Did Romney just call Obama a communist?

In a speech today, Mitt Romney said this about President Obama (hat tip: NRO's the Corner):
He seeks to replace our merit-based society with an entitlement society. In an entitlement society, everyone receives the same or similar rewards, regardless of education, effort and willingness to take risk. That which is earned by some is redistributed to the others. And the only people to enjoy truly disproportionate rewards are the people who do the redistributing—the government. …
Isn't that pretty much the definition of communism?
