Out of Mani, One - WSJ.com

Out of Mani, One - WSJ.com: ""What's going on," she said, "is you have billionaires who are trying to buy this election because they understand that Gov. Romney will put in place policies that put more dollars into their pockets while taking dollars out of the middle class. And you have contributors to President Obama's campaign who are doing it because they want to grow the economy for everyone in a fair and equitable way."

Note carefully what is being asserted here. It's not just that Democratic ideas are morally superior to Republican ones or that Barack Obama is a better president, or a better man, than Mitt Romney or would be, or is. Rather, the claim is that whereas billionaires who support Romney are greedy and selfish, those who back Obama are altruistic--or, to the extent they have a selfish motive, it is a relatively benign one, a simple desire to be in the presence of the Dear Leader."
