As much as I’m getting annoyed with Big Government’s fit of anti-Romney bias (or as I’m now going to call it Romney Derangement Syndrome) Donlyn Turnbull is one of the few writers over there I don’t have any complaints about and articles like this one are the reason why:
You should go read the whole article but here’s a sample:
The President remarked that…
“If you’re willing to put in the work, the idea is that you should be able to raise a family and own a home; not go bankrupt because you got sick, because you’ve got some health insurance that helps you deal with those difficult times; that you can send your kids to college; that you can put some money away for retirement, that’s all most people want. Folks don’t have unrealistic ambitions. They do believe that if they work hard they should be able to achieve that small measure of an American Dream.”
When I first heard this comment I thought it was so sad. Then, as the anger crept in, I thought, does President Obama not understand where he lives?
“Unrealistic” thinking is the very principle this country was founded on.
