Thanks r wingers, you're adding more to the discussion than I imagined at first glance.

So, after parsing through Meade & Cornbread's replies (no Ned? Come on!), here is how I see the thread's initial question has been answered:
1. It's clearly no more than a petty taunt.
2. The Republican hivemind has used an (incomplete) bit of history to rationalize this taunt as Democrats being pro-slavery. This rationalization is, of course, absurd.
3. When faced with the notion that "democrat party" is just a petty taunt, Meade and (in particular) Cornbread respond with petty taunts.
4. Interesting to note: The entire question at hand rests on this taunt not actually being offensive in any way. Not only did I initially state that, but it has been reiterated a few times throughout the thread. To which Meade and CB respond with "why are all of you so offended? LOL!"

Aside to CB: All the jingoism is colorful, but I've noticed several places on the forum (and someone else pointed it out upthread), but you don't know what the word avowed means, do you?

My opinion is that he does indeed know what it means. The tactic fits right in with the conservative playbook; repeat it often enough and a few people, the ones who want to believe it, start to believe it. They can't remember where it was they saw it but they did read somewhere that Obama is an avowed socialist. Must be something to it if I remember reading it several times.

It's a variation on the "throw more mud and see what sticks" maneuver. It doesn't have to be true. It just has to do a little bit of damage, even if it's just noise to obscure the real problems.

Wow, nice one Cornholio! I may have to go back to actually reading your posts completely if you're going to throw out zany ignorant crap like this. Margaret Sanger = Rachel Carson in your twisted world, huh? Are you having any trouble distinguishing between other notable demons?

I stand in awe of your all-consuming knowledge. BTW-- is your library card up to date or are libraries just too much of an avowed socialist construct for a being of your ilk?
