    In 2004, in a Cato paper, he claimed that the FDA cost more lives than it saved.

    These dumb-***** really need to make their mind up. Is President Obama a communist, socialist or a fascist? He can’t be all of them at once. And the national embarrassment of NC continues…

    I await the World Net Daily comments…

    Well, finally a decent point by Alan. Looking at several charts on the choices looks like Obama is quite the hybrid of Mixed Socialism and Cronyism….probably a bit of Facism as he has some strange dealings with corporations too. I guess like everything else he cannot make up his mind on what to be, he just knows he is not in favor of freedom.

    GOP Rules, I await a decent point from you. You do understand there’s a difference between socialism, communism and fascism, don’t you? I know the TaliBaggers have a difficult time understanding this, I guess all that foaming at the mouth inhibits the ability to think straight, and for oneself? “Not if favor of freedom”, you’re scraping the bottom of the barrel with that one.

    GOP has a point. Obama seems to have a hard time choosing which oppressive regime to follow. He seems to pick the worst traits of each.
    Alan, you obviously have not researched the similarities and differences between these models. Not totally unexpected that you would weigh in without any thought though…..just keep on trollin with those ad hominem attacks rather than adding to a discussion.

    LSD,

    I understand you hate the President and will say just about anything to besmirch him, even to the extent of conflating completely different political ideology and accusing him of being all of them simultaneously. That’s flat out crazy talk, the sort of thing I would expect to hear at a TeaBagger event, or Faux News, or CPAC etc. etc. Like many right wing zealots, the term “socialism” is thrown at this President (or any Democratic President), without having a clue as to what socialism is (or ever having been in a “socialist” country). But uninformed crazy talk is what the Republican party has sunk to, the lowest common denominator (The Tea Party) is pulling all your strings, and make you all look like a bunch of foaming at the mouth, crazy talking, nutcases.

    PS. “Keep on trollin” LSD, it’s more fun when you have to tag-team with the other interns.

    NC is a garbage heap. I live there. We are full Republican and they are dismantling anything benefiting the lower and middle class at light speed.
