Don’t Pick Mitt Romney As Your Child’s Godfather

We all knew that the former governor of Massachusetts had flirted with pro-choice views — but not to this extent.

In an interview with Hugh Hewitt today, Mitt Romney fielded what must have been the seven millionth question about his connection to Obamacare. Why not take a swing? Mitt has a multi-million dollar campaign, a team of sharp advisers, and hours upon hours of rehearsed answers, policy platforms, soundbites, and media spin in the bag. It's the same question he's been getting every other day for the past two years. What could be the harm? 

Hewitt: Yesterday, the president’s campaign manager said that you are the godfather of Obamacare ... if that’s who you are, can you make the Democrats an offer they can’t refuse to repeal it?

Romney: (laughing) That’s a great idea. We counted, by the way, that Mr. Plouffe is the Rumpelstiltskin of trying to turn straw into gold. He will not be successful. I can tell you one thing. If I’m the godfather of this thing, then it gives me the right to kill it.

The nation's most honest politician strikes again.
