I was deeply troubled to read the story “State rep. calls Obama socialist.” It appears he has gotten all worked up over one of the many e-mails that is sent out to people by certain Republicans that try to cause fear-mongering among the general public.

If state Rep. Richard Floyd, R-Chattanooga, had taken the time to check out his false e-mail with someone like Snopes.com, he would have learned that someone had sent him an outdated and fictional e-mail.

Check out the comments on the OP's article. Some dude flipping out that it's not the mis-information in the e-mail that's the problem. It's that Obama is a Socialist and not enough people will shout it from the rooftops. He even puts in a dig a the scientific theory of evolution.
