The Communist Party USA isn‚Äôt always happy with the Democrats, but in the 2012 election, its chairman says, the best bet for advancing the Party‚Äôs goals is to back Barack Obama.
In a report called ‚ÄúDefeating the Rightwing on the Road to Socialism‚ÄĚ delivered to the CPUSA annual conference, Party Chairman Sam Webb moved to squash sentiments that disgruntled communists should jump off the Democrat ship and back a third-party candidate for president.
