Mitt Romney refused to criticize his Massachusetts health-care program tonight, saying he would prefer to lose the primary rather than renounce it.
“I’m standing by what I did in Massachusetts,” Romney said on Fox News Channel’s Special Report with Bret Baier. “I’m not trying to dust it aside. I’m absolutely firm that it was the right thing for our state. I’ll defend that and I understand it has political implications. And if it keeps me from winning a primary, so be it. But that happens to be the truth.”
“It’s by far, the biggest challenge I have in the primary race,” Romney admitted, before going on to criticize his rivals. “And if I were willing to say anything to get elected, wouldn’t I just say, ‘oh, it was a mistake,’because I’ve watched other people on the stage when they talk about their cap-and-trade policies, they say, ‘oh, that was a mistake.’ When someone says, ‘oh, I did this ad on global warming,’ that was a mistake. So they’ve just brushed it aside.”
What the hell is wrong with this guy? Gingrich has stated that he was wrong to support Global warming and the individual mandate, but Romney, he hasn’t renounced crapola. Romney isn’t a Republican folks. He is a Democrat. He should be taking Biden’s spot as VP. I am being serious, RomneyCare isn’t this guys only problem.
Plus he called Newt a career politician this week, when Romney has flipped on every issue and will tell you whatever he wants to get your vote. I know it’s better to rip Obama on his failed policies, but I am not going to let the Republican party nominate a mush, phony Republican. Like it or not, our battle isn’t only Obama and the Democrats. It starts with the GOP establishment and ends with Obama. If you’re too scared to fight them, go home now.
