Quote Of The Day

“We are holding an Olympic Games in one of the busiest, most active, bustling cities anywhere in the world. Of course it’s easier if you hold an Olympic games in the middle of nowhere.” – Prime Minister David Cameron in response to Mitt Romney questioning Britain’s readiness to host the Olympics

Burn, baby, burn.

Mitt Romney Really Struggling To Unhoist Himself From That Health Care Petard

The whole Romneycare thing is proving to be a rather large millstone around Mittens Kittens’ neck. You can smell the desperation and pandering through your screen in Mitt Romney’s latest op-ed bashing the Affordable Care Act:

If I am elected president, I will issue on my first day in office an executive order paving the way for waivers from ObamaCare for all 50 states. Subsequently, I will call on Congress to fully repeal ObamaCare.

And please, please, Republican voters, whatever you do, don’t notice that ‘ObamaCare’ is Romneycare writ large.

Incidentally, do you remember what Obama’s ‘first day in office’ executive orders were? To end torture and close Gitmo. In other words, Obama’s priority was to successfully restore human rights by ending torture and attempting to do the same with Gitmo, and Romney would try and empower states to take away a basic human right. The contrast is stark.
