Mitt Romney will ultimately go down as a contender who was running against himself.
Romney’s campaign sloganeers have firmly established that they don’t even understand how the left/right paradigm even works on this podium placard. We leave it to Gary Johnson to hit him from the right, as he promised.
UPDATE: I agree with most everything Tim Brown says here:
In my opinion, today’s ruling will give ammunition to the GOP for good campaign rhetoric, but will it produce anything of substance when it comes to actually repealing Obamacare? That is the issue. We’ve heard enough rhetoric. Let’s see some action on it that the Constitution affords and leave people alone to make their own choices when it comes to health care, insurance and any other thing that involves their private property. Just get government out of our lives and don’t replace it with anything.
I know it’s hard to wake up. I know how it feels to be safe in our dreamland, but reality is crashing in. What real solution is being pushed forward here? There really is only one, full repeal and don’t replace Obamacare with anything. The American people don’t want it. It isn’t demanded in the Constitution and people should be left to their own pursuits of healthcare should they desire it.
If the Republican Party falls in lockstep with Romney on the replacing rhetoric, that “ammunition” will end up in their own feet.
