From the story:

"Beyond that, had President Obama actually learned the lessons of Massachusetts health care, millions of Americans would not lose the insurance they were promised they could keep, millions more would not see their premiums skyrocket, and the installation of the program would not have been a frustrating embarrassment," Romney said. "Health reform is best crafted by states with bipartisan support and input from its employers, as we did, without raising taxes, and by carefully phasing it in to avoid the type of disruptions we are seeing nationally."
----------
Now we see why the democrats ruined the public school system. Nobody with more than an ounce of working grey matter could choose a fascist stooge like Obama over a sucessful businessman like Romney.

We would not be going thru the debacles of the GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN and the HEALTHCARE Fiasco with Romney in the WH.

All Obama is doing by taking his rant to Boston today, is reminding Americans that they really made a horrible mistake when they settled for Obama's incompetence over an accomplished leader..... Romney.
A very sad day for America.

Romney Care is not only different than Obama Care it still really isn't the cost saver you might think it is.

Romeny Care was a 60 some odd page bill compared to 900 plus page Obama Care bill. Romney Care was enacted in a gentrified state with some of the highest tax rates in the nation and balanced budget. Romney Care spurred in increase in Medicaid enrollment. So in a gentrified/high tax state tax payers nationwide have been paying for Romney Care will now have to pay for Obama Care.

Romney Care has lead to admendments to the original bill/Mass medical regulation stating that nurses and physicians assistants can be PRIMARY care givers.

Is Romney Care really "a" success?

He may be a successful businessman but most Americans don't like cowardly draft dodgers!! Cowardice seems to run in the family since none of his sons has served. And then there's that membership in a cult!!

Romney the RINO. He's partially the reason we are stuck with OdumboCare. He also helped give us the most incompetent President since Carter and the most corrupt since Nixon... and all-in-one deal!

RINO's are idiots who think they can win a "free sh*t give-away" contest with the Democrats. That's like a 300 lb fat girl trying to get more sexual innuendos than the real hotties at Hooters.

Hello Every One, My Name is Mrs Potter Hughes i live in USA and life is worth living comfortably for me and my family now and i really have never seen goodness shown to me this much in my life as i am a struggling mum with three kids and i have been going through a serious problem as my son encountered a terrible accident last week, and the doctors states that he needs to undergo a delicate surgery for him to be able to walk again, and i could not afford the bill for his surgery then i went to the bank for a loan and they turned me down stating that i have no credit card, from there i ran to my father and he was not able to help. Later on when i was browsing through yahoo answers, i came across a loan lender Mr James Cooper who provides loans at an affordable interest rate and i have been hearing about so many scams on the internet but at this my desperate situation, i had no choice than to give it an attempt and surprisingly it was all like a dream, i received a loan of $200,000 USD and i payed for my son's surgery and thank GOD today he is okay and can walk and is working and the burden is no longer so much on me any more and we can feed well and my family is happy today and i said to my self that i will shout aloud to the world of the wonders of GOD to me through this GOD fearing lender Mr James Cooper and i will advise anyone in genuine and serious need of loan to contact this GOD fearing man via email: cooper.firm20@gmail.com and i want you all to pray for this Man for me. THANKS Mrs Potter Hughes

Accomplished leader?

Exactly which Romney are you talking about… he took every side of every issue and ‘We the People’ came out in record numbers to re-elect the President who single-handedly found and killed Osama bin Laden (you don’t get more accomplished than that)… but it is amusingly pathetic for tea-bagging fools like you to still be crying over losing to Obama almost a year later.

Get over it; YOU LOST… STFU and deal with it, losers, LOL!

Romney was not a draft dodger. He, like Bill Clinton entered the first draft lottery in 1969. As it happened, BOTH had very high draft numbers.

As someone who was drafted into the army in 1969, before the lottery, I am very familiar with that time period. Prior to 1965, Vietnam was not a concern for young men as ONLY volunteers were there in small numbers.

That ALL changed after the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, with passed OVERWHELMINGLY in Both Houses of Congress, and the country was solidly behind LBJ. As time went on and causalties mounted, the anti-war movement gathered strength and by 1968, less than 4-years after a landslide victory, LBJ was a political Pariah.

MANY who initially supported the War had changed their minds and the prospect of an endless war impacted everyone, and that had to include Romney and B. Clinton. But BOTH entered the draft and BOTH continued their education after they were no longer in danger of being drafted, indicating to me that they were serious students and had not been going to college to avoid service.

Romney did make mistakes in his campaign, BUT he got destroyed by Hurricane Sandy and the MASSIVE pro-Obama propaganda by the MSM surrounding that storm------even though, on performance, Rudi Gulliani gave Obama an F- grade.

Nixon Corrupt!? Based on Watergate in which personal data was stolen from the DNC at the Watergate Hotel. Then the answer is yes, that is corrupt. How is it then, that Obama and the NSA are stealing private data from MILLIONS around the Globe with very little complaint from the MSM. Logically, it follows that, using Watergate as a yardstick, Obama is far, far more corrupt then Nixon.

Why not call it what it is... Obamacare = Romneycare = Obomneycare?

Like with John McCain four years before the Republican establishment chose the candidate who agreed most with Barack Obama.

Not a dime's worth of difference.

http://www.landscaper.net/draft.htm#How 's your "Luck of the Draw"?

Bill Clinton was born Aug 19, 1946----Draft number 311

Mitt Romney was born March 12, 1947---Draft number 300

Bill Clinton did oppose the war by 1969, as the letter he wrote to
Colonel Holmes makes clear. But, he did enter the draft. From that letter.

"I decided to accept the draft in spite of my beliefs for one reason: to maintain my political viability within the system."

Good point-----Bill Clinton is a War Criminal for backing the pro-Nazi Islamists in Bosnia-Herzegovina.



Yes, it was many Bosnia Muslims that were killed in the suicide mission of protecting Hitler's Bunker during the fall of Berlin.

Since it was the International Banksters that put Clinton in the WH and it was those same International Bankster ties that supported the Hitler War Machine, it follows that Clinton was just taking BANKSTER orders when he bombed the Serbs.

I, for one, thought Romney ran a solid campaign. I did see flaws BUT events conspired against him including TWO Hurricanes, one during the Republican National Convention and Hurricane Sandy, happening during the last week of the campaign.

A Presidential exit poll revealed the Political Damage "Sandy" caused Romney.

http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2012/11/06/1...
-the-election/

Twenty-six percent of those polled said Obama’s broadly praised response was an important factor, and 15 percent
— about one in six voters — said it was the most important factor in their vote:

IMPORTANCE OF OBAMA’S HURRICANE RESPONSE

Most important factor 15%

Important factor 26

Minor/not a factor 55
