    Other than the crappy economy - he didnt have an issue to run on.

    Now he does - with the outrage over the Supreme Court decision on theindividual mandate.

    2.8 mil in 20 hours yisstidy. Some folks put their money where their mouth was. Betcha it was all small donors, too. No Citizens United derivatives here, lots of good, honest, ordinary folks felt the pain, anger, and frustration after long expecting Obamacare to go the way of the Dodo Bird, only to find out the Liar In Chief had been very, very busy indeed handing them a new tax, their CommieCare Tax.
    Of course, the folks over at the DNC had a different take on the decision.
    "The Court cannot save the people from the results of their political decisions" meaning when you elect a Commie to office, this is what you need to expect.

    You think a winning strategy is to run on repealing a law that was passed with a majority of Congress and found constitutional by the SCOTUS and that currently helps millions get access to health care?

    Good luck with that.

    Romney doesn't have a leg to stand on anymore...

    he said the difference between Romneycare and Obamacare was that his, at the state level was constitutional...well, that's not true....the fed is constitutional.

    His Romneycare had a penalty for not buying in to insurance as well...so Romney supported what you all are calling a tax increase.

    On top of that, Romney argued before the people of Massachusetts that it was ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY to have the mandate and penalty(tax) in order for Romneycare to work...

    He also said that ALL PEOPLE need to own up to their responsibility and purchase health care coverage....he called it their responsibility and fined the ones who did not participate....

    ...and is shown that the American people hate, by a nearly 2:1 margin, in poll after poll after poll?

    Good luck with that.

    He's talking about the majority of Congress. He means the Dems. Not one single Rep vote on that baby.

    The bill that folks were jamming the phone lines to DC to stop. He's talking about that one.

    yep. Good luck is right.

    Way ta go Roberts.

    Could Roberts thinking be the side effect of the meds he takes?? Michael Savage thinks so.

    Regardless, Romney is a shoe-in because of that vote. :eusa_clap: The independents are very unhappy, now.

    From Michael Savage:

    "Let's talk about Roberts. I'm going to tell you something that you're not going to hear anywhere else, that you must pay attention to. It's well known that Roberts, unfortunately for him, has suffered from epileptic seizures.

    Therefore he has been on medication. Therefore neurologists will tell you that medication used for seizure disorders, such as epilepsy, can introduce mental slowing, forgetfulness and other cognitive problems. And if you look at Roberts' writings you can see the cognitive dissociation in what he is saying," Michael Savage said on his radio program this evening."
