Despite his "Rushmore-like" facial features, John Kerry is no FDR. Thomas Sowell has a devastating article that demonstrates how Kerrys political immaturity and irresponsibility lead him to his never ending demand for "plans." In war, however, some things cannot be planned. Sometimes we have to react--and sometimes we will take it in the shorts and there will be no one to blame but the enemy.
A sample from Sowells piece: "FDR said something else that has relevance today: If we are to be completely honest with ourselves, we must admit that there is risk in any course we take. He said that on December 29, 1940. But today there are those who think you can plan everything and that anything bad that happens is the fault of leaders who did not "plan" for it right. Plan seems to be a magic word politically."
