Politico‘s Emily Schultheis flags an interesting line from a speech by Mitt Romney today at a Chicago fundraiser:
“It’s individuals and their entrepreneurship which have driven America. What America is not a collective where we all work in a kibbutz or we’re all in some little entity, instead it’s individuals pursuing their dreams and building successful enterprises which employ others and they become inspired as they see what has happened in the place they work and go off and start their own enterprises.”
The more he talks about it, the less clear it is what Romney admires about Israeli culture. Evidently, everything but the socialisty parts.
