Skip to comments.Sachs: 'Victor Davis Hanson Has Done More Harm To American People' Than Any Other Commentator
Posted on 12/23/2010 6:07:54 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
Jeffrey Sachs has attacked distinguished military historian Victor Davis Hanson as an "extremist" who "has done more harm to the American people" than any other commentator.
Sachs, a Columbia prof and income redistributionist supreme, launched his surprising verbal assault in commenting on Hanson's National Review Online column, "The Obamites' About-Face." Hanson there makes the case that out of political pragmatism, Obama has flip-flopped on everything from "the environment, radical Islam, taxes, stimulus, the economy, national security" to foreign policy.

Left-wing prof calls Victor Davis Hanson an “extremist” who has “done more harm to the American people” than any other commentator.
I treasure everything that Victor David Hanson writes. I agree with most of his opinions.
It’s just so unbelievable that someone like Sachs, ostensibly with a high IQ (albeit wrong about everything), cannot think of an appropriate way to respond to an article he disagrees with other than hysterical ad hominem charges of this sort. It’s disgraceful.
Hanson is who is and Jeffrey Sachs is who he is, a nothing.
Gee, I wonder why they don't...
Jeffrey “Ball” Sachs - must be the sharpest bulb in the tool shed.
VDH PING! What a Christmas present for Victor Davis Hanson. To be singled out by a Marxist professor as a Lib's "Worst Person in the World". What a tribute! VDH forever; Geoffrey 'Goldman' Sachs never.
Keep up the good work!
He looks like Dan Fielding. Except Dan was a lot smarter. It must suck for a guy like Sachs who can never think on his own. He will always be a colorless face in the lefty stable.
VDH is the absolute best. An educator that used to lean left, then grew up. And boy did he grow into a fine guy.
Thanks, TC: and Merry Christmas to you.
That’s rich. VDH is evil and has done harm to us poor, unwashed idiots. We really should only listen to the wise, good-hearted sages in leftist academia. After all they only have our best interests at heart. [sigh] If only we idiots knew better.
Sachs is pissy because VDH frequently ridicules achedemia and their mindless liberalism. He knows of what he speaks, having spent much time at Stanford Univ among others.
Reading VDH is like a breath of sanity in a world gone mad.
VDH ping (if you haven’t seen already).
The prof is what I call a “Zen Liberal”.
I wonder if his wife takes out tonsils just to rack up the bill? Did the Sachs family take any offense when Obama said that or did she stop taking out tonsils out of guilt?
BTW, I know pediatricians don't take out tonsils....
Because the constitution doesn’t allow the federal government to tax wealth. Fortunately.
BTW, that’s why we have an “inheritance tax”, and not an “estate tax”.
A tax on an estate would be a wealth tax, and the feds have no authority. A tax on “inheritance” is a type of income tax, which they can do under the 16th amendment.
