From PolitiFact Florida: Bloggers say U.S. Reps. Corrine Brown, Alcee Hastings and Frederica Wilson are Socialists

Pants on Fire!Word in the blogosphere is that scores of members of Congress are actually unabashed 'S' words.

That'd be Socialists.

Several bloggers have listed members of Congress by name under headlines like "Why do Americans Keep Electing These Socialist Politicians to Congress??" and "Socialist Party of America Releases The Names of 70 Democrat Members of Congress Who Are Members Of Their Congress."

The list -- actually a roster of Congressional Progressive Caucus members (mostly) from Wikipedia -- includes Florida Democrats Corrine Brown, Alcee Hastings and Frederica Wilson.

Huh? See how the bloggers' claim stacked up on the Truth-O-Meter. Hint: Lots of flames.

What are Progressives if not socialsits/Communists

Name a capitalist idea sponsored by anyone in the Progressive caucus......

Their only agenda is to take from da man (whitey) and exercise social justice.....

And I rate PolitFact as Pants on Fire! You are just another Obama media cheerleader disguised as Fairness. You don't need to be formally registered or call yourself a Socialist to be one. These elected Representatives are indeed not just socialists, but Marxists to the core, just like Obama. You cannot continue to fool the American people. They are known by their deeds-----redistribution of wealth is socialism! I came years ago from a communist country and I sure know socialists/communists/progressives when I see one! These individuals want to total control and are against capitalism and our Judeo/Christian values. Stop trying to manipulate the minds of the American people.

Untrustworthy Source

And why does the Herald constantly cite "bloggers" as a source for anything?

To Charity (odd name for someone so hard line about others' opinions).

Aren't you glad you now live in a country that allows you to publicly lie about others, even the President, without throwing you in prison for an indefinite period of time, with a little torture thrown in for good measure?

Sounds like you prefer the kind of response your former country has to differering opinions more than American tolerance and freedom of expression. You know, the kind of response that allows the accuser to irresponsibly brand a person with whatever label they think is derogatory with no proof required. You missed the McCarty years - it is thankfully a different era now.
