I consider Obama Care to be one of the biggest infringements on individual rights - not to mention one of our costliest entitlements - since the New Deal. I believe it needs to be repealed. Not tinkered with, not updated, not tweaked. Repealed. That's the source of my greatest concern about Romney. As the architect of a similar program in Massachusetts, which also features an individual mandate - and of which Romney remains obstinately supportive - what standing will he have to debate the issue with Obama? One wonders if he will even bring the subject up, since it apparently isn't worth getting angry about.
How frustrating it is that genuinely conservative presidential aspirants, for whatever reason, can't seem to gain traction, while this moderate Ken doll leads the rapidly diminishing pack. If conservatives can't advance their cause in a presidential term that has seen the utter folly of liberalism brought to disastrous fruition across the board - and by its most arrogant, overhyped and inept exponent - what hope will we have if we ever again see a Democrat who is even marginally less left-wing than the current occupant of the White House?
I understand the overarching need to unseat Obama. What I don't understand is why so many ostensibly conservative people think that a political chameleon like Romney represents our best hope.
Update: Looking ahead, this is my guy.
