Wow - what a long-winded rant, al hinged on a single lie -- that Obama was advocating. He wasn't. He's a constitutional expert commenting on the civil rights movement as it intersected with the Supreme Court, Mike -- there's no advocacy -- at least not in that qoute you provided.

"...the Supreme Court never entered into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society. And uh, to that extent, as radical as I think people tried to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical."

That's a single analysis. It establishes his opinion that the Warren Court was as radical as it was painted by critics.

"And that hasn’t shifted, and one of the, I think, the tragedies of the civil-rights movement was because the civil-rights movement became so court-focused, uh, I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change. And in some ways we still suffer from that."

There's no advocacy in that statement. Obama suggests that focusing on the Supreme Court and losing track of the grassroots aspect was a mistake.

Your rabid anti-abortion position, and the apparent hatred of liberals that your hatred sparks inside of you, is causing you to see things through a distorted perspective, Mike.

I understand and appreciate passionate politics, but I this rant is just silly. Anyone can see from the quotes you provided that Obama isn't advocating anything, but is -- as a former grassroots organizer-turned constitutional law professor can be expected to do -- merely commenting on the civil rights focus on the Supreme Court and the consequences of the movement choosing that focus over grassroots efforts.

ODS is strong on the blog. I hope you don't hurt yourself or a nearby abortion clinic doctor after Obama wins next Tuesday....
