Hey mguy, I bet you have never seen a Marxist in your life, nor have you the slightest idea what Marxism is. But to your point, I would say Obama's vision (or endgame) would be more something like Germany, Switzerland, Norway, etc, all capitalist economies, albeit with much greater quality than here. Incidentally, they all rank at the top of every index ever devised to measure human flourishing. Their citizens don't see their governments as the enemy, but a just necessary structures in the general interest of the nation. And don't think for a moment they they are not as 'free' as our dear old USA, they are at the top of economic freedom and press freedom as well. And they all have surplus budgets. What's wrong with such societies?
