But the most startling sentence is in the preamble, where the Republicans announce they are the party with “a positive, optimistic view of an opportunity society where any American who works hard, dreams big and follows the rules can achieve anything he or she wants.”

Stick with the principles of laziness and making it up as you go along, Gail! It has got you and the rest of the NYT Editorial staff where they are today.
