A Marxist tidal wave?

Anyone at the "page" willing and capable of debunking the article cited below such that a simple mind can understand? Some alarming flags have been raised/created by having read same? Hopefully someone can address the article with facts to refute it quickly. Would appreciate an article soon on the "page" since it would be very timely considering the "Bail Out Legislation" being penned as of this date."

The American Thinker story is here.

It concludes:
Barack Obama ... no matter how he describes himself, has been a radical activist for most of his political career.That activism has been in support of organizations and initiatives that at their heart seek to tear the pillars of this nation asunder in order to replace them with their demented socialist vision. Their influence has spread so far and so wide that despite their blatant culpability in the current financial crisis, they are able to manipulate Capital Hill politicians to cut them into $140 billion of the bailout pie!
God grant those few responsible yet remaining in Washington, DC the strength to prevent this massive fraud from occurring. God grant them the courage to stand up in the face of this Marxist tidal wave.

Where to start in the face of a "Marxist tidal wave?"

Having played so many unsuccessful cards against the Obama candidacy, his opponents are getting nervous. The usual hot-buttons have been hit - faith, patriotism, race, soft on war and crime. None have worked as well as in previous election cycles. Obama also bested a formidable political machine during the D primaries; it too tried a few of these tactics. It seems many Americans are well past guilt-by-association ploys, red-baiting and the like.

Still, points to the American Thinker for gamely pushing on. I'm sure if the author's side loses in November this sort of hit job will become commonplace. Recall that 1992's election produced the "Arkansas Project," where a millionaire sunk millions into the smearing for a Democratic president.
