I don't accept the premise that person X being wealthy means that person Y has to be poor, so it doesn't bother me that Democrats can be wealthy. However, it is a problem for the zero-sum crowd.
It's much easier to be generous with other people's money than your own. I can advocate all the wealth redistribution programs in the world if I'm not talking my own cash. And, considering the damage these entitlement programs are causing to the economy, as well as the sense of entitlement that so many people have, it's hard to say that these programs are an unqualified success, either in terms of dollars or philosophically.
Only to folks such as yourself who think scum exist on only one side of the aisle. How many war-starting Democrats (JFK and LBJ, for example) equals how many pedophile Republicans? What's the equivalence? How many Arnold "the Gropinator" Schwarzeneggers equals how many Robert "Sheet" Byrds?
What "blind eye"? Did I say that the list was a lie? That Republicans are above reproach? It's folks like you who turn a "blind eye" to the criminal/scummy actions of all politicians who are the bigger problem, IMHO.
