"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Great Thomas Sowell Essay on the "Post-Racial" President

It is hot in Oregon right now. Yesterday, it was 107 F. I don't have air conditioning.

Thomas Sowell had an interesting take on Obama, Gates-gate, community organizing and the whole "post-racial" nonsense. In the rather aptly titled essay "A 'Post-Racial' President?" Sowell sums up a lot of what I would want to say about the subject in less than half the words I would use. Gotta love his intelligent brevity. Check out Sowell's essay here.

And here's a sample from Sowell: "Those who were shocked at President Obama's cheap shot at the Cambridge police for being 'stupid' in arresting Henry Louis Gates must have been among those who let their wishes prevail over the obvious implications of Obama's 20 years of association with the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Anyone who can believe that Obama did not understand what the racist rants of Jeremiah Wright meant can believe anything."

Read the whole essay. It's quite good.
