Robin Leach: Obama Leading US Toward Socialism

Wednesday, 16 Oct 2013 07:38 PM

By Greg Richter

Robin  Leach came to the United States in the 1960s because he didn’t like the direction England, his home country, was headed. Now he fears the United States is headed in the same direction.

"It's horrifying what this man has led America into," Leach said of President Barack Obama in an interview with "Your World"  fill-in host Stuart Varney on Fox News Channel Wednesday. "He's taken this country down the road of socialism, which is a cushy, comfortable word for communism.

"It's exactly the same reason you, I left England in the '60s before Maggie Thatcher came in and crushed the unions, which were destroying Britain,"  the former TV host told Varney, who also is British.

It's not the first time Leach has called Obama a Socialist. He made a similar case to Cavuto last year.

America needs the kind of leadership former Prime Minister Thatcher gave Great Britain, Leach said Wednesday. But he doesn't see anyone in the offing who can fill her shoes.

"That's the tragedy. Because look at the clowns in Washington, D.C., on both sides of the aisle," Leach said.

Like a flock of sheep, America needs "a very strong shepherd," he said. "Pray that somebody comes along to reverse all of this nonsense in the next set of elections."

Rand Paul, he said, is not strong enough. He'd like to see someone with more charisma.

Leach gained fame in the 1980s for his TV show "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous." But he isn't hopeful that the United States will return to the level of prosperity it saw in the Reagan years.

"It's getting dangerously close to the point where it can't be reversed," he said.
