Rep. Spencer Bachus, the top Republican on the Financial Services Committee, told a hometown crowd in Alabama today he believes there are several socialists in the House.
Actually, he says there are exactly 17 socialists in the House of Representatives. according to the Birmingham News:
But he said he is worried that he is being steered too far by the Congress: "Some of the men and women I work with in Congress are socialists."
Asked to clarify his comments after the breakfast speech at the Trussville Civic Center, Bachus said 17 members of the U.S. House are socialists.
Searching the POLITICO style book and the official U.S. House listings, we don't see a category for socialists -- just a lot of Ds and Rs next to lawmaker names. And Bachus didn't name names of the socialist 17.
"I have here in my hand a list of 205—a list of names that were made known to the Secretary of State as being members of the Communist Party and who nevertheless are still working and shaping policy in the State Department."
history is so cyclical it's amazing.

They do need a bogyman don't they, I think they need one to rally around. Without a bogyman their lost. Up until the late Eighties was Communism, In the Ninties it was criminals and welfare mothers.
After 2000 it became terrorists, now were back to the old mantra about socialists/communists. I never imagined i'd ever see this day again. But when you ain't got nothing, you ain't got nothing to lose by making something up. Repeat it enough and you get some people to believe it.
