During the GOP debate tonight Mitt Romney was asked who he would define as being rich. Romney refused to answer.
“I don’t try and define who is rich and who is not rich,” said the former Massachusetts governor. “I want everybody in America to be rich. I want people in this country to have opportunity. I want everybody to have the kind of opportunities that we on this stage have had.”
I am not a fan of Mitt Romney. I think it would be a mistake to nominate him. But I’ve got to say that these comments during the debate are a refreshing departure from the class warfare rhetoric that has been dominating so much of the national debate of late.
It’s not about equal outcomes. It’s about equal opportunity.
