Mittens and Barrack

Barrack giving Mitt props for his instituting of RomneyCare in Massachusetts when Mitt was governor. Barrack's remarks as reported by CNN Politics below.
"I know that many of you have asked for flexibility for your states under this law," Obama said during a speech to a governors meeting at the White House. "In fact, I agree with Mitt Romney, who recently said he's proud of what he accomplished on health care by giving states the power to determine their own health care solutions. He's right."

Hmm, sounds like they could be campaigning together on the same ticket doesn't it. Here's Mittens response.
"We addressed a problem in Massachusetts that was designed to solve problems for the people of Massachusetts," he said recently. "But it is wrong and unconstitutional to take what is designed for one state and say we are going to apply that in every state."

And to that the Barrack team had this.
... "One of the best things [Romney] did was to be the coauthor of our health care reform, which has been a model for national health care reform."

Should be an interesting election cycle. The rest of the story.

By way of clarification. Of course we have the primary season, and the nominating conventions following. So, now is the time to be thinking about RINO season in republican politics. Hopefuly everyone is hearing the call.

But then again, as the "mainstream" democrats and the "mainstream" republicans begin to look more and more alike perhaps we will be considering a "new style" of politics in the foreseeable future. A split ticket at the national level. Now wouldn't that be fitting in a time of increased polarization and anxiety?

Hey, just a thought. The box may be getting bigger. More later.
