If It Looks Like a Socialist, Walks Like a Socialist, and Talks...

I've covered this before - the smartest and coolest President the world has ever seen bristles at being called a "socialist".  His media surrogates go into fits of apoplectic rage and defensiveness (and arrogance) when their Lightworker is accused of harboring a love of socialist ideology.  And yet, time and again we have direct links to Obama, administration officials and his campaign, dropping subtle and not-so-subtle references that unmistakably conjure up pride of place for socialism.  From Anita Dunn's hero Mao Tse Tung to the new "Forward" campaign slogan, these are not coincidences.  These are smart, deliberate people making important decisions over which alot of thought and discussion is invested.  There is the possibility that these references are harmless and coincidental, but that is a small probability.  More likely, these are carefully planned subtleties that signal to a certain type of voter.  The Obama administration has unleashed a barrage of socialist-infused policy and socialist-derived political tactics in three years and now they are running for re-election under the banner of a time-honored socialist rallying cry.  What gives?  Isn't it well past time to consider that if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and talks like a duck...it's a damn duck?
