What happens when a reckless gamble turns out to be a disaster? In a recent NRO article, Thomas Sowell voices his dismay over the lack of knowledge American voters had when they elected Barack Obama as president. They knew nothing of his prudence or uprightness as they sent to the White House an untried man whose only qualifications seemed to be “his glib rhetoric and his racial symbolism.”
Members of President Obama’s administration tell the same story about the president—a man too vain and headstrong to take information and advice from knowledgeable and experienced officials. Today we face a real and frightening threat from an epidemic called Ebola. “Yet,” as Thomas Sowell writes, “Barack Obama has refused to bar entry to the United States by people from countries where the Ebola epidemic rages, as Britain has done.”
Read more here from Mr. Sowell as he tries to explain President Obama’s often times inexplicable foreign policy disasters, “with the crowning disaster of all, a nuclear Iran, looming on the horizon.”
