Video | Leftist Cornel West: Obama a 'Rockefeller Republican In Blackface'

On the November 9 edition of the leftist program Democracy Now, socialist professor Cornel West denounced President Obama from the Left, saying he's not liberal enough for his tastes.

The Harvard professor said that his struggle for left-wing economic policies "intensifies" with Obama's reelection since the president is little more than a "Rockefeller Republican in blackface." In fact, West added, from his perspective, the late President Nixon was better on health care, as he was "to the left" of Obama on the issue. Our friend Bob Parks of our sister site MRCTV.org has the video, which I've embedded below the page break:
