    "The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of basic issues of political and economic justice in this society, and to that extent as radical as people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn't that radical," Obama said in the interview, a recording of which surfaced on the Internet over the weekend.

    This reveals a couple things about the leftist mind. First, it's as if they think wealth is something that just exists, as if it magically appeared one day, and that if some have more than others, it is the state's role to steal it from some and give it to others. Secondly, obama's complaint that the USSC didn't do this reveals the essentially anti-democratic nature of the leftist mind: important decisions should be made by a few "wise" (liberal) men, and forced on everyone else.
