An Obama video where the Senator talks about his desire to use government to "redistribute the wealth" has rocketed to the top of YouTube with over 1 million views since yesterday. It was linked to by The Drudge Report early this morning.

This video comes on the heels of a video interview that outraged the Obama campaign when Joe Biden was asked if Obamba was a Marxist because of his view that government should spread the wealth of its citizens. This video now has over 1.5 million views on YouTube.

The power of YouTube and the Internet is in full swing during this election for sure.

    The actual radio interview has been edited. While I have not heard the original, listenters can hear at least two edit points in this recording. Also, the text captions (applied by file-creator, not by WBEZ) do not accurately reflect what Obama was saying.

    At no point does Obama say government should actively redistribute wealth. What he does say is that much of the civil rights movement put its energies into legal battles and neglected grassroots economic development. In this instance, think of your local chamber of commerce as a "coalition of power".

    Take it from someone who lives in a partially socialized nation-state (Canada), Obama is no where near Marxism or socialism.

    If anything, the pattern of disinformation and outright lies coming from the McCain camp is closer to the behaviour we witnessed from repressive Soviet and communist regimes.

    The smearily edited radio spot ends with a video of "Joe the Plumber"!  LMAO!  At least the commies were good at it. The Republican effort is sort of embarrassing eh?

      What fascinates me is the amount of YouTube views in such a short period of time.

      I am not sure who made the video but from what I heard he used the word “redistributive” a lot. I understand it is a political video, but it’s not like the mainstream press is challenging his “spreading the wealth” views. So possibly, YouTube and the alternative conservative media is the only way Obama’s views are challenged. Just my opinion :)

    Obama HAS made it clear that he is about redistributing opportunity, not cash money.
