Sowell Good

Thomas Sowell from National Review Online and one of the brightest commentators on issues of race, economics, and American culture, has zeroed in on the only issue relevant to this Presidential election - national security.

In this NRO article, Sowell gives his insights as to why neither Democrats nor Republicans are excited about their party's choice for Commander-in-Chief. While the media is focused on the historical aspect of the 2008 campaign, Iran is quietly building for war.

Sowell shows that much like 1930's America, so-called intellectuals and appeasers on the left are underestimating the determination of our enemies. They claimed Hitler wasn’t a threat; he could be reasoned with, they claimed.

The same ignorance the American left has today leaves some fool-hearty souls – like one Presidential candidate – believing charm and wit will bring radical Islam to their senses.

They were wrong then, they are wrong now.

Mr. Sowell is a Senior Fellow on Public Policy at the Hoover Institution and author of one of my favorite books, Black Rednecks and White Liberals.

He’s one man not impressed with the Messianic Obama.
