Barack Obama has the kind of cocksure confidence that can only be achieved by not achieving anything else.
For someone who has actually accomplished nothing to blithely talk about taking away what has been earned by those who have accomplished something, and give it to whomever he chooses in the name of “spreading the wealth,” is the kind of casual arrogance that has led to many economic catastrophes in many countries.
I can't even imagine the hate mail Sowell must get.
OH! And while blogs have been reporting for some time now that non-citizens (and dead people) are illegally contributing millions of dollars, including individuals giving well over the allowable $2300, to Obama's campaign through assorted frauds, the major media has deemed that unworthy of inquiry. But now the Times of London reports that a foreign national illegally residing in subsized housing in Boston--after a deportation order, even--made repeated campaign contributions accepted by Obama. I won't imply he knew about her specific donation, as clearly no one has ever looked at a list of donor names to see if there was anything interesting, but the Times put this information out on the AP wire where even the FEC might read it.
This just got interesting, and in time for the Sunday paper.
