Click the title of this post to hear a 2001 recording of Barack Obama musing that the Warren Supreme Court was not really very radical, because -- unfortunately in his eyes -- it didn't address the need for the redistribution of wealth.
If there was any doubt at all about Barack Obama's desire to radically make over our nation as a Socialist country, and his willingness to use the courts to do it, that doubt is now gone.
In the tape Obama talks about the Court not breaking free "of the constraints placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution" and about his desire to bring about "major redistributive change" -- which he's "not optimistic" will be brought about via the courts. (Hmmm, so maybe he thinks that can be brought about via the Presidency with a liberal Congress?)
The transcript is here.
He says that one of the "tragedies" of the civil rights movement is that it didn't bring about "redistributed change."
This is terribly scary stuff considering this is the man who wants to be elected to the office which is charged with preserving, protecting, and defending the Constitution.
Coming on the heels of his talk with Joe the Plumber, I would think that this even more radical confirmation of Obama's plans for our nation will have an impact on voters.
The question is, with a week to go before the election, will enough Americans be paying attention and understand the threat this man poses to our nation?
Monday Update: If one reads Obama's words closely, there's even more cause for concern. More analysis from National Review Online and Ed Morrissey.
And once again, this tape was dug up by a single citizen, rather than reporters, who are preoccupied with weighty matters such as who's paying for Governor Palin's wardrobe.
Senator Obama's campaign, as they do whenever they don't like questions raised about the candidate, has dismissed the tape as "just another distraction." That phrase is pretty worn out by now.
