Obama The Hitman: First A Cleric, Who’s Next?

The administration of President Barack Obama has itself tied up in quite a knot.

Hamilton’s Curse by Thomas J. DiLorenzo

History can be a funny thing. Sometimes the sands of time obscure facts from those with only a passing knowledge of the truth.

So it is with some of the Founding Fathers. As a group they are revered by many for their knowledge, wisdom and forethought. They are seen as selfless defenders of liberty.

But that view is not completely accurate. Take the case of Alexander Hamilton, described by Thomas J. DiLorenzo in Hamilton’s Curse as essentially the anti-Thomas Jefferson—a man who would be pleased with America’s economic system today.

Hamilton’s Curse is not a biography of Hamilton. Rather it describes “his core political and economic ideas; the intellectual, legal, and political battles over those ideas; and the consequences America has suffered since his ideas were implemented,” DiLorenzo writes.

Although he was a principal author of The Federalist Papers and championed the adoption of the United States Constitution to replace the Articles of Confederation, he began to work immediately to undermine its tenants as President George Washington’s first Treasury Secretary.

The Anti-Incumbent Mood

In what The Washington Post described as “the most powerful demonstration yet of the anti-Washington tide that is altering the nation’s political landscape,” three-term Senator Robert F. Bennett was defeated at the Utah Republican Party’s nominating convention Saturday.

Bennett, who in the past has supported amnesty for illegal aliens, further angered conservatives with his votes to support the Wall Street bailout program in 2008 and with his work last year to craft a bipartisan healthcare bill with Senator Ron Wyden (D-Ore.).

In Utah the GOP selects its candidate through a nominating process at its state convention. Bennett polled third behind attorney Mike Lee and businessman Tim Bridgewater in two rounds of voting, according to The Hill.
