Twitt Romney at the Values Voters Summit: “The American family is under stress. Is under attack. Ann and I are going to use the bully pulpit to teach Americans that before they have babies, they should get married.” The most Bush-like word in that sentence – no, it’s not “bully” – is “teach.” Just as Bush likes to “remind” people of things that are actually opinions, so Romney will “teach” his own prescriptive admonitions as if they were facts. That’s preaching, not teaching, and he doesn’t know the difference.
