    Completely false. I've been reading his column for years. They're available online for any who cares to peruse them. Sowell is apparently a well-regarded economist, but his column is mostly hopeless partisanship.

    Here's a link to his columns.

    Here are a few particularly poor installments of my choosing:

    On the ground zero mosque

    On moderation and why Obama is like Hitler

    On how Obama and his 'useful idiots' are dismantling democracy

    On Obama's destruction of American values

    On the doomed operation in Libya

    Thoughtful? Sure.

    Fair-minded and even-handed? When?

    He's a principled man. And he's right most of the time.

    If you said the same thing about the Shah of Iran in 1979, you would have been right.

    Too often in the past, going all the way back to the days of Woodrow Wilson, we have operated on the assumption that a bad government becomes better after the magic of "change." President Wilson said that we were fighting the First World War to make the way "safe for democracy." But what actually followed was the replacement of autocratic monarchies by totalitarian dictatorships that made previous despots pale by comparison.

    Are you sure that you're only slightly liberal?

    I'm not surprised you like him. Which should give our more thoughtful posters a good indication of where Sowell's coming from.

    Well that would depend on to whom I'm being compared. Compared to Thomas Sowell, I'm quite liberal.

    On a scale of 1 to 10, how close is Obama to Hitler?

    This is all for naught.

    The Republicans are not going to nominate Cain. Come on really....

    But mostly he has grown up red.

    Yeah, the left was soiling itself about the overthrow of the Shah, with their cheerleader in chief, Jimmy Carter. They could not wait until the Ayatollahs "freed" them.

    I would prefer him to announce that he will have the most competent conservatives fill each cabinet position. And he will have no need for Czars as the current occupant does.

    Not saying Sowell is part of this group, but those that say they did it all without any PUBLIC help are only lying to themselves.
    Public libraries are most likely to be done in by access to the Internet.
    Public schools should be abolished. Let's have education provided as a commodity much the same way one might by a car, computer, or television. We would have many more choices for what to buy.
