NYT poll: Obama is moving the US toward socialism

According to a poll by the New York Times, 52% of Americans now recognize that Obama is moving the USA toward socialism.

Only the Kool-Aid drinkers and the furthest fringes of the left still believe that Obama is a centrist/moderate. The deniers defend his socialist-style takeovers of the auto industry and health care, as well as the student loan market -- and his pending takeovers of the financial sector and energy -- as 'necessitated' by the grave situation he "inherited."

In other words, they claim he had to destroy the free enterprise system in order to save it.

So go ahead, siphon more water from the deep end of the pool and dump it into the shallow end, and see if your government stimulus spending will make the water level rise; with the tendency to spend mostly on government, and not the free market, combined with notorious government waste/fraud and inefficient bureaucracies, we'll see how that works out for you -- I'd say the water level of the pool will continue to shrink until Mr. Government finally decides to leave the free market alone.
