Thank you, Barack Obama! You strayed off your carefully prefabricated script and let voters glimpse the real you more than at any time since you let slip your desire to “spread the wealth around” when you bumped into ”Joe the plumber” four years ago.
Your public comments in Roanoke on July 13—“If you’ve got a business—you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen”—were truly astounding. Mitt Romney called your remarks “insulting.” A friend of mine used the word “ignorant.” Both are correct, but I would add another adjective: Marxist.
