Dr. Sowell the "New Deal" was not anything positive to allude to. As the incredible Amity Shlaes has shown in her very readable book The Forgotten Man, the pathetic incompetent little cripple Roosevelt was almost as ruinous to this country as the present day incompetent the little criminal Kenyan. As I ready Ms. Shlaes new book Coolidge I believe you might agree with me that Mr. Coolidge was the kind of President we'd really like to have in office. Liberals who love FDR would say he did such a great job as a war leader, but the inimitable Churchill did not think so and I have infinitely more respect for Winston than Franklin.

But the "inimitable Churchill" for all his babbling only did one thing right - he conned the big liar into baling his country YET AGAIN out of their mess. Then American taxpayers got screwed out of a lot of money with the Marshall Plan that rebuilt it and the rest of Europe. The "criminal Kenyan" is merely imitating the big liar.
The main thing wrong with the term limits movement is the "s" at the end of the word "limit."

What are advocates of term limits trying to accomplish? If they are trying to keep government from being run by career politicians, whose top priority is getting themselves reelected, then term limits on given jobs fail to do that.
