Romney Has Public And Private Morality Upside Down is another great little video from Robert Reich.
He’s got private and public morality upside down. He doesn’t want to regulate where regulation is necessary — at the highest reaches of the economy, where public immorality has cost us dearly, and will cost even more unless boardroom behavior is constrained. Yet he wants to regulate where regulation is least appropriate — at the level of the individual, in bedrooms and other intimate spaces, where private morality should govern.
The way I have always put it is “Republicans don’t want the government to touch their money, but their sex life is fair game. Democrats feel ok with the government touching their money, but they want their private parts left alone.”
