This is one of the most incredibly stupid statements ever written.
North has no way of knowing how things would have played out with Henry Wallace in the White House. Wallace was Stalin's man, tied to all the Stalinist front groups, and a thoroughgoing Communist. He was redder than Obama, and that's saying a lot.
Making a call on a Wallace-GOP slugfest in the 40's, given FDR's, Bill Clinton's, and Obama's successes in simply issuing E.O.'s to all and sundry as if they were imperial ukases, is an epic exercise in moral hazard for any handicapper.
North is full of it.
Didn’t Henry Wallace later renounce his liberalism and endorse that liberal Richard Nixon in 1968?
