Spreading the wealth around = reparations for slavery?
Proving that his rope line response to Joe the Plumber wasn't merely a throw-away comment, this interview from 2001 reveals Barack Obama discussing not whether it's right to redistribute wealth as a means of reparation for past wrongs, but the best way to go about it. He also describes the Supreme Court as "restrained" by the founding fathers and the constitution. If that doesn't scare the crap out of you, I don't know what will. At least now we know what a "community organizer" does.
With his assertion that the legislative process is the right way to get it done, does anyone doubt that a President Obama with a supermajority Democratic Congress won't do it?
We also know now what "hope and change" mean. If this guy gets elected, you hope you'll have enough change to ride the bus.
