Dis­as­ter list

The Washington Times Weekly - - Culture, Etc. -

“Add Hil­lar y Clin­ton’s en­dorse­ment of driver’s li­censes for il­le­gal im­mi­grants (‘it makes sense’) to a very long list.

“The list? A seem­ingly un­end­ing se­ries of bad pol­icy pro­pos­als and loopy val­ues that lib­er­als have cham­pi­oned. [. . .]

“Whether it was ed­u­ca­tion pol­icy, wel­fare pol­icy, eco­nomic pol­icy, for­eign pol­icy or so­cial pol­icy, time af­ter time af­ter time what be­came the guid­ing lights of mod­ern Amer­i­can lib­er­al­ism proved to be ut­ter dis­as­ters. [. . .] All too fre­quently peo­ple who were sup­posed to be helped — were se­verely harmed. Most dis­turbingly, the pro­po­nents of th­ese poli­cies seemed to sim­ply shrug their shoul­ders at the re­sults and move straight on to the next dis­as­ter.”

— Jef­frey Lord, writ­ing on “A His­tory of Lib­eral Dis­as­ters,” Nov. 6 in the Amer­i­can Spec­ta­tor On­line at www.spec­ta­tor.org
