I seem to recall early on in this process, Romney saying something along the lines of, "We need to keep the good parts of Obamacare and fix or replace the bad parts." Now, don't go running around the interwebs repeating that as a statement from God's lips to my ears. I looked for a reliable source (preferably a video of him actually saying such a thing), but it's gone down a memory hole.
Update: Thanks to Bunkerville we have video proof of what he said and links to an excellent article - and we thank him.
Obviously, his handlers informed him that was not a good thing to say, and now he's a bit more forceful about the repeal of Obamacare. The problem is, I don't believe him. And I don't think you should, either.
Obamacare needs to be dragged out into the sun, rubbed in garlic, shot with a silver bullet, and a stake driven through it's heart. After which, to be safe, it should be buried 50 feet down.
As Reaganite Republican pointed out:
Read the rest:Many conservatives -like myself- have been fighting this tooth-and-nail ever since it became apparent the GOP establishment was lining-up behind the grinning chameleon. Of course the biggest problem for us was a lingering doubt he would ever repeal ObamaCare... an imperative hot-button issue for many on the TEA Party right.
Frankly, Mitt is lying when he says he will 'on the first day' (can presidents repeal legislation like that...?): RomneyCare is the template for ObamaCare, and there is precious little daylight between them... he's never made any amends for that monstrosity, has he.
