Romney is a smooth talker, but what did he actually accomplish as governor of Massachusetts, compared to what Gingrich accomplished as speaker of the House? When you don't accomplish much, you don't ruffle many feathers. But is that what we want?Yup! Romney is a moderate who is already trying to placate the left and "play to the middle."
Massachusetts health care premiums are the highest in the nation. The program is predictably blowing a hole in the state budget ($47 million over budget in fiscal year 2010) and is only going to continue to get worse.
Meanwhile Romney repeatedly doubles down on his indefensible Massachusetts health care plan. How can Romney claim that the health care mandate works on a state level, but the same program is terrible on a national level? You can't do both with integrity! Either the plan works or it doesn't.
Watch the video below. When Romney sees that he is losing the argument on facts, he plays the "emotional anecdotal story" canard so loved by the left.
I'm hoping that Bachmann or Santorum can make a hard run at the nomination in these final days, but if they do not, Gingrich 2012!
