Romney: I'll Take Credit for Obamacare
NRO ^ | Apr. 14, 2010 | Rich Lowry

Posted on 04/14/2010 9:01:50 AM PDT by Al B.

How Romney handles the health-care issue going forward will be a ticklish challenge. I'm pretty sure, though, that this is not the way to do it. From the Sunday New York Times:

[...]

He added, “If ever again somewhere down the road I would be debating him, I would be happy to take credit for his accomplishment.”

Romney: I'll Take Credit for Obamacare

I will work tirelessly to make sure this ObamaClone never gets the nomination.

He has just made up my mind for me.

He’s too dumb to realize he just hammered the final nail in any remote hope of a presidential run.

RomneyCare is a disaster and so is barryCare.
Romney is more than liberal, he really devoid of reality.

Romney’s running against McCain for the title of King of the RINOs. Let’s see who can be the bigger backstabbing socialist republican.

"Lord help us if this clown gets the nomination."

If he does I am sitting out the election. I held my nose for McCain but that's the last time for me. The RNC can go F'themselves.

Obama minions will be crashing pubbie primaries just to ensure Mittens nomination. Perfect cover for Obamacare.

Unfortunately there are many supports on FR for this guy, very disappointing. And if they are on FR they are out in the country.

Three weeks ago he was talking about how to repeal it.

Pathetic.

Oh McCain is the biggest backstabber. But Romney is the bigger moron because he actually thinks he’s a conservative.

He can try to have it both ways... but if Obama starts praising Romney that will be the kiss of death for Romney(probably will do) .

Maybe Romney can take credit for the Stupak Obama-care taxpayer-paid abortions too :)

After this comment, a friend of Mitt Romney is an avowed enemy of Free Republic.

What say you, Jim, after Mitt is pretty much endorsing ObamaCare?

Viewed Romney the other evening on FNC. Nice fellow, but he just doesn’t get it. Romney and his buddy, America hating POTUS Barack Hussein Obama will first destroy the American medical care system and, following that, he will destroy the American economy. Romney knows not what he will do!!! Obama knows exactly what he is doing and loves it!!! Both of the gents should be flushed down the toilet into forever obscurity. Romney is not the one. Newt is not the one. And....the Rev Jeremiah Wright worshipper, POTUS Barack Hussein Obama is certainly not the one!!!

I don't know. Romney got 92% of the vote in Utah, so they appear to be voting for him just because he is lds or they are not as conservative as they claim.

Mitt has no clue about anything. He seems like a decent man, especially compared to slimy McCain, but Romney is totally clueless. Buh Bye Myth Romney.

Romney is dead man walk’n.

He and the GOP establishment just haven’t checked for a pulse yet.

ObamaCare ended his credible bid for President. If they hand him the nomination they commit suicide and Obama gets 8 years.

The trick to knowing what Romney really thinks is to listen to what he says when he’s talking to liberals. Those are the words that actually match his record.

Don’t believe a word he says otherwise.

Who's a friend of MR?

Did you actually read my comment?

I said: Unfortunately there are many supports on FR for this guy, very disappointing. And if they are on FR they are out in the country.

Where in that statement do you get the notion that I support Romney?

He’s one more RINO I won’t vote for. If the R.P. wants to survive, it needs to change it’s course.

As far as I am concerned, the Tea Party speaks for me.

The RNC mouthpiece is an embarrassment to our cause.

If the party can’t field candidates who won’t support our internal or external enemies, then it has ceased to be a viable entity.

It’s really too bad. What a waste of an education and wealth.

He was born into a good family for the most part.

Somewhere along the way, he got shanghaied/recruited to go a different way... a Third Way.

Well, he's an obamaclone and he's starting out the same way obama did...full of ARROGANCE.

As I think back, I don't remember at what point in the last two years that healthcare became a National crisis.

Probably because it was obama-created to have another entitlement to trade for votes.

Romney did the same thing...vote for Romney and you get White Obama. Look how his boy sidekick - Scott Brown - fooled us all...and Romney is his mentor.

It seems like Romney is a decent family man but he is a clueless idiot and a liberal. Just go away Mitt. Even decent Repubs like Santorum and Pataki are light years better than Romney.

If enough Democrats cross over during primaries, we could get Romney. He would be their favorite choice. Maybe that’s his play. Worked for Comrade Juan McNuts.
