Amending the Constitution to force Redistribution of Wealth?
In his own words. On Chicago Public Radio WBEZ FM in 2001, Barack Obama speaks of the "tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change."
He said that it's a tragedy that the constitution wasn't radically reinterpreted to force redistribution of the wealth.
"I am not optimistic about bringing about redistributive change through the courts. The institution just isn't structured that way."
From Atlas Shrugs who comments - So he doesn't think it can be done through the courts but he thinks it can be done legislatively. That is why a Liberal Supermajority is crucial.

UPDATE III: Keeping a running tally of video views before the Obamaniacs get it yanked from YouTube. (Don’t worry though, the PUMAs warned us, and thousands of us have all been downloading copies of the video. Down the memory hole this one will not go.)

and HillBuzz: Obama’s socialist audiotape should pressure the LA Times to release the tape they are holding of Obama at the 2003 Rashid Khalidi event in Chicago
The LA Times is sitting on a story about Obama at a 2003 Chicago event honoring Palestinian Rashid Khalidi, at which Obama was present while rampant anti-Semetic, anti-Israel hate was spewed.
Obama did nothing to stop it — and instead joined in the praise heaped upon Khalidi.
The LA Times shut the story down and refused to release the tape, because it would obviously hurt Obama with Jewish voters and all Americans who understand the importance of our historic and strategic friendship with Israel.
