For at least the fifth time, Ronald Kessler has asserted that "In a Sept. 6, 2001, radio interview, Obama expressed regret that the Supreme Court hadn’t engaged in wealth redistribution." This time was in a July 15 Newsmax column.
It isn't any truer than it was the first four times he asserted it. Obama actually said that because the Supreme Court under Earl Warren did not address "redistributive change," it was evidence that the court was not as far-left as its critics have claimed. And Obama's "regret" was specifically aimed at the civil rights movement for overly relying on the court system to advance its agenda.
This latest assertion comes in a screed claiming that "Obama abhors capitalism. If you doubt that, look at his own words — and the words of his wife."
You only need to look at Kesslers words to know that he abhors Obama -- and, thus, cannot be trusted to write accurately about him.
