If you want, I give my take on each individual concern. But, in short, Obama's "radical" past and his army of "socialists" doesn't look like that to me at all.
Perhaps the evidence doesn't amount to what you think it does?

Nothing about what he said is even remotely radical and certainly not as controversial as it's being treated. He's throwing out a strategy to hold Wall Street/big money people accountable for their risk-taking, middle-class damaging actions. I'm sure Wall Street people are thinking of strategies to get their goals accomplished as well. This is what people in power do - they strategize on how to make big changes in society and sometimes they accomplish their goals. It isn't a conspiracy.
