      Or socialist. Though the two sides have differ in their misunderstanding.

      In the doc Pelosi did on Obama opposition, one astute young man described it as halfway between communism and Nazism. But mostly Nazism. Cuz Obama.Report

        That’s true enough. Also, reaching any conclusions about this stuff is a bit of a fool’s game since the conventional definition of “a socialist” is anyone who supports social safety nets and the ACA.Report
