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."

Please speak, or write, frankly, but civilly. To paraphrase Ronald Reagan we can disagree without hating one another.
