Why Obama liberalism is worse than socialism

In a post below I made the following comments which deserve a post of their own:

Many on the right have been suggesting that Obama's policies are socialist. They are not. They are worse than socialism. Socialism means the states owns and takes responsibility for the production of goods and services and subsidizes its operations with extremely high taxes. Experience has demonstrated that this model is inefficient and reduces most people's standard of living.

What liberalism does is allow the owners to stay in place, but it tells them how to run their business. It is the approach of the fascist states. Obama is big on telling energy companies and auto companies what they can and cannot produce and in diverting funds from them to companies that would otherwise be unprofitable.

But in doing so he ignores the fundamental failure of a command economy. No one, not even Obama , is smart enough to know how many eggs and slices of bacon are needed in New York city everyday. Anyone who tried would either get too many or too few in place on a daily basis.

With socialism and communism the state would at least have to bear the consequences of the screw ups they make. The Obama system would make the businesses and their shareholders Obama is bossing bear the consequences of his screw ups.
When Hugo Chavez screws up his state owned oil company he has to bear the consequences with reduced revenues and production. When Obama screws up domestic energy companies the owner and shareholders bear the consequences.

This is an argument that needs to be made now in opposing the Obama control freak agenda.
