Mitt Romney has a well-earned reputation as a flip-flopper, having been on both sides of every major issue in American politics in the last twenty years, but up to now people have been willing to extend Romney the benefit of the doubt as to whether his policy shifts were sincere or just the prevarications of a very smooth liar. To their shock and horror, Virginia conservatives have suddenly awakened to the reality that Mitt Romney is a profoundly dishonest man who will say anything to get elected--and he is all but guaranteed to win the lion's share of Virginia's delegates in today's Super Tuesday primary. Their anguish is palpable:
And worse, while Romney is going around the country and telling people in the debates that RomneyCare was a solution only for Massachusetts and was not intended to be a model for the country, his own words in an OpEd make him a liar.That quote is from stalwart conservative Tom White, the author of the blog "Virginia Right!" Only now, when it is far too late to do anything about it, are the scales beginning to drop from Republican eyes:
In a 2009 OpEd appearing in USA Today that is being scrubbed from the internet as fast as possible (Click the link here to see for yourself) Romney not only advocates the Insurance Mandate that most feel is unconstitutional, but was also telling everyone that would listen that Obama should use RomneyCare as a model for ObamaCare.
There is no such thing as Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny or a Massachusetts Conservative.Romney has all but sewn up the Republican nomination and today he will add most of Virginia's delegates to his win column, dragging the Republican Party of Virginia into his web of deception.
Mitt Romney will say anything to get elected. He has become quite comfortable telling Americans that he never intended RomneyCare to be a model for the country, but the facts show this is simply not true. He was proud of the Massachusetts takeover of Health Care and advocated for the same thing for America. He failed to say he was wrong on RomneyCare and has embraced it as a state only solution, after clearly calling for RomneyCare to be the model for ObamaCare.
There is no such thing as "Obamacare"--the watered down healthcare reform bill was in fact, Romneycare, plain and simple: see for yourselves . . .
