Sowell on Obama's Empty Rhetoric

Thomas Sowell's latest column is a simple and devastating attack on the empty suit of Barack Obama's presidential candidacy. Here's an excerpt, with my favorite part highlighted:

It is not too much to ask politicians to talk specifics, instead of trying to sweep us along, turning off our minds and turning on our emotions, with soaring rhetoric.

Optimists might even hope for some logical consistency and hard facts.

Barack Obama says that he wants to “heal America and repair the world.” One wonders what he will do for an encore and whether he will rest on the seventh day.
