The Progressive Case Against Obama: Matt Stoller & Sam Seder's Heated Debate

Sam hosted a near hour long heated interview with veteran activist and Naked Capitalism Contributing Editor Matt Stoller. Matt argued that Obama's policy agenda was regressiveby design, that both major parties are pushing the United States towards petro state status and that progressives should consider voting for a third party as an affirmation of their rejection of the Obama/Romney choice. Sam pushed back against Matt on the consequences of a Romney Presidency for the Supreme Court and emphasised that voting for Obama did not mean that you opposed organizing toward genuine reform. Both Sam and Matt agreed that movement building was was essential for the future no matter who wins the election.
