Mirengoff on the Socialism Question

by Stanley Kurtz

Powerline’s Paul Mirengoff is running a series of posts that draw upon evidence from my new book, Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism. Each post attempts to answer the question, “Is Barack Obama a socialist?” Here you can find Part One, which covers Obama’s early biography. And here is Part Two, Mirengoff’s latest post in the series, which covers Obama’s early political career. Part Three will ask whether the conduct of Obama’s presidency has been consistent with the thesis that he is a socialist.
