Rush: Obama 'Is Running for Re-Election as a Socialist'

By Grant M. Dahl | December 8, 2011 | 10:20am EST

On yesterday's show, Rush Limbaugh said Pres. Obama has "announced to the world" that he is a Socialist who is “running against the United States of America for re-election.”

“So what we have is Barack Obama, President of the United States, announcing yesterday in full-voice that he is running for re-election as a Socialist” said Limbaugh of Obama's speech this week in Kansas.

Limbaugh then recalled how many had sought to distance Obama from the label of Socialist in 2008. Now, he added, Obama was basically admitting he was indeed a Socialist after three years in office

“Remember how we were mocked for calling Obama a Socialist during the campaign? Well yesterday Obama announced to the world in no uncertain terms that he is a Socialist if not a Marxist,” said Limbaugh.

Limbaugh later added that, by proclaiming himself a Socialist, Obama was basically running against the United States and everything it has ever stood for, in his bid for re-election.

“Barack Obama is running against the United States of America for re-election” he said.
