THE MASTER OF RHETORIC VS. REALITY

Posted by PrestoPundit on 06/10/2008

shines his light on Barack Obama’s letter to the Sec. of Defense.

Image a world where men of the intelligence and character of Thomas Sowell were running for President, and not men of the intelligence and character of Barack Obama.

Money quote:

Perhaps even more important, do the media even care whether Senator
Obama knows what he is talking about? Or is the symbolism of “the first
black President” paramount, even if that means a President with cocky
ignorance at a time of national danger?

The media have been crucial to Barack Obama’s whole candidacy. His
only achievements of national significance in his entire career have
been media achievements and rhetorical achievements.

Perhaps his greatest achievement has been running as a candidate
with an image wholly incompatible with what he has actually been doing
for decades. This man who is now supposedly going to “unite” us has for
years worked hand in glove, and contributed both his own money and the
taxpayers’ money, to people who have sought to divide us in the most
crude demagogic ways.

With all his expressed concern about the war in Iraq, he has not
set foot in Iraq for more than two years– including the very years
when progress has been made against the terrorists there.

You don’t need to know the facts when you have cocky ignorance and the media behind you.
