Barack Obama is a socialist.
I seriously saw this belief expressed just now in a comment in a debate at Dagbladet online. And sad to say it's not the first time I've come across it.
I can hardly comprehend how ignorant a person would have to be to genuinely believe this. You would have to know nothing about the American political landscape, and not that much about our own either.
In actual fact, the guy is somewhere to the right of the Progress Party.
(I'm all for Obama as US president, but let's not kid ourselves that he's comparable to anyone on the Norwegian political scene. If he was running for office here, I, ahem, don't see myself voting for him any time soon.)
