The conservative commentators are piling on. Micheal Gerson writes about Romney's "Ideology without promise."
In discussing the disappointing theme of makers versus takers, he penned a line that will resonate with several folks here, Gerson referred to an author popular with the Republican right wing:
Yet a Republican ideology pitting the “makers” against the “takers” offers nothing. No sympathy for our fellow citizens. No insight into our social challenge. No hope of change. This approach involves a relentless reductionism. Human worth is reduced to economic production. Social problems are reduced to personal vices. Politics is reduced to class warfare on behalf of the upper class.
A few libertarians have wanted this fight ever since they read “Atlas Shrugged” as pimply adolescents.
Think Mr. Gerson might be bit skeptical of Mr. Ryan?
