“Romney did no such thing. He merely did what his constituents wanted.”

That’s not leadership.

Oh well. Hopefully November 7th we can start kicking Romney to the curb after the first term and put in Bachmann, Santorum, or a conservative.

This is FreeRepublic, not DreamLand. If we had any real power the Clintons would be in jail, and Apple would be broke.

There is little hope that we will ever have a Real Conservative again and I am too long in the tooth to worry about it any more.

We have lost the fight because we can't define the enemy, so maybe it is us.

Can You imagine Romney doing that crap?

Well yes, yes I can, but he will smile while doing it, unlike the scowling commie we have now.

mylife you may be shocked to learn that States also have Constitutions, RomneyCare was unconstitutional under the State Constitution. You pimp everyone of these threads and all you do is make matters worse.

“The point that is often missed and never reported on by the Obamedia is that Romney stresses that the Mass HC plan was a state decision and that any other attempts to insure people through taxation should also be a state decision.”

So you don’t have any objection to Obamacare other than it should have been done by the states instead of the federal government?

Romney said this because he knows he is losing as does him campaign and he knows the 47% tape comment hurt him, regardless of what the Rush spin machine claims.

Remember a month ago or so when the Romney spokeswoman referred to Romney care as a positive example and Ann Coulter went into a fit?,

so, what youre saying is that in POTUS politics, when a candidate has an actual, demonstrable record, that eventually the candidate will have to run on that record, and try to convince everyone that the warts are are really beauty marks ???

do this hold true even when the revelations of past *accomplishments* do more harm than good ???

need to find my memory-hole...

Yes, I believe the prior strategy of ‘ don't talk about what I did in MA, and don't give details about what I will do if elected, just talk about the bad economy 24/7.’ was a doomed one from the start. It assumed that Obama wouldn't aggressively attack his character, wouldnt fill in the details themselves and that the MSM wouldnt start reporting good economic news before the election.

Look at what Romney was trying to get across with this message, that he is compassionate. His campaign knows the 47% video hurt him bad and this is a response to that.

Romney just is the wrong candidate for this time. I am not even going to join in criticizing him for this statement, he is in a box.

wrong for anytime...and the box is of his own making, and as you indicate, was inevitable from the gitgo...

eventually he *had* to address his record, and try to shine that turd, while tightly gripping its corn textured tip...

Like McCain, Romney was forced to adopt many positions that are not his that he cant explain and that he is scared to talk about. That is a proved failed model. The "I dont give a crap who the R candidate is, we must defend the ABBO" model is a failed model.

The Difference between Ca and Tx is that Ca embraces the relationship.

If you believe that you haven't been paying attention.

CA's liberal leadership have followed TX's lead and have embraced every part of the 'relationship'. All that means is they have thrown in the towel and made coming here more inviting to ILLEGAL aliens who might otherwise go elsewhere.

Your loser governor and the TX legislature deserve credit for for leading the way.
