Critiquing Obama’s track record: Cornel West & Paul Street

August 9, 2012

This video is re-posted from Al Jazeera.

Al Jazeera TV recently invited radical scholar’s Paul Street and Cornel West to provide an honest critique of the Obama administration.

Cornel West was a supporter when Barack Obama ran for President in 2008, but now feels that Obama’s policies have been brutal for many Americans. His most recent book, co-authored with Tavis Smiley is The Rich And The Rest Of Us: A Poverty Manifesto.

Paul Street is the author of numerous books, two of which are about Barack Obama. The first one, written during the 2008 Election, is entitled Barack Obama and the Future of American Politics, and the most recent book is entitled, The Empire’s New Clothes: Barack Obama in the Real World of Power.
