I have completely lost my respect for Obama and I understand why after listening to Loury's explanation of why he is disappointed by Obama's theatrics and rhetorical posturing, which he likens to that of Cornell West, all show and very little substance.

I understand why Larry Summers was disappointed in Cornell West, and I understand why so many of Hilary Clinton's supporters find it difficult to support Barack Obama.

I guess I am a thread necromancer. But the idea of West being all show and no substance is something I have been screaming at the tv screen for years when he appears on bill mahers show or Tavis Smileys show on pbs. He is like a milder version of the ULTIMATE all talk no substance creature in Michael Eric Dyson (shudders at that mans capacity to use Soooooo many words to say so little ).
