For the second time in as many days, a prominent Republican has likened Pres. Obama's policies to socialism.
WASHINGTON (CNN) – Another prominent Republican told the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday that the president’s spending plans are pushing the country to the brink of socialism.
Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina, the only member of the senate to earn a perfect rating from the American Conservative Union, called President Obama “the world’s best salesman of socialism” on Friday in describing his prime time speech earlier this week.
Socialism is the new GOP meme word for the successful execution of democracy in America by the people.
The strategy is brilliant and the Dems are clueless as to how to respond, and in fact have been caught flat footed.
The GOP machine has won another important battle on another important front in the war to control the terms of the discussion.

It is past time to take these idiots on and take back the our language from these antisocialists.
Socialism was always defined as not Feralism, or Social Darwinism, that those who make decisions for many (either Corporate or Government) need to be held accountable for the quality of those decisions.
This is Socialized Child Socialism not Orwellian Socialism the many propagandists rushed to claim that they were Socialists, but were of course the opposite of that.
Please, Please, the next person who has the "Socialist" epithet thrown at them turn it back by telling the idiot that unsocialized Pirates looting the Civilization are mistaking Feral for Free, and even the fattest cat at the top is worse off in such a failed state, as they are trying to make of America.
