Must Read: "The Most Divisive Campaign in American History" by Daniel Greenfield

Daniel Greenfield, who blogs as "Sultan Knish" (knish being a Jewish pastry), often writes essays that are breathtaking in their accuracy and insight.

His essay today is "The Most Divisive Campaign in American History."

A couple of his salient points:
Romney appeals to voters who are dissatisfied with the last four years. Obama appeals to voters who are dissatisfied with America.
To vote for Obama after years of grotesque economic mismanagement that has no precedent in history, that exceeds the worst actions of Andrew Jackson or Ulysses S. Grant, is not the instinct of an American, but a selfish greedy looter scrambling to grab a few dinner rolls off the tray while the ship is going down. There is no policy justification for voting for a man with the worst economic and foreign policy record in the country's history. There is no American justification for voting for him. Only the UnAmerican motivation of carving up a dying country into group fiefdoms privileging identity politics over the common good.
