In addition to this video are the following quotes from an August 20, 2008 New York Times magazine interview;
“If you talk to Warren, he’ll tell you his preference is not to meddle in the economy at all — let the market work, however way it’s going to work, and then just tax the heck out of people at the end and just redistribute it,” Obama said. “That way you’re not impeding efficiency, and you’re achieving equity on the back end.” He continued by saying that he thought there was some merit in Buffett’s argument. But, he said: “I do think that what the argument may miss is the sense of control that we want individuals to have in determining their own career paths, making their own life choices and so forth. And I also think you want to instill that sense of self-reliance and that what you do will help determine outcomes.”
While the main stream media is is gushing over Obama, wondering if America is finally ready for a black President, many Americans are now wondering if we are blindly about to let our doom in by the front door by electing a Marxist to that office.
"You mentioned Rashid Khalidi, who's a professor at Columbia," Obama said. "I do know him because I taught at the University of Chicago. And he is Palestinian. And I do know him and I have had conversations. He is not one of my advisors; he's not one of my foreign policy people. His kids went to the Lab school where my kids go as well. He is a respected scholar, although he vehemently disagrees with a lot of Israel's policy."
Obama continued, "To pluck out one person who I know and who I've had a conversation with who has very different views than 900 of my friends and then to suggest that somehow that shows that maybe I'm not sufficiently pro-Israel, I think, is a very problematic stand to take," he said. "So we gotta be careful about guilt by association."
Sean Hannity has repeatedly detailed Obama's relationship with Khalidi as exemplified by the video below.
The left wing media has chosen the role of apologists for Obama's radical associations from William Ayers to Khalidi. Now we have learned that the media is in the business of suppressing news on behalf of Barack Obama. The Gateway Pundit has reported that the LA Times is in possession of a video in which Obama praises the anti-Semitic Khalidi and admits to having a close relationship with Khalidi which included frequently dining with Khalidi and his wife in their home.

Taxes are always a redistribution of money. Most of the taxes that are redistributed go back to those who paid them, in roads and airports and hospitals and schools. And taxes are necessary for the common good. And there is nothing wrong with examining what our tax structure is or who should be paying more, who should be paying less. And for us to say that that makes you a socialist, I think is an unfortunate characterization that isn’t accurate.

African Americans need to ask themselves a few questions;this.
-Democrats pushed banks into making more home loans to those with low and moderate
incomes, mostly through Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac. Read this and this. They defended Fannie and Freddy when Republicans started sounding the warning bells in 2004. Watch this and this. Now, those who purchased homes under these programs, many of whom are African Americans, find that their homes are worth less than the principle remaining on their mortgages. Since many of these homeowners got their loans with no money down, and therefore, had no skin in the game, are walking away from these mortgages. With the economy collapsing and it looks as though every American will be paying a huge price for it, of what benefit has any of this been for the black community? Misery may love company, but is this the type of equality that the black community hoped for when they voted for Democrats?
-In America, the land of opportunity, liberal Democrats tell African Americans that their success or failure depends upon who wins elections. That is insulting enough, but the fact of the matter is that Democrats, by positioning themselves as the saviors of the black community, have a vested political interest in maintaining the status quo. As long as black students are under educated, the Democrats have the black vote. As long as black unemployment exceeds the national average, the Democrats have the black vote. As long as crime in America's inner city communities remains high, the Democrats have the black vote. As long as Democrats can convince African Americans that racism is at the heart of all these problems, the Democrats have the black vote. Why would the Democrats, as a party, want any of these things to change?
These are questions which every voter, not just those in the African American community, should seriously be considering.

NBC pulls SNL skit from the NBC/SNL website. The skit lampoons liberal financier George Soros and Marion and Herb Sandler, not to mention the entire Democratic Party's cover up of their part in the economic meltdown. The liberal bias over at NBC is well known, however, it would seem that the reason that NBC pulled the skit is that Herb Sandler is 'hopping mad' about it. No response from NBC as to why it was pulled.
See the original uncut video below. Many thanks to Ms. Underestimated for the .wmv file.
