Paul Volcker on Obama

Paul Volcker says that claims that Obama is a socialist have "no connection to reality". Of course they don't.

I understand why Repuglycans try to paint President Obama as a socialist. After all, they have also played the "show us the birth certificate" card for three years before finally giving in to being ridiculed for it.

What I don't understand is how anyone who is not a shill for the Repuglycan Party can seriously believe that the president is a socialist. I guess it comes down to most Republican voters holding a Manichaean worldview that divides the world into good ("those who see the world like we do") and evil (everybody else).

I feel sorry for them. And for the rest of us.
