Hewitt Award Nominee

"Instead of being a merit society, we’re an entitlement society, where government’s role is to take from some to give to others. What I know is that if [President Obama and the Democrats] do that, they’ll substitute envy for ambition. And they’ll poison the very spirit of America and keep us from being one nation under God," – Mitt Romney

Why has it not been more noticed that Romney has been the crudest, nastiest McCarthyite in this race so far? Only Santorum comes close, with his statement of the president involved in “absolutely un-American activities," to this deranged analysis of Obama's handling of the Green Revolution:

We sided with evil because our president believes our enemies are legitimately aggrieved and thus we have no standing to intervene.

We sided with the opposition but because they asked us not to give a propaganda coup to the regime, we did so without grandstanding. But notice that Santorum has all but accused the president of "siding with evil", with the enemies of the United States. This is an accusation of treason. It appears that it will be a central plank in the GOP platform this fall – and Romney has spearheaded the charge.
