I always refer to Thomas Sowell as the man who SHOULD have been America’s First Black President. In a more perfect world, Sowell would be in the White House and ObaMao would be running around doing a slick and sophisticated version of Al Sharpton (which is what he was doing before the same people who never miss American Idol elevated him.) That’s been the problem since our original founding fathers departed public service; those who SHOULD be serving in high office are too nice, too good, too honest, and too smart to get elected. If we could identify all who aspire from youth to power, prestige, and national office, we could smother them in their beds and America would be a happier place.
“Those who made excuses for all of candidate Barack Obama’s long years of alliances with people who expressed their contempt for this country, and when as president he appointed people with a record of antipathy to American interests and values, may finally get it when they feel some stranger’s hand in their crotch.”
The passage by Edmund Burke that Dr. Sowell refers to is found in “Reflections on the Revolution in France”, written in 1790: “Considerate people, before they declare themselves, will observe the use which is made of power; and particularly of so trying a thing as new power in new persons, of whose principals, tempers, and dispositions, they have little or no experience, and in situations where those who appear the most stirring in the scene may possibly not be the real movers. . . .”
Wow. Apparently, ObaMao is nothing new. Read Dr. Sowell’s piece HERE.
