Comrade Obama Contradicts Himself On Capitalism

In his second debate with Mitt Romney, Barack Obama told plenty of whoppers, and it was hard to keep up with the sheer volume of lies that crossed his lips.  Pundits and fact-checkers have been poring over them throughout the week.
One statement that Obama made really stuck out though.  It was Obama's "I was against Capitalism before I was for it" moment.
In his closing statement (at the 1:35:10 mark), Obama said the following:

"I believe the free enterprise system is the greatest engine of prosperity the world has ever known."

He is absolutely correct in this statement.  The problem is that this is not what he believes.  He is lying to the American people when he says it.  He believes that capitalism is the root cause of unfairness in the world. How do I know this?  Because he has told us numerous times in the past, all the way back to 2008.  He doesn't believe in capitalism, because he doesn't believe it is fair.  He said that capitalism "doesn't work", and "it has never worked" (video below). He has also stated that he wants to raise capital gains taxes on investors, not because it raises more money (it doesn't), but "for purposes of 'fairness'".
Spoken like a true Marxist!



Obama: Capitalism "doesn't work", "It has never worked".
