Obama the Leveler

Charles Krauthammer seems to have intended this as a criticism:
Fundamentally, Obama is a leveler. The community organizer seeks, above all, to reverse the growing inequality that he dates and attributes to ruthless Reaganism. Now, however, clothed in the immense powers of the presidency, he can actually engage in unadorned redistributionism. As in Tuesday night’s $620 billion wealth transfer.
But I think it's terrific. At least somebody is trying to do something about inequality.
