I doubt Cornel West and I would agree on much of anything, but I agree with the last line of this quote. Not sure he views it as an economic depression, but the wake that is going to be left by the most incompetent man to ever hold the office will be felt for generations to come.
- “The thing is, [Obama] posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit. We ended up with a Wall Street presidency, a drone presidency, a national security presidency. The torturers go free. The Wall Street executives go free… we ended up with a brown-faced Clinton. Another opportunist. Another neoliberal opportunist… So you got low-quality black leadership. Al Sharpton is who? He’s a cheerleader for Obama… Eric Holder won’t touch the Wall Street executives; they’re his friends… I think a post-Obama America is an America in post-traumatic depression.” Cornel West professor Union Theological Seminary
