“Obama lacks backbone”: Cornell West

Cornell West is a prominent black moral philosopher who supported Barack Obama, worked hard for his election to the Presidency, and got treated like fingernail dirt by President Obama. He’s a little miffed.

I said, ‘Oh, my God, I have really been misled at a very deep level.’

“I thought Barack Obama could have provided some way out. But he lacks backbone.”

Good article by Chris Hedges. Well worth reading.

    • It ain’t so.

      Aw, hell, I can’t lie to you. It’s so, it’s so. Obama ain’t got no deep.
