Two from NRO Digest..

 

THOMAS SOWELL: Obama doesn’t understand the nature of violenceMeasuring Force.

“Those who expected his election to mark a new “post-racial” era may be the most disappointed. He has appointed people with a track record of promoting race resentment and bias, like Attorney General Eric Holder and Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor“.

“Disappointing? No. Disgusting? Yes. The only disappointment is with voters who voted their hopes and ignored his realities.”

 

ANDREW C. McCARTHY: If we expect the successors of Mubarak and Qaddafi to be freedom-loving democrats, we will be dangerously disappointed. Middle East Howlers.

 

A “howler,” the Wall Street Journal called it in an editorial yesterday. That certainly is a fitting description of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s latest mindboggling foray into Middle East analysis. It makes sense, she maintains, for American armed forces to get “kinetic” in Libya but not in Syria because Moammar Qaddafi is a brutal dictator while brutal dictator Bashar Assad is really a “reformer.” Perhaps she has been watching too much al-Jazeera, this former first lady who was so instrumental in her husband’s airbrushing of the terrorist kleptocrat Yasser Arafat — a peace-seeking statesman . . . at least between intifadas.
