Romney: Unconscionable Hypocrisy

Mitt Romney says that the passage of healthcare reform legislation represents an "unconscionable abuse of power." Romney, however, promoted and endorsed a remarkably similar plan while he was the governor of Massachusetts.

Romney is clearly trying to position himself for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012. In order to do so, he has decided to condemn the healthcare legislation, even though the national plan and the Massachusetts plan he endorsed share many central components. 

I doubt that Republicans will allow Romney to remake his image. They already ridicule the Massachusetts plan as "RomneyCare."  He will likely lose in 2012 because of his "liberal" past.

"An unconscionable abuse of power." This, from the same folks who cheered on people like John Yoo and Dick Cheney and David Addington when they said the POTUS has unlimited power to violate the Constitution in the name of national security.

The hypocrisy never ends.

Kathy: isn't it ironic....Also - Obama campaigned to reform healthcare. How is delivering that promise, for which he was elected, an abuse of power? Romney is toast.
