McCain calls Barack Obama a Socialist

October 19, 2008

It seems like I have been waiting forever to hear someone in the McCain campaign call out Barack Obama for what he really is; a socialist, and finally John McCain has done it.

“At least in Europe, the Socialist leaders who so admire my opponent are upfront about their objectives,” McCain said in a radio address. “They use real numbers and honest language. And we should demand equal candor from Sen. Obama. Raising taxes on some in order to give checks to others is not a tax cut; it’s just another government giveaway.”

 Obama supporters do not seem to care about the racist reverend that Obama called his spiritual adviser, or his association with an admitted, unrepentant domestic terrorist, his relationship with the corrupt ACORN, or even the shady land deals that he was involved in with Tony Rezko.

 None of those lines of attack helped John McCain gain any traction with the voters. But along came “Joe the plumber” and caught Barack Obama off guard. What he thought was just a simple off the cuff remark about spreading the wealth around seems to have people taking a second look at him.

 It is no secret that Barack Obama is a socialist, but when he accidentally put it into words it may have awakened a few people who didn’t realize it.

 John McCain has found an angle that appears to be a winner, he is gaining momentum and the polls are tightening. He must continue to hammer Obama and call him the socialist that he is if he hopes to have any chance of winning.

 In a rare unscripted moment Barack Obama let the cat out of the bag, now he must hope that the cat doesn’t scratch him.
