Those men and women who are truly intelligent and consistently aware don't need to laud themselves. Dr. Sowell is one of them. oblama-man is a conceited narcissist and it is beyond my ken to understand why ANYONE admires or trusts him. His nature is to do what is in his own best interests. I truly hope that America survives his and his liberal followers empirically wrong machinations.
The beginning of a new year is often a time to look forward and look back. The way the future looks, I prefer to look back -- and depend on my advanced age to spare me from having to deal with too much of the future.

If there are any awards to be given to anyone for what they did in 2012, one of those rewards should be for prophecy, if only because prophecies that turn out to be right are so rare.

With that in mind, my choice for the prediction of the year award goes to Bret Stephens of the Wall...
