    oh, definitely. Romney doesn't actually believe the line about federalism - he just uses what happens to be a legitimate argument to try to get himself off the hook. Romney's central belief system is RomneyshouldbePresident-ism; not any kind of coherent, mutually reinforcing universal a priori arguments about mankind.

    Just listen to this where he says he will support Obamacare if he drops the public option, and don't put anything bad in it. He never talks about states rights. I would have a much easier time to support Romney if he could be honest.
    agreed.

    At the end of the day, there is nothing liberal about Obama. Obama is more to the right than Nixon.
    Why put "undisclosed" as a lean and then post that? It's as if people have no self awareness. Like they're hiding something.


    ps. This is a thread about Romney, right? haha

    Honestly, I don't think it matters. After Florida there are basically two adult choices considering Perry's failure.

    Huntsman and Romney. I'd like to entertain the idea of President Johnson but that's not happening.

    Huntsman is dead in the water for being honest and being moderate. So that leaves Romney. The GOP can vote for an adult candidate or a non-adult candidate. It really just comes down to if they want Obama out.

    It's not going to help him but he knows now that it would be wrong to keep Obama's version around. He needs to be clear on that every time it comes up.

    Re: Will Romneycare destroy Romney's electability?

    Unsure on this one, you would think that Romneycare would be a real issue going up against other Republicans. Especially in the context of Obamacare being more or less a national version of the state level Romneycare. But, so far he is doing well enough in the debates and the resulting straw polls to suggest Romney is still in the mix. I really am surprised by his results thus far.

    Im not surprised...and the reason is that america has always rejected the far left and the far right....either or gets a slight foothold now and then but its always shortlived...americans do not like the extremes....and the teaparty is extreme

    Except in this case you are equating "the individual mandate" to purchase health insurance with a rejection of the far left and the far right, which I cannot agree with. And in terms of the Republican primary it is rather surprising to see a Republican doing as well as he is post his application of an individual mandate at the state level. Something you would think would label him, right or wrong, as a liberal.
