Feckless socialist Obamessiah......

So, when the New York Times asked the Obamessiah if he was a socialist, he apparently felt afterwards that he didn't not adequately answer the question. so what did he do? He talked only about the bailouts of the banking system. Nothing about the socialization of healthcare? Nothing about a new push towards Utopian wealth redistribution by taxing the 'rich' and redistributing it to the poor? Nothing about the push towards card check unionization of workers in the US? Nothing about the 'fairness doctrine' that promises to kick the legs out of any opposition or conservative voices?
The phone call came after the president was asked aboard his plane: "Are you a socialist as some people have suggested?"

He was clear in his first answer: "You know, let’s take a look at the budget – the answer would be no."

"Is there anything wrong with saying, 'Yes'?" a Times reporter pressed.

"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.
If you are a socialist, then why not admit it? Or maybe that does not jive with "hope and change?"
