Cornel West Calls President Obama Rockefeller Republican In Blackface
Princeton professor Dr. Cornell West blasted President Barack Obama a day after his inauguration. West took issue with President Obama using Martin Luther King's bible to be sworn in as commander and chief and called Obama a "Rockefeller Republican in blackface".
West admitted he was happy that Republican candidate Mitt Romney failed to earn a spot in the White House but suggested Obama has not done enough for the common man commenting:
“Poverty, trade unions being pushed against the wall dealing with stagnating and declining wages when profits are still up and the 1 percent are doing very well. No talk about drones dropping bombs on innocent people. So we end up with such a narrow, truncated political discourse.”
