One of Obama's supporters in the beginning Princeton professor, Dr. Cornell West has changed his mind. He is now saying after looking at what has happened so far in Obama's presidency, that Obama is a mascot for wall street and is a puppet to the corporations.

I have always liked Dr. West's views on politics and this country, and could not agree with him more in this instance. I definitely feel that Obama is being controlled like a puppet/mascot. Kind of like every other president there has been, in my opinion.

It seems like everyone is turning on Obama and it looks like he would have a difficult time to win a re-election. Though he will win, because those in control want him to be the puppet a little while longer. Four more years of Obama is on the way, sorry folks.

Thoughts?

He just had to say "black" puppet, right? He couldn't just say "puppet"?
Oh, I guess it's okay since he himself is black. >/sarcasm<

It's funny that black Americans would be all disappointed. You're talking about an Ivy League elitist! The color of his skin doesn't matter! He thinks most of Americans are ignorant peasants and not worth his worry.

If he cared what any of US thought, he wouldn't continue to pursue crazy agendas that having nothing whatsoever to do with what the country cares about! DUH.

It is a black man speaking, and yes, he did say it. I watched the video. OP has quoted the CNN headline.

Hahaha


I do believe he said it though because he sees it as the white man using the black man to get what he wants. In the end to me all the presidents have been puppets. Perhaps though to Dr. Cornell West, he has only seen it this one time. Who knows though.

Exactly you are right on point!! Just because the color of his skin is one color and not the other, does not mean anything about the man. He was bred into the life he is in and is where he is today, because he was needed to be there at this time.

Who knows? Perhaps Obama does care (long shot, but possible). No matter what he can not do anything about it as those who control him tell him what to do.

Definitely not a racist spin from me.

Took the headline from CNN.

Ivy league my butt! I totally agree that he is a puppet though. And unfortunately, you are right...Obama will win the election despite not being voted in. The same mistake that was made during the Bush election will not be repeated. There won't be any re-count after the fact, as they will make sure to fabricate the results much faster. I wouldn't have believed that was possible some time ago, that politicians would stoop that low, but then I realized the truth after I started simply paying attention, and figuring out what is real and what is propaganda.

He's black alright, although I do see him as a sort of Mulatto in the spring.

Do you not think he went to Harvard?
You are spot on though, it will be an exact repeat of the Bush election, where he did not receive the votes from the people of this country, but was their choice and ended up winning. They definitely will have their sheeet on point and will not need a re-count. They will have things in place.
I also back in the day would not think this is possible, but this portion of our country seems to be a different breed then us and will do whatever is necessary to get what they want.
It is hard sifting through the propaganda, but well worth it in the end, to be able to see what is really going on out there.

I think of him as more...Cafe Latte colour myself....

Wasnt Hes Daddy Black as Coffee and Hes Momma White as Milk....see = Capacino or a Cafe Latte.

"What we need is a great big a mountain top"
"Big enough, big enough, big enough, for the World and all its got"
"Full of Coffee coloured people, all around...........etc etc" (I forgot the words....)

Any president that does not get shot at is a puppet. Oh wait, I forgot about Reagan.

Its still a win for blacks. A black guy gets to be the puppet this time.

Regan was the ultimate puppet. Insert Hollywood actor president with Alzheimer and push through everything on the puppeteers agenda w/o any resistance.

How does one rubberstamp president get to be ultimateer than another?

Cornell Wessssssst is a racist gibbering idiot that rambles more run on and inconsistent "thoughts" than my 100 year old grandmother with Alzheimer's. Hes made a fortune off "sticking it to the honkeys" and playing the race card more times than Jesse at a country club. His statement proves a broken clock is right twice a day, but who really cares, coming from a "professor" that told the Dean that it was racist he was made to actually teach and come to class when he was warned he actually had to show up for work. The guy is a clown of the highest degree that has hustled his way to a paycheck by riding the white guilt magic carpet to tenure.

Dr. West is a shill for corporate media so that instantly erases him of any credibility as all he's doing is playing the role he was ordered to do. To try and create the illusion that African Americans are disenfranchised with Obama. Nothing more then a corporate hack.

I will put more trust into both Dr. Michael Eric Dyson and Neil deGrasse Tyson combined as they are actually intellectuals before I listen to a thing that West says.

Some of you guys write that the election is going to be fixed because Obama couldn't possibly receive enough votes to win states.

I really have to scratch my head when I read these things? Where do thoughts like this come from? Dpes every registered voter you know think this way? Do all your neighbors think Obama is a secret Kenyan muslim nationalist with a socialist agenda?

News Flash...............The majority of The United States of America does not think like that.

I'm not justifying him as POTUS, but I am clearly stating that I don't think some of you are in touch with your fellow countrymen. Not everyone loves Regan and millions will indeed vote for Obama, again.

*sigh*
I am not surprized, sadly by the responses here. Obama = puppet seems to be the meme currently.

Since it can't be his fault, since his policies are not popular, since he is making mistake after mistake, it's obvious that Obama is "puppet".


What ever happened to personal responsibility?
Obama can "kill" Usamma bin Laden, but gas goes up and he's a puppet.
Obama wants to close Gitmo, but he can't, cause he's a "puppet".
It's not Obamas' fault we are at war in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Obama is a "puppet".

But if unemployment drops, Obama gets the credit.
If it rises? Then Obama is a "puppet".

Economy gets better? All Obama, all the time.
Economy gets worse? Obama is just a helpless "puppet".

The Obama/puppet card is being played in lieu of the race card. But in the end, it's just a trick to absolve himself of any responsibility or blame.

I guess being responsible is too much to ask for.

Where is your thoughts coming from where you say Dr. West is just playing the role to create the illusion that African Americans are disenfranchised with Obama? Where are your sources? Who told you this?

No, I do think it is possible that the elite will use the media like they did in the past election to help Obama win his re-election. I think it is possible that the majority of our country will re-elect him. The thing I am pointing out is that no matter what does happen he will get elected. No matter if we all vote for him or against him; he will find himself the head of our country no matter what.

Being responsible has always been too much to ask of our government.
