Redistribute "wealth"?

Via Michelle Malkin, we get this transcribed quote from 2001:
But, the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize 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, at least as its been interpreted and Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can’t do to you. 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, and that hasn’t shifted and one of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was, um, because the civil rights movement became so court focused I think there was a tendency [sic] 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. In some ways we still suffer from that.
I'm not surprised. One of the reasons I'm so unhappy with the thought of obama is his socialist attitude. The other big one lately is the treatment of "Joe the Plumber" but that's a post for another time.

At any rate Fox News did a story on that little foot in mouth moment of obama's this past weekend sometime. Of course the nobama camp jumped to the defensive and called Fox news liers oh and in McCains pocket to boot. Because gosh heaven forbid a news outlet (be in tv, radio, or print) actually report anything that's negative towards the One.

The giggle moment for me came when watching Megyn Kelly and Bill Burton go at it over the issue.
