Obama Ridicules ‘Socialist’ Charge, But He Admitted Seeking Out Marxist Professors and Socialist Conferences
Barack Obama is mocking the charges that he promotes socialist ideology: Obama ridicules McCain charge he’s socialist.
RALEIGH, N.C.

Barak Obama is serving only his second term in the Illinois State Senate so he might be fairly charged with ambition, but the same might have be said of Bobby Rush when he ran against Congressman Charles Hayes.

When Obama participated in a 1996 UofC YDS Townhall Meeting on Economic Insecurity, much of what he had to say was well within the mainstream of European social democracy.
If anyone can recognize socialism, it would be the Democratic Socialists of America.
Of course, Obama himself admitted openly that he attended “socialist conferences” at Cooper Union, while he attended Columbia University:
He also admitted that he sought out Marxist professors:
And now he’s pulling the socialist wool over America’s eyes.
