Sowell: Giuliani v. Obama

By Thomas Sowell The firestorm of denunciation of former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, for having said that he did not think Barack Obama loved America, is in one sense out of all proportion to that remark — especially at a time when there are much bigger issues, including wars raging, terrorist atrocities and a […]
