More Obama Nonsense (to put it nicely)

Obama: "Romney has a one-point plan: let the rich play by a different set of rules."

Groothuis: This is meaningless nonsense (on stilts). What could it mean? The "rich" live under the same Constitution and laws that everyone else does. The rich pay a higher percentage of tax than do lower income groups. They also pay more in absolute money than any other group. So what could Obama mean? It means nothing, nothing, nothing. Rather, it stokes class envy. The rich do not play by a different set of rules; rather, they play the rules in such a way as produce a different outcome from what many achieve: great wealth. But Obama thinks that if the rich are rich, they must have cheated. Why think that?
