Dime Store Mannequins Say The Darndest Things.

From Benjamin Bell in the Boston Herald:

Former Gov. Mitt Romney seemed to be in a state of hysteria Monday - a day before President Obama signed legislation that will usher in sweeping reforms of the nation’s health care system. In a statement on the House passage of the health care bill, Romney excoriated Obama, saying “America has just witnessed an unconscionable abuse of power. President Obama has betrayed his oath to the nation.”
But behind those caustic words is of course a man who, himself signed a universal health care bill into law for this great state. In the coming months and years, Romney is bound to assert that the two plans are completely different - but that is a losing strategy. The American attention span is getting smaller not larger. We communicate in 140 characters now. Engaging in a debate over the intricacies of the different types of universal health care plans is not something people want to do. So the reality is this: Romney supported universal health care in Massachusetts and he looks duplicitous bashing Obama’s plan when his plan was quite similar.

Mitt's a hypocrite? Huh. Must be runnin' for somethin'...

BeltwayBlips: vote it up!
