Gibbs goes after Forbes

Ed Driscoll on Robert Gibbs attack on Forbes: "Nice magazine you’ve got there Mr. Forbes. Be a shame if something were to happen to it..."

The Forbes article is interesting. In it, Dinesh D'Souza talks about the anti-colonialist roots of Obama's father and uses that to frame the President's policy preferences. D'Souza's argument is an interesting one; however, I find his assertion that Obama is fulfilling his father's anti-colonialist dreams to be tenuous. Perhaps a more complete argument is available in D'Souza's forthcoming book: The Roots of Obama's Rage.

If that's not enough to convince you to pre-order the book, think of your purchase as a protest of the White House's thuggishness and throw in a subscription to Forbes, too!
