Re: “Romney and the politics of envy

What great commentary, Mr. Weiler. I disagree with your views and your partisanship, but I sincerely admire the articulate, cogent arguments that you make. Wow, every paragraph is full of ripe, delicious nuggets. Please allow me to start with a few counter-comments of my own. First, the topic of class envy is not really “overdue” for discussion in American political discourse, or in world-wide political discourse. What do you think the French Revolution was about? What about the Russian revolution? The poor, and, yes, the rich, have always been with us. And there has always been class envy, from the days that men lived in caves.
Talk about fairness, or lack thereof. It is grossly unfair to assail Governor Romney for inserting “class envy” into today’s national political discourse, when it is President Obama who has been one of the most renowned leaders bringing up the subject almost every day, almost every speech, almost every waking moment.
Well, that is all for now. But, again, I find this piece to be an excellent commentary on a fascinating subject. (A subject as old as in history as the story of Cain and Able—oh, my God, I hope I do not offend anybody with a reference to the Bible.)
