Fox News has a (poor) transcript of the Barack Obama audio from WBEZ's discussion on the courts and civil rights. I've been hunting for one ever since the story hit regarding Obama's statements about wealth redistribution.
A number of commentators stated that Obama advocated the courts for the role of getting the government into the role of wealth redistribution. None of the individual snippets appeared to support that interpretation, and it doesn't come through with more context, either.
Some commentators from the left have tried to suggest that Obama neither advocates the courts for the role of redistributing wealth nor expresses the opinion that redistributing wealth is called for in the first place. That view, I think, doesn't fly.
It is certainly true, however, that Obama was speaking in a limited context and as such the radio material does a poor job of showing him as a full-fledged Marxist. On the other hand, the audio clips have been fair in pointing out a socialist streak in Sen. Obama's thinking. Otherwise, there simply isn't any good reason for Obama to detect a tragedy in the history of the civil rights movement in that it failed to press its ends through legislation.
