    The plight of black Americans has deteriorated under Obamanomics and continues to feel the effects of the misguided Great Society programs which destroyed family creation.

    The current situation has caused Cornel West to lose his enthusiasm for The One.

    Some see a bitter irony in soaring black unemployment and the decline of the black middle class on the watch of the first black president.

    "I thought Barack Obama could have provided some way out. But he lacks backbone," Princeton professor Cornel West told truthdig.com recently.

    He said Obama had sold out the poor and become "a black mascot of Wall Street oligarchs and a black puppet of corporate plutocrats ... I don't think in good conscience I could tell anybody to vote for Obama."...

    Yeah because so many on the left will vote for a republican over Obama.

    Not.

    Obama with all his faults is still better than any republican in the race.

    well... seems pretty intentional when the rightwingnuts cut jobs and won't raise revenue. but why care about the country when you can advance a wingnut agenda.

    Where the hell is Cornell West coming from when he says Obama is "a black puppet of corporate plutocrats"? Is this some sort of a sick political trick or has professor West been in a coma for the last two years? Obama has shown himself to be extremely antagonistic towards capitalism. He hired a (Black) communist who once led an arson and looting rampage to be on his green jobs board. He refered to the US Chamber of Commerce as a sinister political tool of the GOP". Did West expect total conversion to Stalinism overnight once Obama was elected? These radical leftie anti-capitalist professors send a chill up my spine. It shows what a Princeton education will get you these days.

    Obama is pathetically weak on leadership. Even his 95% block of black voters are losing their enthusiasm for him because quite frankly, he stinks at his job.

    What did you people that voted for him expect? He has no experience running anything..... "on the job training" has it's limits.


    That being said, "Cornell West" is kind of a loon....
