8. Obama is not a socialist either!
A Socialist Administration would have frozen all foreclosures and renegotiated all mortgages, by nationalizing the major banks. A Socialist Administration would have lowered credit card rates from its usury levels to a reasonable level so that people could get out of debt.

A Socialist Administration would have thrown the Wall Street crooks in jail, not bailed them out.

A Socialist Administration would have launched New Deal sized works programs to put the unemployed to work to rebuild America.

A Socialist Administration would have brought the War on Drugs and War on Terror to a swift conclusion, shifting the funds wasted on them to invest in people.

A Socialist Administration would have restored the Fairness Doctrine, smashed media concentration, and fought for Net Neutrality.

A Socialist Administration would have expanded Medicare to all Americans, providing cradle to grave universal health care for all.

A Socialist Administration would have lowered the retirement age, and boosted Social Security payments, to allow younger people the opportunity to get jobs now currently held by older workers too afraid to retire.

A Socialist Administration would have dismantled the national security apparatus that has existed since the end of WWII, and expanded under the pretext of fighting terrorism.

A Socialist Administration would have send Bush, Cheney, and others to The Hague to face justice.

That's just for starters!
