    I literally laughed out loud.

    Romney reminded me of myself....all laid back walking around munching on food in a crowd of people saying hi......Im not a big Romney guy but I really liked this.

    Not referring to Romney per se here, but after watching the vid I'm just thankful we - both parties - have folks willing to put themselves through the grind it sometimes takes just to get a party's nomination, which is then followed by even more grinding for the general election. No way on earth I'd put myself and my family through months and months of that stuff.

    Well, Plymco, since you ane Mitt are practically doppelgangers, I wonder what you think about this: he has said that the first thing he would do as President, is to give every state a waiver from ObamaCare....

    ...think he would keep his word?

    Pretty important to me, as there is a good chance the Supremes may not find it unconstitutional, and by the time a Republican Congress gets around to it, it might be 2014...

    I think he would keep his word. In his own words he has said that Romneycare was done the right way (on the state level within the confines of the restrictions of power our state constitution and the federal constitution put on governance) while obamacare was done the wrong way (on the federal level in a way that exceeds the power granted to the federal govt in the constitution). (i'll try and find a vid or text for you and edit it in...found it, he says it right at the beginning)



    THE FULL INTERVIEW
    I think he will try and stop it with waivers.

    Romneycare, now DevaulCare as devaul patrick has changed it up a bit, is not really any better or worse than medicare/medicade. I still find it wrong that the state can fine me if I dont have it but that doesn't violate our state constitution (darn it!)

    Acting normal is news now?!?! I guess he's trying to distance himself from the distinctly abnormal Palin/Perry/Santorum/Bachmann/Pawlenty axis. :lol::lol::lol:

    What exactly is "normal" anyway?

    Being born from a couple of communist sympathizers who met in Russian class? Writing a book admiting you want half of your heritage expunged from your blood? Befriending a former commu-terrorist within your inner Marxist circle?

    We've already elected one of the most abnormal people to be President.
