The previous post featured a mini-rant about the role that "I Care" plays in politics. I had argued that it doesn't matter whether a politician believes in God or whether she "cares" about this group and that group. Give me competence and good decisions.
Now comes the opposite point of view in today's Wall Street Journal, "Romney's businessman pitch won't work," by Robert R. Reilly.
He says: "If you cannot articulate the cause for which you are fighting in moral terms, you will lose." (Doing so apparently worked this week for Rick Santorum.)
Maybe that's the problem with our form of government. Convince the voters that you "care" -- and you'll win elections -- no matter if you're qualified or not.
