What's really troubling is that you would speak on Obama's economic policy before taking the time to familiarize yourself with it. He doesn't espouse redistribution of wealth. He's about jumpstarting the economy, providing tax relief to the middle class, trade, job creation, supporting small business, protecting home ownership, cracking down on mortgage fraud and predatory credit card practices, encouraging work/family balance.
Regarding Geroge Obama, Barack Obama's brother, he doesn't want or need his brother's help. In his own words he says:
"I was brought up well, I live well even now. The magazines exaggerated everything. I'm Kenyan so I'd really rather live in Kenya."
The CNN reporter goes on to say that George Obama supports his brother and will be routing for him in the election.
