Hood enlightens state, national audiences

John Locke Foundation President John Hood continued to offer his political expertise this week to readers of National Review Online’s primary blog, “The Corner.” Hood’s take on President Obama’s Afghanistan strategy attracted attention from Michelle Malkin, while highlighted his discussion of human tissue donations. Hood also noted a Pennsylvania critique of the president’s recent jobs forum and poked holes in arguments supporting the federal stimulus package. Closer to home, N.C. Senate Republicans promoted in blast e-mails Hood’s Daily Journal columns on the national health-care debate and the state’s debt problem, while the Asheville Citizen-Times recently interviewed Hood about the potential impact of new Senate Majority Leader Martin Nesbitt. (John Hood, president of the conservative John Locke Foundation, said he expects business lobbies to have a harder time preventing legislation on economic issues like taxes, labor and health care from receiving a hearing. Nesbitt “is simply closer to the left of the Democratic Party than Tony Rand was,” he said.)
