An Outline For Use On RomneyCare

Posted on | November 23, 2011 | 10 Comments

Right Klik has done a superbe job in composing a video on RomneyCare:

I have not done the homework to see whether every single bullet point this video makes is valid. Then again, I’m no Romney apologist. Mitt just seems too glib about the way keen swellness of RomneyCare. But the 2012 election is not an episode of Leave it to Beaver, for all of the Ward Cleaver polish Mitt brings to the role.

One can expect the Romney campaign will have some issues with the video’s review of RomneyCare. Unlike #OccupyResoluteDesk, Mitt cannot blow off RomneyCare criticism the way BHO has blown of criticism of ObamaCare (as part of his overall Blow Off The Presidency program). Mitt has to stand and deliver. Thus far, Mitt has refused to admit he has an ugly baby. This refusal bumps Mitt in the delusional direction of BHO.

The Romney campaign’s master stroke on the RomneyCare issue is to admit that the execution was sub-optimal* and then describe in detail the lessons learned. Extra credit for the realization that all of our federal entitlements are daft, and describing the plan to wean the country off of that noise.


*A weasel word meaning “stone cold disaster”.

    If those facts are true, that is a devestating ad against Romney. 

    Are they true?  Right Klik should have a web page with its back up.

    Mitt is a liar. Period. He has no empathy for what he believes are the lower classes. HealthCare is a gigantic racket and he is a base racketeer.
    Phony has no equal to Mitt Romney.

    What lie did Mitt Romney tell? And, by the way, in what state have health care costs gone down in the last five years?

    Why did Romney veto  EIGHT sections of the bill that filthy fucking LIARS accuse him of writing?

    Why didn’t he veto ALL of it, which a conservative would have?

  • Ccoffer

    Why didn’t he declare himself Emperor of Massachusetts? Better yet, why would he soil his “conservative” credentials by running for office in his own state? He should have been from some other state.

    Smart.

    Shorter ccoffer: “Look, a squirrel!”

    He had the ability to veto it; he didn’t and embraces it as a good thing. Clorox dipped Obama: Q.E.D.

    Smitty:

    Thanks for the post and thanks for the kind remarks!
    As you noted, the facts in the video are discussed in detail at the page you linked. 

    Joe: 

    Those watching the video will find the same information with the web address shown at the very end of the video.  I encourage everyone to confirm the information provided.  The extensive details are actually much more damning than anything I could cram into a short video.

    Why is Massachusetts “his own state”? You can take up residency in any state, the last I checked, and after so long you can qualify to run for any office, at least in most of them. Why didn’t he take up residence in Michigan, where his father had been a popular governor, popular enough that Mitt will probably win that state’s primary based on his father’s legacy? Could it possibly be he chose to take up residence in Massachusetts because he knew that would give him the cover to govern as the RINO he really is?
