…blames looters, moochers, and takers for his failure to win against “worst President in history”. The GOP leadership seems to be digging in on this narrative as it plunges deeper into the bubble of unreality it has created for itself.
Romney, being an adult Mormon, is already deeply used to accepting unreality at a profound level, so one can hardly expect him to suddenly cease constructing unreal narrative now. But there is no reason Catholics have to emulate that. Prudence says that we should treat with reality, including the reality that the Randian vision of class warfare that is the subtext of Romney’s self-serving blame-shifting is unwise for anybody who wants to actually listen to Catholic social teaching, not to mention anybody who hopes to avoid a repeat drubbing.
