Repubs Finally Waking Up on Envy

It’s about time Repubs started stating the obvious about Dems.

Mitt Romney said that bashing Wall Street and the top 1 percent is largely driven by envy.

While few people admit to envy, ask practically any psychologist and they’ll tell you that envy is one of the most prevalent and powerful of human emotions. Even Repubs harbor envy but they’re better about keeping it in check.

Of course, the Washington Post writer who reported Romney’s comments is skeptical that envy is a motivating factor. But want evidence of envy? Why, see the Washington Post: “That Wonderful Woman! Oh, How I Loathe Her” by Ann Hornaday.

Next time there’s a counter-protest at an Occupy Wall Street event, the counter-protesters should set up a booth offering free couseling to OWSers on envy management. Envy is a terrible thing for one’s mental and physical health, you know. Yes, it’s a medical fact that too much envy and resentment lead to diseases like cancer and heart disease!
