Disregard most of the comments in reaction to this clip. I doubt that many of the posters have read Dr. West or know much of his work.
Suffice to say that Cornel West is worth listening to…and as usual, I find myself agreeing with him. He articulates well what many of us only think poorly or occasionally mumble. Don’t get me wrong, I will vote again for Obama. But I hope and pray that the next national election brings a correctional pendulum swing in the House to counter the subsequent class war waged by the right and inspire in our President a renewed sense of courage. If at long last legislators continue to ignore the voice of the people and heed the right which claims to speak for us, then Obama’s veto pen must do the talking.
