That was quick Less than an hour ago Drudge posted video of Barack Obama telling an audience in 1998 that he believes in redistribution of wealth. Mitt Romney was just on Your World with Cavuto and hammered the president over this shocking admission. He wants redistribution of wealth. I disagree.
Mitt Romney on Barack Obama:
Frankly we have two very different views about America. The presidents view is one of a larger government. Theres a tape that just came out today where the president is saying he likes redistribution. I disagree. I think a society based upon a government-centered nation where government plays a larger and larger role, redistributes money, thats the wrong course for America. That will not build a strong America or help people out of poverty. I believe the right course for America is one where government steps in to help those who are in need. Were a compassionate people. But then we let people build their own lives We believe in free people and free enterprises.

Thank you. I thought that might be your angle. I hope converting that squishy base is enough to do the job.
I am doubtful of this though.
The necessary thing is conversion of the squishy middle and a few of the squishy left that may still remember a little about what liberty and opportunity are supposed to be all about.
“If it wasn’t made public until 11/2/08”
It was on the Chronicle’s website for all to see for months. It could have made a difference in the coal states.
VIDEO TRANSCRIPTION OF "OBAMA LIKING REDISTRIBUTION":
Let me just close by saying as we think about the policy research uh surrounding the issues that I just named, uh policy research for the working poor properly defined, I think that what we're going to have to do is somehow resucsicate the notion that government action can be effective at all.
There has been a systematic, uh, I don't think it's too strong to call it a propaganda campaign, uh against the possibility of government action and its efficacy. And I think some of it has been deserved. Chicago Housing Authority has not been a model of good policy making. Uh, and neither, necessarily, have been the Chicago public schools.
Uh, what that means then is that as we try to resuscitate this notion that uh we're all in this thing together -- leave nobody behind -- uh we do have to be innovative in thinking how...what are the delivery systems that are actually effective and meet people where they live, uh and my suggestion, I guess, would be that the trick -- and this is one of the few areas where I think there are technical issues that have to be dealt with as opposed to just political issues, I think the trick is figuring out how do we structure government systems that pool resources and, hence, facilitate some redistribution, because i actually believe in redistribution, uh at least at a certain level to make sure that...everybody's got a shot.
That's a really good point. A mortgage, 401k, & 2 car loans isn't "wealth" except in Obama's America, but it's still more than he thinks we deserve.
Here is my list of the most damaging articles and videos about Obama. The Obama Clarifier. http://obamaclarifier.blogspot.com/
Absolutely right. I know too many who are gaming the system when there is nothing wrong with them. I despise them.
I also know many who, through no fault of their own, are not able to find a job and others, a job that pays a sustainable wage.
There are distinctions.
What if the number of those who really know is in the single digits, and they're either extremely loyal to the cause, or have the constant threat of families being killed to stay quiet?
Not giving credit to a liberal for logic, because they don't believe in it, but the best way to keep people from knowing something is to tell noone, or if there are multiple people involved in something, make sure they don't talk.
Has someone been giving Myth Newt lessons?
About freaking time. There are still 47 days yet, maybe he can get it down to one clothespin I’ll have to take into the voting booth.
Well I think most of us recognize that he's pond scum. It's just that the arsenic alternative is so horrible that pond scum is looking less and less unpalatable.
Which doesn't mean we won't be violently ill and throwing it up come next January. It's just that we won't be dead from arsenic poisoning.
No, it was 14 years old and no where near as damaging as Romneys. We have to be real here and do some damage control.
Thanks for transcripting. The most galling bit of Obama’s quote is that he talks like a socialist, but at the very end he tries to mask it with the “everybody should have a shot” line, as if redistribution will create a level playing field. Barry needs to read Animal Farm and understand that when people appoint themselves the arbiters of what is “fair”, they always make things extra “fair” in their own favor.
Why didn’t you find it and tell us?
Well the latest household earnings plunge that happened solely under Obama says it is not everybody having a shot. Instead it is everyone sinking into poverty and misery. Mitt needs ot get that out there again and again.
When Obama say he wants to include YOU.....now YOU exactly what he means.
My thoughts exactly. No gaffe here. Had to be said, and Mitt said it.
I can't do it all. I had given you this task back in 2008; and you missed it.
Well the media is doing their bit to “pooh-pooh” this tape. I just heard the radio Fox News Break that “Romney is trying to make hay out of old comments” and that these comments are from “way back in 1998” and the tone was completely dripping with condescension. I could almost hear the eye-rolling. It made me sick.
Romney is going to have to keep pushing and hitting, and his attack dogs need to start biting a little with their bark. This media is not going to take this “abuse” for their messiah lying down! I expect the Mormon card to come out at the end of October, if things look dicey for the Marxist Muslim.

Heard the same thing. Same reaction.
I’ve noticed that Fox radio is worse than ABC radio news. Can’t wait until Beck’s network is fully functional.
These dopes ignore Obama’s many, more recent comments favoring redistribution, such as his infamous remarks to Joe the Plumber.
The 2012 Smackdown begins - - - -FINALLY!
Here’s my 2 cents: Republicans and Democrats have been guilty of buying votes by promising FREE STUFF to potential voters according to the dictate of Karl Marx: From each according to his ability, to each according to his need. This has led to a Polarized America. This polarization has increased as the number of those with ability has decreased and the number of those with needs has increased.
I call it the Federal Welfare Entitlement Plantation, with its Capitol located on the banks of the DeNile River, locally called the Potomac River.
