It has been interesting, but relatively brief (IMO, because the argument/evidence supporting the assertion overwhelms the any anemic argument refuting it). I, along w/ those such as esteemed Dr. Alan Keyes, charge that Mr. Obama's affinities, his sympathies & his behavior indicate that he is, indeed, communist in his heart of hearts.
So friends, I ask this question: What do you think Mr. Obama's heart & soul response would be (i.e., not what he'd actually say) if someone said to him, "Sir, it's clear you're a Communist."
Would Mr. O think,
"Yes, I'm so glad someone finally noticed!"
"Oh, no! You've got me all wrong! I'll do all in my power to prove I'm not!"
Our friend, Jim says (re: Alan Keyes, 2 posts ago),
"Alan Keyes claiming Obama is a socialist/communist does not make it so. You have no evidence that 'he wants United States of America to become socialist/communist'. Only the rantings of people who hate him."
Only those who hate him? Really Jim? Yes. And we're all racists who just want the man to fail because he's black, right? (So says Ms. Diane Watson, Congresswoman from Los Angeles. )
WRONG! I said to my friend Jim:
"Obama is a socialist...who wants our government to become Communist. He is thus, not because Alan Keyes said so, but because he said so himself, & b/c of the things he has promoted, orchestrated & 'accomplished' in less than 9 months.
I, in fact, believe that Dr. Keyes was too magnanimous in stating simply that Obama is only communist. From what I see, Mr. Obama appears to have fascist desires & drives."
Folks. Do we even know what Communism is? How it puts ultimate power in the hands of the State? How it destroys human ingenuity, drive toward a better life???
Oxford Amer. Dictionary-- Communism: 1) a social system in which property is owned by the community [i.e., the STATE] & each member works for the common benefit. 2) a political doctrine seeking to overthrow capitalism...
Honestly, all I needed to hear was, "I think when you spread the wealth around, everybody's better off..." Wrote a post about it; & it has been downhill ever since.
My new friend, Buck summarizes the revelation of Mr. O's proclivities nicely. Allow me to share:

Jim, you are right that some of us fear what Obama & the Democratic party are doing to America. But you are dead wrong in your assertions that (1) we are ignorant of & mistrust America's great traditions and institutions [democracy] & (2) that there is no evidence that Obama wants the country to be socialist/communist.
It is exactly our understanding of the great history of America that allows us to realize that when the President of the United States (one whose mentor in his youth was a hard line Communist, has been drawn to & closely associated with radical, even terroristic individuals his entire life, who openly supports Socialist policies such as a single payer health care system & a civilian defense force stronger than the military, & who doesn't object to outlandish things like slavery reparations & massive income redistribution),
...when this man appoints cabinet members, czars, & policy consultants who are also avowed communists/radicals (Van Jones, Mark Loyd, Susstein, E. Emmanuel, Holdren, etc.) who openly espouse views such as fundamental opposition of a privately owned media, forced sterilization, admiration of dictators such as Chavez, & numerous other anti-Capitalist & revolutionary Marxist policies - That is what we are righteously afraid of.
These people actually call themselves "community organizers within the federal context". That is not what America is all about. Read the Constitution. Our government should merely be representative of what the people want & believe. It should not be a conduit for one man, even if he's the President, to appoint radicals who use their power & position to agitate & organize people for the furtherance of their own personal beliefs (and get paid my tax dollars to do so).
But it appears to me that you are more angry at our opposition than we are afraid of your man in the White House. Perhaps it is because you subconsciously realize that you & most of the Democratic party have been duped by the Communists. You finally win an election (how could you lose? when the outgoing guy was a disaster, the economy is in shambles, & you have the uber-candidate: a well-spoken, charismatic, half black man that 30% of the electorate has been waiting their whole lives just to cast their vote for along racial lines?) Too bad he just happens to be a Communist.
If he's not, he needs to prove it by reeling in the other Commies in the party that are trying to use this alignment of the stars (control of both chambers and the white house) to push their anti-American agenda. And if he is, well we'll keep trying to stop him until he proves that he's not ---because the evidence says that he is.
But hey, don't take it from me, Buck or even Dr. Alan Keyes.
Do some research. Watch the man. Study not only his words, but the inferences. Read, learn, investigate this President. It hasn't been done so far, but somebody should do it.
It may as well be you.
