“This is not about oil. This is about snake oil.” ~Thomas Sowell

In his column today, Dr. Sowell puts into words some things that many of us probably think. I know it hits home with me when I read this:

Just what is Obama going to do in his shirt sleeves, except impress the gullible? He might as well have shown up in a tuxedo with white tie, for all the difference it makes.

This government is not about governing. It is about creating an impression. That worked on the campaign trail in 2008, but it is a disaster in the White House, where rhetoric is no substitute for reality.

The United States may well survive the present administration – but not because this administration wanted it that way…
