Did Pam Bondi really defend RomneyCare?
There is some bluster going around the internets about Pam Bondis interview with Greta last night, suggesting that she not only defended RomneyCare, but that she will also help Romney institute it when/if he becomes president. But Ive listened to the interview and I believe this is NOT TRUE.
Im not a Romney supporter and I am not going to bat for him here. I just hate when misinformation gets thrown out there and people latch on to it as if it were true.
If you listen to the interview below, youll first hear Rush talking about the similarities between RomneyCare and ObamaCare. Greta then asks Pam Bondi, who is currently fighting ObamaCare in court, what she thinks about what Rush had just said. But for some reason, instead of commenting on what Rush said about RomneyCare, she does a switcheroo and compares what Rush said to Romneys current plan on health care that he would implement as president. Youll notice she uses the word would a lot in her answer. Shes obviously looking in the future and not in the past, which is weird, because she was asked specifically about RomneyCare.
You can speculate as to why she did that perhaps she didnt want to sit there and defend RomneyCare. But the way she answered the question has led people to believe she was talking about RomneyCare, and, because she said shes been offered a job in the Romney administration helping implement his health care plan, people now believe shes going to help Romney implement RomneyCare.
You can listen and decide for yourself, but thats my take:
She did not even answer the question. You are correct.
The guy who runs the Right Scoop is a clown. I forget what name he posts under here on Free Republic, but he was originally on a Santorum crusade against Newt and now is a dedicated Mittbot who never fails to spin things for his new master.
Here is another video of Bondi doubling down on RomneyCare:
