Cornell West is one of my most respected intellectuals and 'go to guys' on the planet. Whenever he talks I listen. Had you Shan not posted the link I, in all honest,y would not have believed those words.
This is going to make many on the right here very happy. I am not going to do a complete mea culpa regarding my support for BHO. However, I respect Cornell West to the Nth degree. He more than anybody else has made me think about my position regarding BHO. For now, anyway.
The picture West has painted is bleak however we have hope. "a Lincoln-like figure who could revive some democratic spirit and democratic possibility."
Where is this? A reluctant leader who lead the nation through a civil war and set her on the reconstruction path.
Who will be the next Lincoln?
It just might be Dr. Carson.
I hope if not him then someone with his values.
And I don't care what his party affiliation happens to be.
We must change our course soon.
I said it last election period. We need a President that's been a leader in the private sector and not beholden to special interest. Herman Cain was then and Ben carson is now!!!
I do not know this Ben Carson fellow. I did some research and I liked what I read
“The vast majority of people in this country actually have common sense; the problem is they’ve been beaten into submission,” Carson
