Why RomneyCare Makes Mitt the BEST Possible GOP Nominee to Challenge Obama on Health Care" ZOT!
Mitt Romney Central ^ | 2/22/2011 | Jeff Fuller, M.D.

Posted on 02/23/2011 11:36:21 AM PST by Jeff Fuller

Part 2 in a developing series of in-depth analysis by Dr. Jeff Fuller (See part 1 here)

It’s often revealing to turn conventional wisdom on its head and see what’s really hidden underneath. You’ve all heard it, I’m sure, that RomneyCare is Mitt’s doom, an albatross around his neck, his biggest weakness as a potential candidate. In Part 1 of this series I detailed not only how grave some people feel this issue is for Romney’s chances, but also pointed out that Obama and his team of key operatives (Axelrod, Gibbs, and Daley) are all praising RomneyCare as ObamaCare’s predecessor in an effort to hurt Mitt with the GOP’s conservative and libertarian bases. However, below I present what a great asset and strength Romney’s history and experience with health care will be to him as a general election candidate against Obama.

I plan to fight like hell in the primary to ensure that Obama or Romney is NOT the “choice” we have in 2012.

No sale. If Romney get the nomination, I vote Constitution Party or Libertarian.

I hope Mitt is not the nominee. But I would vote for him over Obama. That stated, I think the nominee will be someone else.

You forgot to add “Quadruple bag mega-barfer” in the title.

Myth Wrongney IS NOT A CHOICE.

I am on the front lines of the “healthcare reform” implementation, and it is going to literally crush what is left of the economy as well as the healthcare and insurance industries. Wrongney is a RINO fruitcake, and he has no place being anywhere near government for the rest of his life.

This is what I want to hear from Romney, a simple declarative sentence:

There is no role for the Federal Government in health care. Zero. Nada. None. Period. I will fight with all my energy any attempt to invent one. I will veto any bills that come to my desk containing one.

This is what the author is attempting to make us think is Romney’s position. I need a read my lips statement from the candidate himself.

Jeff, supporting gay marriage, abortion on demand and romneycare makes Mitt a three time RINO loser.

The author has one reason for Romney,
"Hypothetically, even if Romney were the worst candidate
the GOP could put up against Obama on the issue of Health Care,
his economic bona fides would “cover a multitude of [health care] sins.”

Dr. Fuller, you need help.
You lecture from BYU and Alabama about RomneyCARE?
Isn't that special?

MITT ROMNEY - THE PROVEN BAD GOVERNOR

"As U.S. real output grew 13 percent between 2002 and 2006, Massachusetts trailed at 9 percent.
* Manufacturing employment fell 7 percent nationwide those years, but sank 14 percent under Romney, placing Massachusetts 48th among the states.
* Between fall 2003 and autumn 2006, U.S. job growth averaged 5.4 percent, nearly three times Massachusetts' anemic 1.9 percent pace.
* While 8 million Americans over age 16 found work between 2002 and 2006, the number of employed Massachusetts residents actually declined by 8,500 during those years.
"Massachusetts was the only state to have failed to post any gain in its pool of employed residents," professors Sum and McLaughlin concluded.
In an April 2003 meeting with the Massachusetts congressional delegation in Washington, Romney failed to endorse President Bush's $726 billion tax-cut proposal."

being from Michigan and republican - I repeat I will not support Mitt and Ann Romney. I will not support a liberal, I will not support someone whom aligns himself with the Mormon church similar to Harry reid, they are two peas in pod, fake, charlatans and crooks.

The only difference between OdumboCare and the implementer of RomneyCare is a different Empty Suit.

Not really. Maybe Romney has the character Zero lacks to do the will of the people even if his opinions are different. The leftmost Republican would be an improvement over what we have now. Not desirable, but better.

He would also be working with a more nearly conservative congress, unless we really screw up in '12.

If we hold out for perfect we may never win again. Even Ronaldus Magnus had imperfections, rest his soul.

He can come to my front gate & try to persuade me & I still won’t budge.

If the choice was only Mitt or Obama—I would vote Mitt but hold my nose doing it. BUT I would also Vote David Duke over Obama, or Glenn Beck, or Donald Trump, or Jessie Ventura. Any of them would do a better job because none are Communists and all are at very least Americans.

I don’t care if he’s a Mormon, A jew, a Hari Krisna, or a snake handler-—or even an atheist. I only care if he’s an American and a patriot.
