An Elder's Wisdom to the Young Obama

Thomas Sowell, from his deep well of learning, experience, and wisdom, has a scathing indictment of both Obama and Biden ("Ego and Mouth," Nov. 2, 2008).

" Barack Obama has the kind of cocksure confidence that can only be achieved by not achieving anything else."

"The kind of self-righteous self-confidence that has become Obama's trademark is usually found in sophomores in Ivy League colleges-- very bright and articulate students, utterly untempered by experience in real world."

"For someone who has actually accomplished nothing to blithely talk about taking away what has been earned by those who have accomplished something, and give it to whomever he chooses in the name of "spreading the wealth," is the kind of casual arrogance that has led to many economic catastrophes in many countries."

"The equally casual ease with which Barack Obama has talked about appointing judges on the basis of their empathies with various segments of the population makes a mockery of the very concept of law."

"Add to Obama and Biden House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and you have all the ingredients for a historic meltdown."
