Opposing Obama's Socialist Agenda

The whole thing about Obama's so-called socialist agenda is stupid. That's inarguable. He's about as centrist as one could expect a Democratic president to be. I've figured out what's really going on.

There are a lot of people who are going to dislike Barack Obama because of the color of his (father's) skin. They're never going to admit it, though, often not even to themselves. Nonetheless, they're going to be biased against him. The ridiculous "socialist agenda" attacks give them a channel for these feelings. It's stupid, it's factually incorrect, and makes them look like a bunch of idiots. But it's not racist, at least on its surface, which is all they're looking for.

Seriously? Why is the best rebuttal anyone can come up with towards Obama's opposition racism? I'd think that incredibly dumb argument would be completely laughable if not for how often the mainstream "media" drags it up.

There's a deep paranoia in this country that we're heading toward European style socialism. The recent spate of bailouts and nationalizations feeds much of it. Of course, a lot of that started under W, but you don't hear the right yelling as much about his complicity.
