In last Thursday’s Republican debate, Rick Santorum explained why Romney would lose the election to Obama if Romney is the party nominee:
“Folks, we can’t give this [ObamaCare] issue away in this election. It is about fundamental freedom.”
And Romney doesn’t think that people should be angry about ObamaCare. He’s either forgotten or doesn’t know why the Democrat incumbents took such a drubbing in the 2010 midterm elections. Earth to Mitt, Republicans and independents threw out the rascal Democrats because they passed ObamaCare.
ObamaCare is the proverbial millstone around Obama’s neck, which is why the issue can’t be given away. Romney’s contention that people shouldn’t be angry over the passage of ObamaCare not only gives Obama the high ground on health reform but also makes the issue moot.
As a politician, Romney lacks real convictions. His one-eighties on issues “have been so frequent and transparently self-serving that a moderately intelligent preschooler could see through them.”
Romney’s issue reversals will make it easy for Obama, Soros’ minions, and the Democrat Party press, aka the mainstream media, to characterize him as the stereotypical unprincipled politician willing to say anything to get elected.
And based on his affinity with Democrat positions, they’d be right.
