Wharton: Obama's no socialist; he's a hedge fund democrat!

Billy Wharton of the Socialist Party has a decent piece in today's Washington Post describing how Faux News portrayed Obama as a "Manchurian Candidate" socialist, and how Faux and other outfits paraded people like Brian Moore and Wharton himself on TV as a kind of sideshow. This is a candidate for quote of the next four years:
The funny thing is, of course, that socialists know that Barack Obama is not one of us. Not only is he not a socialist, he may in fact not even be a liberal. Socialists understand him more as a hedge-fund Democrat -- one of a generation of neoliberal politicians firmly committed to free-market policies.
Oh, and it's nice to know that Shared Sacrifice scooped Stephen Colbert in interviewing Mr. Moore. Small victories and all.

Sarkozy started out really popular. The honeymoon Obama has had, will end.

Obama can't be put in the same sentence as socialism.
