More here: Thomas Sowell I'm waiting for the first liberal to say this columnist is a racist! Sowell is quite correct. From Obama on down, their only excuse for their disasterous policies has been "it's Bush's fault." That might work for the first few months of a new admin, but going on into a midterm it begins to wear extremely thin. Further, the truth is, Democrats have controlled the purse strings since 2007. While the good times were under the purse strings of the Republicans. Both parties have a lot of faults, but the results of each in office speak loudly enough on their own.
