That's not what I said. I said he supported the same thing as Romney, which is true. Of course, if I'm not mistaken, Newt favored the individual mandate at the federal level, which is worse than Romneycare, and worse than what Romney is proposing.
I am saying Newt on policy is just as bad and in some cases worse than Romney. Whether or not he is susceptible depends on how badly the Tea Party wants to let Newt pull the wool over their eyes.
The individual mandate is just one component of Obamacare, and the balance of Obamacare and its similarities to Romneycare there is no equivalence between the two.
