The claims from the Republicans that Obama's a socialist started when he passed The Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, which calls for the individual mandate. (Similar to what we have here for health insurance in Switzerland, not known for being socialist.) Everyone who cares about the facts knows that the ideas for an individual mandate were first proposed by the conservative think tank The Heritage Foundation and were a Republican staple as proven by Mitt's Romneycare plan which he gave to Massachusetts when he was governor there. Romneycare was okay even with people like Jim Demint, but as soon as Obama adopted it, mistakingly assuming he'd get Republican support for their own plan, Jim Demint and the rest of the Republican Party opposed him and the false claims of Obama having a socialist agenda began to abound.
If he was at all a socialist he'd would have tried to pass a government run universal single payer health care plan.
