Ferguson: Not Only Do I Dislike the President’s Budget Policies, He’s Also Black!


I cannot believe the Financial Times agreed to run this lead:

President Barack Obama reminds me of Felix the Cat. One of the best-loved cartoon characters of the 1920s, Felix was not only black. He was also very, very lucky. And that pretty much sums up the 44th president of the US as he takes a well-earned summer break after just over six months in the world’s biggest and toughest job.

I really enjoyed The Pity of War and have spent years being amazed by how nutty Ferguson is as a columnist and pundit.
