Harold Simmons Calls Obama a ‘Socialist’

Harold Simmons in today’s Wall Street Journal:

“Any of these Republicans would make a better president than that socialist, Obama,” said Mr. Simmons during two days of rare interviews at his Dallas home and office. “Obama is the most dangerous American alive…because he would eliminate free enterprise in this country.”

In other news: Today, a state commission gave permission to Waste Control Specialists, a Texas company owned by Simmons, to import and bury radioactive waste from 36 states. 

Facts:

In short, by plying polticians with dollars Simmons engineered himself a monopoly business that privatizes profits and socializes the risk.

You tell me, is this “free enterprise” or corporate socialism?
