This is absurd and ridiculous. Here we have candidate Mitt Romney doing his best Barack Obama imitation, but Ron Paul won’t take the slightest swipe at him in a debate? I’m sorry, but this sort of class-warfare rhetoric has no business in a Republican nomination fight, and to hear this from the mouth of Romney tells me all I really need to know. He doesn’t want the 1% to get the same charitable deductions and home mortgage deductions as “middle-class” Americans? I have a question for Governor Romney, who is unwilling to make the logical or moral argument for keeping one’s wealth:
Why not, Mitt? Why are you ashamed of your wealth? Why are you afraid to claim a right to your property and wealth? Why does greater wealth imply a lesser claim to it? This is bizarre and absurd, and it’s another reason the Republican party should never nominate this self-defeating fool. He’s already ceding the argument to Barack Obama. If he’s willing to go this far now, what will he do if he gets the nomination? Grovel? Will he openly apologize for his personal fortune? Will he apologize for the fortunes of others? This man doesn’t deserve to keep his own wealth, because he doesn’t know how to logically defend it against jackals.
This is despicable. Mitt Romney should be ashamed.
