As long as it happened sixty or so years ago…
[During his RNC speech, Romney said] "I was born in the middle of the century in the middle of the country, a classic baby boomer. It was a time when Americans were returning from war and eager to work. To be an American was to assume that all things were possible. When President Kennedy challenged Americans to go to the moon, the question wasn't whether we'd get there, it was only when we'd get there."
It must've been a wonderful time, back when there were no liberal government handouts like the G.I. Bill to stifle the entrepreneurial spirit with business loans, affordable educations and unemployment benefits.
And the moon. It's a good thing we had good old-fashioned capitalism to put Neil and Buzz up there. (NASA is a privately owned subsidiary of Coca-Cola, right?)
