Unlike in 2012, in 2016 Americans need a rich president with a sense of noblesse oblige

One has to wonder where this sort of argument was back in 2012. As far as I can remember, it was almost never made by the press in favor of Mitt Romney, and it was sure as hell not made by Clinton’s Democratic party, which went on and on and on about Romney’s wealth and detachment and car-elevator and and magical cancer-giving abilities. Why, one has to wonder, is it suddenly important that our leaders have a sense of noblesse oblige?

That question is rhetorical.
