Video message to President Obama


From Truthdig in the USA:

Cornel West Calls Out Barack Obama

In this video message to the president, the celebrated professor asks, “How deep is your love for poor and working people?” and urges, “Don’t simply be the friendly face of the American empire.”

Obama Liquidates Himself, by Paul Krugman: here. See also here.

Candidate Obama criticized McCain’s spending freeze idea as ‘hatchet’: here.

Cut Weapons, Not Education: here.

Obama’s three-year freeze on a most discretionary spending will make it impossible for him to do much of anything for the middle class that’s important. Chalk up another win for Wall Street, another loss for Main: here.

  1. Dear Friends, Colleagues and Supporters,

    President Obama will give his first State of the Union address on Wednesday night at 9 p.m. Eastern / 6 p.m. Pacific.

    Why watch the speech alone on TV when you can hang out with more than 11,000 people like you who want the Afghanistan war to end? Join the other fans of Rethink Afghanistan and watch the speech on our Facebook fan page.

    Rethink Afghanistan’s fan page will have a live stream of a part of Rethink Afghanistan (The Cost of War) prior to the speech at 8:30 p.m., followed by a live stream of the State of the Union address. Brave New Foundation’s Robert Greenwald and I will be there by video and Facebook chat for the conversation. After the speech, our whole mob will head over to the White House’s Facebook page to share our thoughts on his Afghanistan comments.

    Please join us for the conversation and the company as our community watches the State of the Union on Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. Eastern / 5:30 p.m. Pacific on our Facebook page. See you there.

    Sincerely,

    Derrick Crowe
    Political Associate

    P.S. Make sure you’re a fan of Rethink Afghanistan on Facebook so you can participate.
