Charlie Rose – A conversation with Naomi Klein and William Greider

Posted by ecoshift on May 13, 2009


On his May 11th show, Charlie Rose asked Naomi and author William Greider about the state of the economic crisis and the next steps President Obama should take. Naomi points out that “the love of Obama is so over the top and this thing that happens to us, particularly in times of crisis, where we almost regress and we want to believe our leaders are going to take care of us–I think that’s unhealthy–I think it’s time to put away the t-shirts and all the memorabilia. He is the president of the most powerful nation on Earth and the superfan culture of the campaign has to be replaced with an engaged citizen culture that puts respectful pressure from below.” Watch the rest of the discussion about Obama’s handling of the economy.
