World's clumsiest socialist

In his column on rising economic inequality, commentator Thomas F. Schaller asks "Is Obama the world's worst socialist?" (Sept. 3). My answer is, he may not be the worst ,but he may be the clumsiest.

The man is trying to bring his pinko teachings to the U.S., but it's going way too slow and he has no idea of how to speed it up. He is exactly the "radical, anti-colonial, socialist, Kenyan, Muslim non-citizen president" that Mr. Schaller insists he is not.
