Ask The Card-Carrying Socialists: Is Obama One Of Them? CNN http://www.cnn.com/2010/POLITICS/04/14/Obama.socialist/index.html?hpt=C1 Billy Wharton should be happy."Socialized health care" is on its way. The "socialist agenda" is taking over America. And best of all, Barack Obama, a "committed socialist ideologue," is in the Oval Office. But Wharton, co-chair of the Socialist Party USA, sees no reason to celebrate. He's seen people with bumper stickers and placards that call Obama a socialist, and he has a message for them: Obama isn't a socialist. He's not even a liberal. "We didn't see a great victory with the election of Barack Obama," Wharton says, " and we certainly didn't see our agenda move from the streets to the White House." "It makes no rational sense. It clearly means that people don't understand what socialism is."
