Parts of this sort of topic were being discussed in the election thread. Essentially West states that Obama is a republican. Nothing new.
The way Cornel West phrased it might be a bit different than others though :
| So it’s very sad. I mean, I’m glad there was not a right-wing takeover, but we end up with a Republican, a Rockefeller Republican in blackface, with Barack Obama, so that our struggle with regard to poverty intensifies.|
Another statement attributed to West in the program (that West doesn't deny)
| President Obama said to Harry Belafonte, according to Harry, "Why don’t you and Cornel West cut me some slack?" And Cornel—and Harry Belafonte responded, "What makes you think we’re not?"|

They weigh in on the media, fox news, msnbc, politics in general, etc. Especially focused on poverty issues. It's pretty interesting. Just curious as to what some other posters on the site think of this. Not really curious about what others think, but yeah. (Please, no Illuminati talk).
