Robin Leach Says Obama is a 'Socialist' & that 'He is Whipping Up This Racial War and This Economic Divide'

Robin Leach, former host of the show Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, appeared on the Fox Business Network where he told Neal Cavuto that Obama is a socialist.

H/T Newsbusters 

Robin Leach is spot on!

All I can add is, Of course Obama is a socialist!

I personally think he is not only a socialist, but a radical socialist. He is doing as much as possible to take us toward a socialist state. The Constitution is restricting him somewhat, but when he can he side steps it. As for racial conflict that most certainly is in his agenda. He must get blacks to the polling places where he will garner some 90+ percent of their votes. He is playing to the worse fears of Americans and is a disgrace to the office he holds.

Robin Leach?! Where the hell did they dig up this washed up has been?! Fox and its guests are still pushing the "Obama is a socialist" nonsense. It's time to flip that record over, only the sheep are buying it.

I also loved how Leach threw in the BS about President Obama whipping up a racial war. Predictably, he brought zero facts to back up his silly claim.

Malcolm,

Have you ever lived in a country which has instituted socialist policies?

Do you believe in the redistribution of wealth or that the wealthy should pay their "fair share" even though the top 10% pays a majority of the federal income taxes today?

I already know what Obama believes about redistribution of wealth. He believes in it, very much so.

Do you believe that the "99%" has a right to the 1% money or do you believe what the 1% earns is their money?

Do you and progressives in general believe in the natural law or do you believe that society shapes your social mores and values?

If I am not mistaken didn't Obama say to judge him by the people who surround him? I would argue that would include people who were influential in his life in the past as well as in the present.

Did Obama centralize the student loan industry, part of the auto industry, part of the banking industry (if not all of it), AIG, and the health care industry?

Did Barack Obama state that he would raise the capital gains tax for purposes of fairness even though that would hurt the entire economy?
This article is from 2010 but our economy is still in a fragile state.

Damn Teresa, for a minute I thought we were playing 20 Questions! Anyway, here you go:

Have you ever lived in a country which has instituted socialist policies? Yes, I live in one now. So do you. The Veteran’s Health Administration, Medicare, and Medicaid are all examples of socialized medicine.

Do you believe in the redistribution of wealth or that the wealthy should pay their "fair share" even though the top 10% pays a majority of the federal income taxes today? No and yes. Although I’m not in favor of taking from the rich, I believe they should pay their fair share. As for what the top 10% pay, check this out:

Do you and progressives in general believe in the natural law or do you believe that society shapes your social mores and values? Why are you asking me that? What does that have to do with your post?

If I am not mistaken didn't Obama say to judge him by the people who surround him? I would argue that would include people who were influential in his life in the past as well as in the present. Teresa, if you wanna play that “guilt by association” game, remember it goes both ways.

Did Obama centralize the student loan industry, part of the auto industry, part of the banking industry (if not all of it), AIG, and the health care industry?

Did Barack Obama state that he would raise the capital gains tax for purposes of fairness even though that would hurt the entire economy? Although he said he’d raise capital gains tax for purposes of fairness, whether or not it hurts the economy depends on one’s political viewpoint.

Since Robin Leach failed to explain it, I’ll ask if you can. How is President Obama whipping up a racial war?
