Which Bush are you talking about? Bush I, I would agree, was not stupid.

While I do not believe that Romney is a plutocrat, charitable and philanthropic giving are not incompatible with a belief in plutocracy. In fact, charity and philanthropy can easily fit in as a part of the personal philosophy of a plutocracy when the members of such a class view those acts as a way of controlling the masses (i.e., a contemporary version of bread and circuses) or as the required acts of a code of noblesse oblige.

My lack of respect for Romney doesn't derive from any thought that he might be a plutocrat--which, like I said, I don't believe him to be--but instead arises from the reptilian way in which he said or did anything that he thought would get him the Republican nomination and then the presidency. I don't believe that he believed half of what he said during the campaign; he was, in effect, lying through his teeth to get elected. I disdained that trait in Bill Clinton, and I disdain it in Mitt Romney.
