"To find anything comparable to crowds' euphoric reactions to Obama, you would have to go back to old newsreels of German crowds in the 1930s, with their adulation of their fuehrer, Adolpf Hitler. With hindsight, we can look back on those people with pity, knowing how many of them would be led to their deaths by the man they idolized. ... A leader does not have to be evil to lead a country into catastrophe. Inexperience and incompetence can create very similar results, perhaps even faster in a nuclear age, when even 'a small country'--as Senator Obama called Iran--can wreak havoc anywhere in the world, when they are led by suicidal fanatics and supply nuclear weapons to terrorists who are likewise suicidal fanatics. Barack Obama is truly a phenomenon of our time--a presidential candidate who cannot cite a single serious accomplishment in his entire careeer, besides advancing his own career with rhetoric. He has a rhetorical answer for everything. ... Those who studied the years leading up to World War II have been astonished by how many people and how many countries failed to see what Adolf Hitler was getting ready to do. Will future generations wonder why we slept? ... Yet what are we talking about? Taxing and spending policies, socking it to the oil companies and rescuing people who gambled on risky mortgages and lost. Are we serious? Are we incapable of adult foresight and adult responsibility? ... But what does Obama have besides talk--and adoring crowds?," Thomas Sowell (TS) at nationalreview.com, 16 September 2008.
Numbers? Call a CPA. Blackouts, how dare you? Racist! Why not? There's a movement afoot in Dallas to rename "black holes" since the name is racist. I kid you not. We should not expect more from Obama, a man who is "as non-scientific as the most muddled philospher", see my 22 December 2007 post, http://skepticaltexascpa.blogspot.com/2007/12/us-injustice-system-at-work.html.
