Obama phones NYT to explain why he’s not a socialist

Washington Times reported The phone call came after the president was asked aboard his plane: "Are you a socialist as some people have suggested?"
Maybe he is not going to stop with Socialism, and move on to Communism.
He was clear in his first answer: "You know, let’s take a look at the budget – the answer would be no."
What is there in the budget that says no.
"Is there anything wrong with saying, 'Yes'?" a Times reporter pressed.
And he did not answer the question.
"Let’s just take a look at what we’ve done," Obama said, ticking off efforts his administration has made to stabilize the economy. But he acknowledged that, as he told Joe the Plumber, he plans to try to spread the wealth around.
And is that Socialism or Communism or just crooked Chicago politics?
"If you look on the revenue side what we’re proposing, what we’re looking at is essentially to go back to the tax rates that existed during the 1990s when, as I recall, rich people were doing very well. In fact everybody was doing very well. . . . We said that we’d give a tax cut to 95 percent of working Americans. That’s exactly what we have done."
$13 a month, decreasing to $8 a month. Whoopee!!! And meantime you destroy small businesses so people don't have jobs and are just dependent on government handouts.
