Bah, I'm sick of hearing this. The Obama administraton is doing nothing close to communism and no more socialism then what was seen in the New Deal. He's been supplying the banks with capital and buying up toxic debt. There has yet to be a goverment take over of the banking system (which is much less socialistic then it sounds, the goverment usually only controls the banks for a few hours to a few days until they are resold to private interests, this is the route that the United States has often advised other countries with banking crisises to take in the past,) and there seems to be few signs that this is in the cards.

While certainly not practicing completely free market policies, which I would be disturbed if he did, Obama is not a communist, or even much of a socialist.
