So it'd be better to lose come Nov. ??? Brilliant.

"adopt a principled platform that mainly cuts entitlements and other federal spending. They [Republicans] should do that whether or not it is a winning formula for 2010. If they win on that platform, they have a mandate to cut which will head off the disaster. If, as I expect, the public is not ready for that, let the Democrats keep control of the Congress. Federal spending is a runaway train. Let it fly the Democrat flag as it runs off a cliff if the American people will not support fiscally responsible Republican Party."
Simply winning isn't enough. Being the other brand only gets you so far.

Also, I think Obama's economic views, although heavily influenced by socialism, differ from it in important ways. Under socialism, the government actually *runs* factories, oil drilling platforms, etc, and hence can be held accountable for their performance. Accountability is something that is utterly alien to this man: he would much rather have authority to badger and complain but have someone else actually be responsible. Really closer to economic fascism or "corporatism" than to socialism per se.
