Andrew Ferguson tries, really tries, to dig into the Romney literature to find out why he dislikes him, to find the arrogant thread running through his life that he did so memorably with Newt Gingrich and others . . . and he comes up with: nothing, except plenty of evidence of Mitt taking Matthew 6:1-4 very seriously indeed. Deliberately simple. Arranging to be so.
And so Ferguson can only say: he’s a good man. Period. No buts, nor any other qualifications. It’s the shortest “politician’s literature investigation” Ferguson has ever written.
Mitt Romney: one part Blast from the Past, one part Matthew 6:1-4.
