video montage with Obama’s own words: “I am not a socialist” “when you spread the wealth around it’s good for everyone” etc, and his own actions - bowing to every anti-American leader willing to meet him and snubbing each of our allies in a public manner. That could be a youtube sensation in 2012, just before the election.

Let's call him what he really is.

Totalitarian -- of or pertaining to a centralized government that does not tolerate parties of differing opinion and that exercises dictatorial control over many aspects of life. An adherent of totalitarianism.
