Obama a Socialist?

Ed Morrisey, proud Ushanka owner and Hot Air blogger, takes a stab at this question in a HotAir post today.

However, that’s not to say that Obama doesn’t believe in the Leftist principles of top-down statist control and redistributionism. One only need to consider his policies on capital-gains taxes, new federal spending, and massive expansion of regulatory and bureaucratic management to understand that much about him. Obama may not be a Bernie Sanders Socialist, but his proposals rely heavily on the same philosophy.
