At Long Last, Obama Defines Change

Barack Obama's campaign has been criticized for lack of substance and resorting to the use of buzzwords like "hope" and "change". His challengers have tried to get him to define these terms, but have been unable to do so, that is until today.

Barack Obama has finally defined the change he is working for as "redistributive change."

In an interview from 2001, Obama said about the Warren Court, "it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution."

Forget "spread the wealth," Barack Obama is openly advocating fundamental changes to the U.S. Constitution that would bring about a true redistribution of wealth. He went on to say about the Constitution, "[it] says what the Federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf."

He goes on to give us a little insight into why he supports the organizations that have been tied to the subprime mortgage crisis and are suspected of voter fraud, like ACORN, "I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change."

At a campaign event this morning Barack Obama said, "change is coming!" If the current polls hold out and the American people don't wake up, he may just be right.
