Dreams

I saw a Tweet last night from Eric Cantor, who, along with Mitch McConnell, is one of the Chief Obstructors of the Republican Party, obstructors who have helped keep economic growth sluggish under President Obama and thereby hurt folks who haven’t achieved the dream that, say, Mitt Romney has achieved.

Cantor’s message is one, ironically, that pretty much sums up the purpose of the Republican Party and the reason Mittens wants to be prez:

Mitt Romney is the candidate for people…who dream big dreams and achieve them, he said.  “And achieve them.”

Hmm. If you are a person who dreams big dreams but doesn’t quite achieve them, Mitt Romney’s not your guy.

I think Cantor got that just about right.

    There are only two parties to chose from. Thus might one consider the opposite of the Ryan quote for those opposing the GOP. Here is such phrasing, hypothetically:

    “President Obama is the candidate for people that demand equality of outcome – for those that do not aspire to significant achievement (on their own) and fail to achieve even smaller goals (in their personal lives)”.

    I would add a rare quote from the “little jerk”, my name for Santorum, with which I agree. He said, “If you graduate from High School, work hard all your life and wait until you get married before you have children, your chances of living in poverty are about 2%. If you don’t do all three then your chances of living in poverty are 38 times higher”.
