Dr. Cornel West: ‘Obama is a Disastrous Response to a Catastrophe’
The Huffington Post recently caught up with Dr. Cornel West and asked him his opinion of both President Obama and Mitt Romney. Although West said Obama is a better choice than Romney, it wasn’t exactly a glowing endorsement.
“Mitt Romney is a catastrophic response to a catastrophe, whereas Obama is a disastrous response to a catastrophe. Is disaster better than catastrophe? Yes it is. I wish we had a third candidate who could actually do something, but we don’t at the moment,” West said.
Regarding President Obama’s drone policy, West said: ”The drones with the bombs killing innocent civilians needs to be taken very very seriously,” West said. “You can’t hide and conceal that. So when I think of foreign policy, I connect the drones on the one hand to the corruption and incompetence and inefficiency of the Karzai regime.”
“So I have a very very deep disagreement with the kind of U.S. foreign policy at the moment that Barack Obama is promoting,” West added.
