He attacked Obama, his Democratic rival for the White House, for saying that “when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”

The reasoning is, of course, that the economy and (as a consequence) everyone who participates in the economy benefits when people know that they get to keep all their money when they become rich. Because things trickle.
People who agree with this view are either rich, or have some asinine idea that they’ll one day be rich. They further think that this idea is subtle; that people who don’t hold this viewpoint are simply unable to grasp the complicated reasoning behind it. Keep that in mind; they think they’re seeing behind the curtain.
These are the same people that believe they know how things really work, and you don’t, while they check their horoscopes and rail against the eggheads teaching weird shit to their kids at the university down the road.
Republicans have a profoundly different idea about what the United States should look like than I have.
