Obama the heretic?
It is fashionable for contemporary conservatives to dismiss President Obama as a closet socialist.
Perhaps he is. He does not seem to have embraced Leninism, however.
For example, he has disregarded one of the key precepts of Lenin's April Theses:
"(T)he salaries of all officials, all of whom are elective and displaceable at any time, (are) not to exceed the average wage of a competent worker."
Pravda, April 4, 1917 (emphasis added).
Postscript: The Russian in the graphic translates
roughly as "Obama lived/Obama lives/Obama shall live."
