Henry Barbour, the nephew of the former governor of Mississippi and an author of the RNC's plan to reboot the party and broaden its appeal, thinks President Obama is a "socialist."
"We all want to make America strong economically and militarily and every other way but you can't do that if you're not in office," he told The Hill. "We've got a socialist in office right now — how's that working for us?"
When pressed on his choice of words, Barbour said: "I don't care. I mean, look, I think he's a socialist. I'm not saying he doesn't love our country," he said. "No, I don't care."
