From page 301 of David Remnick's book on Number 44:

Obama “was a cautious player, folding hand after hand, waiting for his moment to bluff or go big on a good hand … Obama’s caution, hidden behind a cloud of cigarette smoke, could be maddening. One Republican, Bill Brady, of Bloomington, told Obama, ‘You’re a socialist with everybody’s money but your own."
