President Obama on Tuesday dismissed critics who call him a "socialist," suggesting they meet some real socialists if they think he's one.

"People call me a socialist sometimes," he said at the Wall Street Journal CEO Summit, addressing 100 top business leaders.

"But, no, you gotta meet real socialists. You'll have a sense of what a socialist is," he said to laughter from the crowd.
