To Taibbi's point below...

Ben Stein, is a funny guy. I disagree with him politically most of the time, but in this piece he points to just how far off the deep-end the "Obama is a Socialist" folks have gone.

"The flat truth is that in February 1974, with the hounds of hell baying at him about Watergate, with a national trial by shortage under way after the Arab Oil Embargo, with the economy in extremely rocky shape, and with large Democratic majorities in both houses of Congress, Republican Richard M. Nixon submitted to Congress a national health care bill in many ways more comprehensive than what Mr. Obama achieved."

It also illustrates how accurate Taibbi was when he said, "The new Democratic Party is an excellent substitute for the old Nixon/Ford Republican Party. They even passed Nixon’s vision of a health care plan."
