President Obama has his own form of socialism

When will media outlets come to the realization that the socialism the president espouses has no resemblance to European socialism?

No, he plans to take apart our Constitution and destroy everything great about this nation. All the proof you need is out there, you just need to give him a proper vetting. I could fill up pages of things he has done since taking office that fly in the face of our laws, customs and history. It is up to the media to stop him before there is only one media source coming out of the Capitol.

Please read Sal Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" before you say I'm a right-wing nut. And it wouldn't be much trouble to Google the bios of Marx, Alinsky, Soros and several of the people with whom the president has surrounded himself. For what it's worth, I am neutral on most social issues, but on fiscal, national security and Constitutional issues, I am very hard right.

    Since the first presidential election in which I was permitted to vote (1976), I have never witnessed such vitriol, hatred and divisive governing and campaigning - and most from the liberal/progressive Democrat Party. Since Inauguration Day 2009 Barack Hussein Obama's administration has done little to bring this nation together; instead desiring to keep us divided for no other end but to assure him his second term.

    It will be his last four years (if this nation is foolish enough to grant them to him) where he will do his worst. May God help us if we lose the White House and don't win both Houses of Congress. This is the most important election in our nation’s history. No one has any excuse for not casting their vote – after all, it’s all we have now to save us.

    You know I can't even leave you alone for a couple hours and you're back at it!

    "The ignorance of these people (Obamanoids) can't be ignored..."!

    Your head must be solid bone.

    Joanne, Steve, Jeff: Disregard any questions dealing with reading this book by Alinsky person. You can be sure none of them have read it either. They just get the good parts from wacko nut conspiracy sites (well maybe Darrell has actually read it).
    I know weasel hasn't read it. How can he cut passages out of real book and post them here? Huh?

    I said earlier that I only had to prove weasel wrong one more time today, and I think cheating (in the form of serial plagiarism is wrong) is wrong so there you have it.

    I've noticed the writers of these letters all say the same thing over and over. The name calling, the connections, the past.....It's like they are stuck in 2009 and don't know how to get out. Man, at least catch up on some new stinky sources. You all are repeating yourselves.

    "And it wouldn't be much trouble to Google the bios of Marx, Alinsky, Soros and several of the people with whom the president has surrounded himself."

    As written, it sounds like Mr. Shook thinks the first two are alive and well and "paling around" with Obama. Guess he missed their DOD's when he Googled.

    And why is it that when I Google "Obama, Soros" I get a bunch of nut job websites that a certain CT loves to cite? Nothing from youtube though.

    Don't forget,she said his years ago.... as a young woman. Since then, she and others like Obama have embraced his principles. The point is she thought enough of Alinsky to base her thesis on his work.

    I wonder why the Clinton White house contacted her school and demanded they hide her thesis?

    Love the ignore app.

    What better way to filter out the whackos, nut jobs and certified loonies who have nothing whatsoever to contribute?

    Do you deny that Obama helped to fund an ‘Alinsky Academy’ through his support of The Woods Fund, a nonprofit on which Obama served as paid director from 1999 to December 2002, and sat on the Woods Fund board alongside William Ayers, founder of the Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization?

    DB, while your discussion of ancient history is fascinating (I mean, most of us were not even born in 1969) the fact remains that the vast majority of people reading Alinsky today are far right wing nut jobs who's minds have been permanently crippled by Birtherbaggerpalintitis.

    "Rules for Radicals" may have found some attention from the left back in the days of leaded gas and 8 track tapes but in the smart phone era, the book has finally come into its own as the Teabag Taliban's Koran, Bible and Torah.

    Don't forget this piece of info from the wiki page:
    'The thesis offered a critique of Alinsky's methods as largely ineffective, all the while describing Alinsky's personality as appealing.'

    in her formal academic thesis, she found it 'largely ineffective." No matter, to you, that means full embrace.

    What possible evidence is there that the respected democrats of our time know of and embrace the Radical principles of Saul Alinsky? Is there any?

    1. In 1969, Hillary Rodham wrote a 92-page senior thesis for Wellesley College titled "There Is Only the Fight . . . ": An Analysis of the Alinsky Model. The subject was famed radical community organizer Saul Alinsky. In early 1993, the White House requested that Wellesley not release the thesis to anyone.Wellesley complied, instituting a new rule that closed access to the thesis of any sitting U.S. president or first lady
    2. Barack Obama, a community organizer from Chicago can trace his political character to teachings handed down indirectly from Alinsky, a community organizer from Chicago.
    3. A film ( documentary), .” The Democratic Promise: Saul Alinsky & His Legacy is the story Narrated by Alec Baldwin, examines both the history of community organizing — through the work of Saul Alinsky — as well as the current state of community organizing. It is obvious through this film that the principles of Alinsky have been embraced and adapted by the democratic party as its leader, Obama, taught these principles as a professor in a Chicago university.

    Anybody watching the coverage of the convention? I love this bit about the delegates. Mitt Romney is so unpopular among Republicans that he is actually afraid that his own delegates won't vote for him!

    I know this guy has billions of 1 percenter dollars to spend on fogging the voters minds but, if you can't count on your own delegates in August, it is hard to see how you are even going to make it to November, let alone win an election.

    Chuckle.... another Teabag Taliban who has versed himself in the doctrine of Alinsky. The bookstores are packed with these befuddled folks, all lined up to buy the book that has ironically become the Koran of the 'Merican Mujadeen.

    Poor Alinsky, those royalty checks must be bittersweet.
