I'm not defensive. What support reasoning do you expect from me? That is just the way I feel. You are free to feel differently. If we open the Tour poll today 50% (or a bit less) of posters will vote for Froome and what? Will you demand supporting reasonings from them and ask them wrong for lack of these reasonings?
Froome is a better time trialist and not worse climber. Though he is able to gain seconds in the mountains as well.
