    Romney disagrees with Obama and agrees with Obama? How can that be? Did Chief Justice Roberts brainwash Romney?

    Is Romney the brainwashed candidate like his pa was back in the 1968 Presidential campaign?

    George W. Romney - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Romney stated: "When I came back from Viet Nam [in November 1965], I'd just had the greatest brainwashing that anybody can get."

    Questions were occasionally asked about Romney's eligibility to run for President owing to his birth in Mexico, given the ambiguity in the United States Constitution over the phrase "natural-born citizen".

    We even have USMB House Imbecile, Quantum Windbag, writing "First, the conservative mandate was quite a bit different than the Obama mandate."

    Wanna bet the Heritage Foundations mandate, the Romneycare mandate, and the Obamacare mandate have more in common than they don't?

    "The Supreme Court left President Obama with two choices: the federal individual mandate in Obamacare is either a constitutional tax or an unconstitutional penalty. Governor Romney thinks it is an unconstitutional penalty. What is President Obama’s position: is his federal mandate unconstitutional or is it a tax?"

    Political campaign statement(s).

    In the mandate, the shared responsibility payment required of people who choose not to purchase health insurance, was never ruled unConstitutional. That's just spin. The penalty was ruled a tax by another name. The Penalty v Tax argument is bogus.

    I need to apologize to you. I had thought you had poor critical thinking skills. Now I know you had none. :redface:


    Romney spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg reinforced this point to ABC News after Fehrnstrom’s MSNBC appearance: “The Supreme Court left President Obama with two choices: the federal individual mandate in Obamacare is either a constitutional tax or an unconstitutional penalty. Governor Romney thinks it is an unconstitutional penalty. What is President Obama’s position: is his federal mandate unconstitutional, or is it a tax?”
