    is bullshit.

    Someone smart tell us what kind of logical fallacy it is.

    Hey, don't drink and drive, it's bad. Well, you drank and drove one time.

    So fucking what? Drinking and driving is still bad.

    American politics is idiotic.

    What a great example. They did it so we should do it do. I saw a guy the other day complaining about not being able to get a job. The waist band of his pants was down aboiut his butt and his believe is that the other do it too so I will also. It just does corelate.

    What Romney did was get told by the people of Massachusettes that they wanted a mandated health plan. His job at that point was to create one. He did that. It works for Massachusettes because they only had 8% uninsured. Romney's point is that the same plan that is successful in Massachusettes wouldn't work everywhere. It wouldn't work in Arizona that has a very high percentage of uninsured illegals. It wouldn't work in California with a 20% unemployment rate. If the people of MA had said that they didn't want a mandated insurance plan, Romney would never have created one.

    At least 60% of Americans, some say as high as 75% of Americans don't want the federal plan and especially don't like obama's plan. obama does it anyway because he alone knows what's best for us.

    You're either a. Not smart or b. being coy.

    I'm talking about the logical fallacy of "you did it too".

    Like a killer can't tell other people that killing is wrong cause he did too.

    There is a name for this fallacy. What is it?

    No logical falacy

    Romney is attacking Obamacare as unnecessary and unwarranted at he same time he passed a similar bill.

    The logic is called hypocrisy

    Calling a Bill passed for a tiny state with a Tiny Population, by a State Government, the similar to a Bill that Effects 1/6th the US economy, and every Person living in the Country, passed by the Federal Government. Is also a Fallacy.

    You guys like to Keep pointing out Obama Care was Modeled on Romney Care, but you seem to not want to look at how much Romney Care is Costing that State, and how Those Costs continue to Spiral out of control.

    lol

    It's not hypocrisy. Nice twist.

    There is a logical fallacy with argument:

    A. Zweebles are evil.
    B. Zoons are evil too.

    So therefore...

    C. Zweebles are not evil.

    Some believe Romney when he talks about repeal. He means by 'repeal' let's do it my way.
