From last night’s Saddleback forum:
““Some of the richest people I’ve ever known in my life are the most unhappy. I think that rich is — should be defined by a home, a good job and education and the ability to hand to our children a more prosperous and safer world than the one that we inherited. I don’t want to take any money from the rich. I want everybody to get rich.”
McCain preaches a little moral lesson about how money can’t buy happiness, but then says that he wants everyone to be rich, just like he is. It’s interesting that such a confused string of sentences garnered such a loud applause from room full of evangelicals.
