GOP Rep. Akin: Obama Is A ‘Flaming Socialist’ On Debt Negotiations

In an interview with PoliticsMo, Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) called President Obama a “flaming socialist” who is incapable of negotiating with Republicans on raising the debt ceiling. The fact that Akin would deem Obama a hardcore socialist after the president has caved to nearly every Republican demand, agreeing to slash trillions in spending and cut social safety net programs, in exchange for a what should be a non-controversial move to pay off the country’s debt shows just how far Akin is willing to diverge from reality to attack the president.
