More Thomas Sowell on Obama

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

So really can someone tell me one thing Obama has accomplised other then getting the Democratic parties nomination?



  1. More bad news today:

    November 2, 2008
    Gallup Daily: Obama Continues to Outpace McCain
    PRINCETON, NJ — Voters’ presidential preferences remain favorable to a Barack Obama win on Tuesday, with 51% of traditional likely voters supporting the Democratic nominee for president, and 43% backing John McCain. An additional 1% say they support some other candidate, leaving 5% undecided.

    Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby Poll: One Day Is Not A Trend: Obama Holds His Lead
    Obama 49.5%, McCain 43.8%
    Released: 11-02-2008
    Next Release: 11-03-08, 1:00AM

    UTICA, New York — After a strong day of polling for Republican presidential candidate John McCain on Friday, Democrat Barack Obama experienced a strong single day of polling on Saturday, retaining a 5.7 point advantage that is right at the edge of the margin of error of the Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby daily tracking poll. The race has remained remarkably stable down the stretch, this three-day rolling average poll shows.

    Pollster John Zogby: “Obama has consolidated his lead over McCain. His single day lead today was back to 52%-42%. He leads by 10 among independents and has solidified his base. He leads among Hispanics by38 points, African Americans by 88, 18-24 year olds by 36, 18-29 year olds by 25, 25-34 year olds by 16, women by 8, and men by 3. He has a 17 point lead among those who have already voted, 22 by those who have registered to vote in the past 6 months, Moderates by 34, Catholics by 10. He even receives 21% support among Conservatives.

    “So what happened to give McCain a one-point lead in the one-day polling on Friday? It was a day of consolidation for him, too. He had been losing support among key groups and began to regain some of his own base. He now leads by 21 points among NASCAR fans, 9 among investors, 6 among voters in armed forces households, and 2 among voters over 65 years old.

  3. Ron what does that have to do with my question? I’m debating if I should just delete you comment as spam since it has nothing to do with the topic at hand.
