In 2001 Obama sat down for a radio interview with the Chicago station of National
Palestinian Public Radio. At that time he was probably not contemplating a run for the presidency, at least not in the near term. Leftist politicians only speak the truth by accident, or intentionally when they think they are talking to a sympathetic audience and that their statements won’t get wide distribution.
Obama spoke the truth in this interview. This is “Obama Raw” on the Constitution, redistribution of wealth, and economic justice. The Obama vision takes John F. Kennedy’s inaugural address statement of January 20, 1961 and turns it on its head: “Ask not what you can do for your country, but what your country must do for you.”
