    That is what Joe Scarborough just said on air after reading romney's quotes urging the president to adopt an individual mandate:

    from that bastion of liberal thought, the National Review:

    Romney Urged Obama to Adopt the Individual Health-Care Mandate - By Andrew C. McCarthy - The Corner - National Review Online

    This... on top of George Will lambasting his party for being afraid of Rush Limbaugh, saying "using the salad fork for your entrée." is inappropriate... and condemning rush for his comments of last week about sandra fluke.

    i'm not the one saying these things. and you guys just keep making it easier and easier.

    How did they get to this point? I believe the Teaparty had and has so much to do with it. Perhaps the real conservatives will have the courage to bring the flock back home.

    Except, Romney didn't say that.

    Here's a hint. When a writer has to chop up a quote into about 5 pieces and place his intrepretations in as he goes along, he is probably putting words in somebody's mouth.

    Romney was discussing the need to provide incentive to get people to buy their own insurance, and pointed out that Mass. used tax penalty, but he also mentioned tax credits as others have used.

    This will be a moot issue anyways, as soon as those conservative Supremes piss all over Obamacare in a couple of months.

    Swing and miss.

    Parties rise, parties fall. It's evolution. Aligning yourself with these parties is done at your own risk. "Your" in the general sense, not "you" personally.

    It's typical left wing media lies.... this from the very people who throw a hissy fit about people like Breitbart. It would be funny if it wasn't so damned pathetic.

    It seems they have all given up and are allowing the seedier among them to call the shots.

    Get a clue, mo chara. Dig out Romney's actual words and, yet again, you will find that your media 'sources' misinformed you.

    Yeah, those Tea Party Sons of Bitches, those Tea Party terrorists should just go straight to Hell and let the REAL conservatives screw up the GOP.

    All what conservative Supremes? YOu are really counting on Kennedy to strike it down?

    Here's the ugly little secret about ObamaCare. Big Insurance wants it. And what Big Insurance wants, big Insurance gets.

    People like Mitch McConnell tried to fight their tactics for awhile but even Conservatives like him have rolled over. Look at your candidates, nobody respects them.
