The government doesn’t own the means of production. It just gives all the orders.
Of course, it can’t be fascism, either, because not even President Obama can make the trains run on time.
Btw, Mussolini never actually got the trains to run on time.
But he did have the power to fire the heads of large Italian Businesses.
It’s Obamaism! All the downsides of fascism/socialism/statism, and with massive, multigenerational debt too.
To quote a line from “Blazing Saddles”:
Whatever it is, I hate it!
As someone who doesn’t hate Obama, I’m glad rbj finally came up with some progress in the “What Insulting Term for Obama?” sweepstakes. Socialism, fascism, statism, and the rest just weren’t accurate, effective, or productive. Maybe now that the hissy fit portion of the grieving process is winding down, we might get an opposition again rather than a bunch of crybabies who want a do-over (I’m looking squarely at you, Coleman.)
Oops, spoke too soon: I guess July 4th is going to have another round of Hissy Fits (since they finally found out what teabagging means, they had to choose the next most recognizable name.)
Jon is Perez Hilton without the photoshopping skills.
What we need is a productive term for Obama. What should it produce? Ideally, the kind of mindless enthusiastic groveling we see jon doing towards Obama, or Obama doing towards Arab dictators. It would be inaccurate to call Obama a statist. He said he was opposed to big government during the signing ceremony for one of his seven or eight trillion dollar spending measures.
Jon, feel free to go to a tea party on July 4 and share your mental limitations with the crowd. All those angry people could use a good laugh.
All those angry people are a laugh. I don’t expect everyone to love Obama, in fact I don’t love Obama. He was the evil of two lessers by a neck, but the one I most agreed with (which explains my what? my overwhelming lack of faith in his economic plans? my acknowledgment that he’s a politician first and a liberal second? my general unhappiness with the state of the world even with him in charge of a lot of it?)
But still, with the opposition to Obama’s policies becoming a hopeless bunch of idiots, you’ll probably have him for twice as long as you already had to deal with. Maybe I’m just angry that my prediction that Obama would only serve one term (because he would be unwilling to do what’s truly needed to work to fix the economy) isn’t likely to come true because the GOP’s political leadership is turning into a He Man Obama Haters clubhouse that is unable to come up with any real plan (yes, that would involve math) for leadership. I really don’t care if you guys ever come up with an effective term for Obama’s governance, and it’s not a bad thing for the Democrats for you guys to be too busy branding to come up with any actual budget proposals or even budget cutting proposals. Still, all this spinning of wheels to prove how tough you guys are just doesn’t get you anywhere: not with the public wondering not how many horsepower that thing has but just how stupid this show can get.
