I, of course, don’t deny the premise is true. But the constant hostility to the reality of a guy who has honesty been a successful businessman and is using the fruits of that success to run for president is an odd thing for a classical liberal. It’s an odd thing for an American. We’re the land of opportunity and all that — it’s a great thing.
And, on this guy in particular: It’s not like he hasn’t done the legwork. He’s spent the last year campaigning hard. Getting to know New Hampshire up and down and all the rest. It’s not like he thought he was entitled hasn’t put in the effort.
Their hostility is human. I get it. But it’s odd, I think, when you consider who we supposedly are.
