On "Selfishness"

Senator Obama is now defending his "spread the wealth" Socialist philosophies by charging that McCain and Palin are making "a virtue out of selfishness."

That's right, if you want to keep more of your hard-earned money and not have it taken from the government to give to others so "everybody’s got a little more money at the end of the month," you're selfish.

Or maybe you want to control how you give away some of your money yourself. That, of course, is a concept which Obama and Biden know little about, as Power Line reminds us. When it comes to donating to charity, both the Democratic candidates have been, frankly, cheapskates. They're perfectly happy to confiscate everyone else's money to spend on their pet projects, but they don't want to open their checkbooks for worthy causes on their own initiative.

Here's another interesting contrast: remember the Obama campaign snarking about how many houses the McCains own? Well, the McCains have provided an elderly aunt with a home in a condo they own.

Obama's own elderly aunt lives in public housing in a Boston slum.

One candidate talks the talk, but only one walks the walk.
