Dr. Sowell, renowned national columnist, whose column USED to appear in the JS, Sowell is no Obama supporter, starts one of his October columns by stating that Abraham Lincoln said, "You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time. but you can't fool all the people all the time."
Dr.Sowell continues, "Unfortunately the future of this country, as well as the fate of the Western world, depends on how many people can be fooled on election day, just a few weeks from now.
Right now, the polls indicate that a whole lot of people are being fooled a whole lot of the time.
Dr. Sowell continues, It raises the question: Do facts matter? Or is Obama's rhetoric and the media's spin enough to make facts irrelevant?
Fact # one: It was liberal Democrats, led by Senator Christopher Dodd and Congressman Barney Frank, who for years--including the present year--denied that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were taking big risks that cold lead to a financial crisis.
It was Dodd and Frank and other liberal Democrats who for years refused requests from the Bush administration to set up an agency to regulate Fannie and Freddie.
It was liberal Democrats, led by Dodd and Frank, who for years pushed for Fannie and Freddie to go even further in promoting subprime mortgage loans, which are at the heart of today's financial crisis."
