(Newser) – The right thinks it's found a new killer soundbite to drive home how socialist Barack Obama is. Stumping for financial reform in Quincy, Illinois, Obama said, “We're not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that's fairly earned. I do think at a certain point you've made enough money, but you know, part of the American way is, you can just keep on making it if you're providing a good product.”

Fox News is already doing its victory lap. “He's outed himself,” Frank Luntz declares, claiming the statement reveals that financial services reform “is about punishing everyday workers.” Mediaite likens the quote to Obama's passing comment about “redistributing the wealth” to Joe the Plumber, and expects to see it re-aired throughout the year.

At some point you've governed enough.

This is socialism/communism. In those governments they take your wealth and distribute it to others. It is the model that liberals and progressives want. They don't realize that this form of government ends up in waste with no economic prosperity. This is not a guess, it's a fact. Just look around the world.

Only the right wing lunatics will have a problem with what the president said... those monkeys who swing from the trees squealing "eek, eek, eek" and fling their feces at anybody who walks by that even looks like a liberal... they are the ones who will mount the feeble attempt to turn this into something evil... after all... Obama has always been their biggest target.
