It’s hard to know for sure what he means by ”I’ll take it”. Can someone please make him stop?
At a Univision forum last night in Florida, Mitt Romney was in part asked (through an interpreter), “If you’re elected president, will you repeal all of Obamacare, or just change parts of it? Which parts would you change?”
“Well, first of all, I would repeal all of Obamacare [enthusiastic cheers] and replace it [waiting for cheers to die down]…and replace it…with I think the kinds of reforms we really need.”
So far, so good — perfect, really. Then, immediately thereafter, he added:
“And I have experience in health care reform. Now and then, the president says I’m the grandfather of Obamacare. I don’t think he meant that as a compliment, but I’ll take it. This was during my primary. We thought it might not be helpful.”
Good grief. It’s still not helpful. Moreover (and this really should go without saying), he shouldn’t take it as a compliment.
I’m sure this latest “Mitticism” will rally that conservative base, heh. Maybe Mitt’s brain trust in Boston should rethink their latest campaign “rescue plan” of having Mitt make more public appearances. They have plenty of money, we’re told. How much can a muzzle cost?
