BOSTON Republican Mitt Romney is finding it hard to avoid comparisons between the Massachusetts health insurance mandate he signed into law and the federal version enacted by President Barack Obama as he weighs another presidential run.
A federal judge struck down the Obama mandate last week, and appeals of that ruling and other court challenges are likely to wend their way to the Supreme Court during the next two years, legal experts say....

What does this person stand for?
His pet health care project is the political death of him in this environment.
I don’t know why he even tries....
Mitt could save himself a grundle of money and the carpal tunnels of everyone who comments on government from a Conservative viewpoint by just saying “No” to a run for POTUS.
Romney might have a role in Sarah’s administration, but the last thing we need to undo the catastrophic mess created by Obamao is a two-faced, professional politician.
Mitt Romney mulls presidential run, cant hide from the $50 abortions he signed into law
Realistic choices for Mitt:
1) run as a democrat
2) spend 20 years acting like Palin, then run
With the emergence of the Tea Party, the Republican base has shifted right. Presidential primaries are going to be not so fun for ‘moderates’ or false conservatives.
If Mitt really wants a chance at the Presidency that doesn’t end up with him wasting a lot of money he should consider coming out early in support of Palin and bowing out this go around. He might even get the VP nod. He won’t do it but of course politicians aren’t good at being selfless. Mitt’s problem is Mitt. He had opportunity after opportunity to say he was wrong on Health care. If he hasn’t been definitive up to now then he just doesn’t understand. McCain did understand and once he backed off of amnesty he managed to pull off the primary win. However just like McCain Mitt also has a problem with rising to greatness. People would have loved to follow an old warrior who they sensed was given 100% to the fight. People love to follow a tested business man in the time of economic turmoil but Romney just doesn’t get it. You don’t win hearts and minds by going with the flow, you don’t become great by floating downstream. Obama even with his nearly universal political flaws grasped the reality that lack of conviction and power in one’s message is fatal. People sense when someone is not really in the game with them.
Right now there is only one candidate that is likely to run who carries real grassroots ammunition and that is Palin.
The smart politician will be the one who takes the smart route and helps build on and take advantage of the phenomenon that is Palin because they win nothing in trying to tear her down but certain scorn and a legion of essential voters who will spit on their political graves before voting for them.
I couldn’t find one quote from Romney in the article to suggest that he’s mulling a run, so I guess this is a pretty good article slamming him for the unmistakable similarities in obamacare & romneycare...lol.
Dude! Don’t do it!
I will be one of a long list of people who go out of their way to make you a laughing stock.
I will ridicule you and I vow to never ever support the Republicans again should you find support among the country clubbers.
‘The political toxicity was evident even before the bill-signing, as Kennedy described the reaction of Sen. John McCain of Arizona, who would go on to beat Romney for the 2008 Republican nomination, as the liberal icon headed to Boston for the ceremony.
He said to me, Make sure you put both arms around Mitt, will you Ted? Kennedy told The Associated Press.’
You have him nailed!
Pretty simple there allmost,
Mitt Romney stand for one thing and one thing only, getting his sorry ass elected.
Like a jelyfish he has no spine.
I’ve never really given a rat’s a$$ about Romney. Asking a question seemed appropriate.
