Barack Obama, Socialist

Senator Obama has made it crystal clear he believes in redistributing income from those who earn it to those who don't:

From Fox News:

"Barack Obama told a tax-burdened plumber over the weekend that his economic philosophy is to 'spread the wealth around'...

"'Your new tax plan is going to tax me more, isn't it?'" the plumber asked, complaining that he was being taxed 'more and more for fulfilling the American dream.'

'It's not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they've got a chance for success too,' Obama responded. 'My attitude is that if the economy's good for folks from the bottom up, it's gonna be good for everybody ... I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody.'

Yep, let's all work harder to achieve success so that our money can be "spread around."

I don't think so.

Rush Limbaugh spent most of the day today discussing the devastation an Obama Administration and Democratic Congress would wreak on the economy. It was not a pretty picture.

Update: Ed Morrissey comments and has video of the exchange.

Most people voting for Obama have no idea what socialist means, none.

McCain needs to use this exchange in an ad pronto and explain the issue in simple terms. Time's a-wasting and this could be a great campaign issue if McCain will use it.

Meanwhile, a sobering story at Power Line about Obama's plans for a "tax credit welfare state."

Best wishes,
Laura
