Birthplace of Independent Conservatism
June 2'nd 2011, Mitt Romney shared the following thought on the Sean Hannity show.
Romney's statement leaves no room for doubt. He is on the record, he will repeal ObamaCare if elected.
As the full interview is made available it will be posted here at Rational Nation USA.
There were certainly things that a conservative can find issue with in the full interview. Certainly he will need to explain his MA. RomneyCare with clarity, and how it differs from ObamaCare, as well as his reasons for supporting mandates in MA. Even considering this Romney's solid and clear statement with respect to repealing ObamaCare if elected is most assuredly not one of them.
Pretty much Republican boilerplate issues. Romney continues to present himself as a RINO that will likely represent the old Rockefeller wing of the party.
Notice that while acknowledging waste in military spending he would cut the waste yet continue to to spend those saved dollars on the military. This Simply means that under a Romney administration the MIC would continue to grow and likely consume a larger share of the budget that it does now.
Romney also states he likes the Ryan plan, yet without stating specifics. He has said it isn't his plan which knowing the liberal Romney from Mass. really means he would gut the Ryan plan to soften it up with RINO progressivism.
At least Romney was firm on his support for Isreal and correct in that the Obamanator threw Israel under the bus.
It's early yet, but I'm betting the democrats are excited about the possibility of Romney eventually getting the republican nomination. It likely insures an Obama 2012 victory. Or if not at least they would be dealing with Obama light, something they could live with.
