i've asked this several times in conversations over the last few days but i don't recall an answer that really...answered the question. is sharing the wealth socalistic? is his wife saying someone have to give up a piece of the pie to get universal health care socalistic? i'm not attacking bush with this, i'm not defending mccain. i'd like for us to do what we want the politicians to do - talk the issues w/o blowing off the question with a "you're scarier than me!" reply. are his policies socialistic? again, please keep this to talking about obama's policies, and not anyone elses in diversion.
