Romney Spokeswoman Defends Insurance Mandate

    Romney has shown himself to be nothing more than smoke and mirrors.  He has done an about face on every issue he has ever come across, from saying he would be "to the left" of Ted Kennedy on gay rights, to coining an op-ed USA today claiming the federal government should look at his plan as a guide to solving our health care crisis.

    Now his spokeswoman is doing even better, and many conservatives have come to see their candidate will not be able to mount any attack on Obamacare without looking ridiculous.

      Hey Sooner,

      The sad part is her own party is punishing Andrea Saul for telling the truth.

      “The thing is, though, Saul's logic in citing Romney's creation and implementation of CommonwealthCare in Massachusetts is impeccable. Her baseline argument: If you are going to hit Romney with the Bain practices that allegedly led to this woman losing her health insurance, you surely must credit him for his legislative accomplishments, which enabled thousands of uninsured people to obtain life-saving care. That is, for the most part, pristine reasoning.” {1}

      The truth reveals the hypocrisy of politics one more time. Thank you for posting, Sooner.

        A moment of honesty was met with outrage.  Just like when Romney gave his honest opinion about the Olympics, outrage ensued.  If Romney were running a more honest campaign, the woman's point would've been much better.  Unfortunately, he's running away from the mandate.

    Romney is either proud of his accomplishments or not as governor. He can't have it both ways! He's all over the place, according to which crowd he's in front of. Saul will probably be fired over telling the truth!

    Unfortunately, Romney has had to make stances and go back on things to get the GOP nomination. It really sucks, because it's the only way for a more moderate conservative to get the nomination.

    Our two-party system really sucks. Every candidate on both sides makes promises and statements that they don't agree with or don't intend to keep, because it's all about getting elected.
