    The west is certainly kicking the bucket and all at once.

    America just kicked itself with Obamacare
    Australia will kick itself this coming sunday with a new Carbon Tax thanks to Al Gores slide show.
    Europe has been kicking itself for the past few years.

    This could be a defining moment for Gov Romney.

      What a missed opportunity.

    • http://poorrichardsnews.com Poor Richard

      Why is Romney saying we need to keep the pre-existing condition coverage?!?? Doesn’t he realize this is the reason the individual mandate exists? The mandate is the funding mechanism for pre-existing condition coverage!! Come on!

  • http://www.facebook.com/randall.tharpe.9 Randall Tharpe

    Yawn. Pass the milquetoast.

    • Chris Lasota

      Amen. That response was pathetic. Not a word about liberty or freedom. No passion. Absolutly pathetic.

      • freenca

        “No passion”, exactly Chris. This speech leaves me cold. It should have been more expressive. It certainly does not convey the emotion that most here would hold forth at this moment!

  • keyesforpres

    Romney, overturn it and replace it with one line: We can buy health insurance across state lines. That would fall under the Commerce Clause and that is the only authority the Congress has in our medical decisions.

  • scrubjay

    Get out and vote for Romney.

    That was good and short, not inspiring, but at least he used the words “liberal agenda”

    • Guest1776rcp

      Its the progressives agenda and Romney is a progressive. Figure it out.

      • NHConservative0221

        Face it the only chance we have to get rid of Obamacare is to elect Romney.

        when are you, SDee, MJS finally going to figure that out??

        • Guest1776rcp

          Read my lips:

          Romney says he’ll issue an EO to stop O-Care’s implementation out of one side of his mouth but assures he’ll be a President that will follow the Law out of the other. O-Care is “the Law” now so Romney is either a liar or admitting he’ll abuse his power “the right way” which means he’s RINO all the way.

          Romney will call the “O-Tax” a “fee” as he implements the LAW.

          • NHConservative0221

            The ACA allows the use of an EO, so Romney has the power to do so.

            Also, if we get a repeal obamacare bill on Romney’s desk do you really think he won’t sign it??

            Go bury your head in the sand and do nothing to defeat Maobama. You can tell you kids with the country hanging in the balance all you did was whine like a baby!

            • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E4C65QOIQ4XH67F6MEHWTXGODY Alan

              Sorry, but I have my head screwed on straight . You can always tell a Romneybot when you hear it.

              • NHConservative0221

                Yeah I’m a real rombot, just like Levin, Beck, Rush, and Sarah Palin.

                Loser!!

                • Rightstuff1

                  I don’t think your a Romneybot. I know I’m not, having supported Newt all the way. But Romney or Obama is a choice that I cannot not make. It will be Romney but I’m not sanguine. Obama is waging such a successful campaign of constitutional and economic destruction we might never recover. Romney is whats on offer, I don’t have to like it but its all we have got.

        • sDee

          There is a better chance with Romney than without him but that is all.

          When are you going to finally figure out that whatever Romney does, he will continue to nationalize the private healthcare industry – perhaps not via Obamacare but he will do it. He his landmark legislation as governor was a takeover of private insurance thorough regulatory control. He has never said he would return healthcare to the free market.

          What the man is not saying is far more important than what he is saying.

          • NHConservative0221

            When are you going to pull your head out of your backside?

            ROmney has said all along that Romneycare was right for MA, NOT for the entire country. He’s not going to push that on us against our will, especially after what’s happened now.

            And since you admitted there’s a better chance at repealing obamacare and saving the country with Romney, then you support him!

            Enough whining. The primary is OVER. Either try to save the country or become a quitter!

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E4C65QOIQ4XH67F6MEHWTXGODY Alan

          From the author of RomneyCare we have to get rid of Obama? That makes a lot of sense, ROFL! Romney is toast.

          • NHConservative0221

            Yes, he’s made his WHOLE campaign about repealing obamacare!!

            What’s your answer to sit back and let maobama get reelected??? Genius!!!

  • usajingoist

    Underwhelmed! I wanted Mitt too look at the camera and reassure us, not to worry, this will not stand….

  • detectivedick

    Why does Romney always say if I am President? Plus he never asks for people to vote for him. A good salesman never uses the words “if”, Romney needs to use the words “when I am elected President”. Also, a salesman will never close the deal unless he or she asks the question, “do you want to purchase this” or “can I write this order for you”. Romney may be a nice guy but he has to get some energy, animation and better wording, Where is the(his)beef?

    • klaffner

      I actually hate the phrase “when I am elected president” Maybe it is because I am a salesman. I prefer the deferential way Romney does it. I do agree that he needs to ask for the vote. AS in ask for the order. He does do that in the right circumstance. His comment today is about right. Don’t go over the top. Just say it needs to go.

      • detectivedick

        I can’t imagine Romney ever going over the top. I think I will take walk now.

    • FutureOnePercent

      I think “when I am elected President” takes the ball out of the voter’s court as if it’s already a done deal and he can get by without them.

      “If I am elected President” lays the responsibility of the future squarely on the shoulders of the listener, which to me creates the urgency to go to the polls.

      Just my two cents, I’m no psychologist haha.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E4C65QOIQ4XH67F6MEHWTXGODY Alan

      Because he knows he is TOAST at the convention! He doesn’t have the delegates to win. I know what I’m talking about.

      • Rightstuff1

        Alan I’m not a gambling man. Never gambled in my life but I will wager a gentleman’s bet with you that he has all the delegates he needs. If you are right I will gladly take off my hat and bow theatrically. Similarly if you are wrong you will remove the hat and bow in my general direction.

        See you back here in August.

  • RosiesSeeingRed

    He needed to fire up his base today. Epic FAIL.

    • NHConservative0221

      What’s your answer? Sit at home and let Maobama get reelected?

      • RosiesSeeingRed

        I never said I was going to stay home. I just said he failed to fire up the base today. I’m frustrated enough (like everyone else here today)… shoot me for hoping Romney would rise to the occasion and rile the troops.

        Sure, I’m going to vote against Obama, and his healthcare bill, and his fascist ways. But Romney had a chance to get people to go out in droves to vote for HIM, and I would’ve liked to have seen that.

        • NHConservative0221

          Romney is who he is. The primary is over.

          Over $1 million was donated to ROmney today, some including from yours truly not b/c of how great Romney is, but b/c of the dire need to defeat Maobama!

          We need Romney in office if there’s any hope at repealing this garbage.

          And voting is not enough. You need to do whatever you can – donate, knock on doors, make phone calls, write letters, stop spreading negativity here…. etc.

  • opinionatedhermit

    Another moment missed in the history of Mitt Romney….

  • klaffner

    Sad day for America. On the other hand, it is better if the people overturn ObamaCare in the election. They way Roberts justified his vote, makes that easier.

  • http://twitter.com/azcraigrr azcraigrr

    I donated, and will continue to donate throughout the campaign. I’ll also spend my time on Step 2 this evening.

  • FutureOnePercent

    A chance to inspire the patriots of our formerly great nation, and instead we get a speech that comes across like reading the phone book.

    That was your chance Romney, swing and a miss.

    • Rightstuff1

      I will support him but that speech was absolutely crap. I mean come on guy. Where is your heart. Big moments demand, do you hear me, demand invective, impassioned reasoning and exhortations to overcome. I don’t care if it is vituperative but show some soul man. Instead I got a lesson in the economics of why it is bad for the USA. I already knew that.

      Romney – listen up…..go read some Locke or Burke or Paine.

      Dec 23 1776 Thomas Paine

      THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.

  • CG patriot

    Gees Romney, if there’s was ever a time to use a cattle prod on someones posterior, that would be you!!!

  • stage9

    God, he is so plastic.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/ODSG4THJW3SRGYHSQ7KHU32U5Q 3D 81

    Romney is missing the finger pointing and finger thumping on the desk or microphone in his repertoire. When he talks hes got this annoying smile or grin which makes it as if he takes things too easy and relaxed.

    He needs to raise his voice and get authoritative and with vigour. Hes presentation just comes across as too weak. Obama looks directly into the camera (autocue) and his presentation is very direct and serious. People are naturally attracted to leadership which exudes authority and confidence.

    • detectivedick

      The teleprompter was in front of LIAR Obama.

    • Captain_Maynard

      I am not for Romney but even if I WAS, this is what I’d be saying too! Doesn’t he get it?!!! Why the f*** is he grinning?! Who the f*** is he grinning at!!! And why don’t his fans and campaign staff point this out to him and tell him to quit the s**t! Rome’s burning d***he! Quit grinning!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E4C65QOIQ4XH67F6MEHWTXGODY Alan

      Romney didn’t have a teleprompter, Obama had it.

  • Conservative_Hippie

    Number one priority is to repeal Obamacare, but he has me worried with the “Replace” part.

  • Linky1

    After seeing that underwhelming response from Milquetoast Romney and Obama’s gleeful joy at seeing his baby held up, I have to think a Republican “brokered convention.” Robamacare still looms large on the horizon and his use of the word “replace” makes me very worried.

    • NHConservative0221

      Brokered convention?? Seriously?

      Have you no common sense? That would be a disaster. The GOP would be in disarray and it would hand reelection to Maobama.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E4C65QOIQ4XH67F6MEHWTXGODY Alan

      We’ll be having a “brokered” convention.

      • NHConservative0221

        Over $1 million donated to Romney today, including a couple of Franklins from yours truly.

  • steprock

    I like to listen to Laura Ingraham, and it’s amazing to hear all her great ideas of what Mitt Romney ought to say and do. He never does any of it, of course.

    Look, he’s a plastic politician, but he’s the only one we’ve got. I won’t vote FOR him, but I will happily vote AGAINST Obama, so there you have it.

    Mitt wants to write a better version of sweeping health care reform; you can hear it when he talks. Hes’ not against a government rework of health care, he just wants his version of it. Hope I’m wrong!!!

He’s not that kind of a man or that kind of a “Conservative.” Gimme a speech from West or Rubio any day. Both solid speakers, and I really love West (even though I’m a racist Republican, of course)

    Never in the history of this country has there been an election to whether we become socialists or maintain our lives as Americans based on the Constitution. The American people will decide the fate of our nation, as they should, and there will be no excuses for the direction we will ultimately take. If we choose Obama socialism, then life as we know it will cease to exist. It is destroying Europe, it will destroy us, but will be by choice and not by force.

    With the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold Obamacare, the issue now shifts to the elected branches of government and raises this question: Will the intense opposition dissipate or will it lead to a fervent new effort to repeal the liberal health care law?

  • Freempg

    We must seek to replace Romney as the Republican nominee at the convention, and it still can be done no matter what the GOP propagandists claim. How can the party which supposedly represents conservatives reward the grandfather of this obamanation with its nomination. It is utterly insane, especially when he (Romney) has demonstrated himself a pathological liar. The next thing I expect to hear from Romney is, “Read my lips.”

    Doesn’t matter if Romney is elected. Doesn’t matter if Republicans have 90 Senate seats and 450 House seats. It will never get to the President’s desk. The political will to repeal and replace just won’t be there. After all, they are politicians and with the exception of a couple of handfuls, squishes. “Well, the SCOTUS says it’s constitutional, we should just tweak around the edges.” Tell me I’m wrong.

    Bye Bye Miss American Pie…

    • NHConservative0221

      • Retired_Coach

        NHConservative – I REALLY hope that I am. The GOP caves to debt ceilings, reforms in entitlements, etc. So we have a couple of dozen in the House and a handful in the Senate with real spines. I just want an example where our side, in huge numbers, actually went after REAL spending cuts, real reforms. Most of the time I just see the majority of Repubs looking for a compromise instead of standing up for what is right for our country and for it’s citizenry.

        • NHConservative0221

          You can complian about RINO’s all you want but the choice is either ROmney with a chance to repeal Obamacare or doing nothing and getting stuck with it for life.

            Forgive my initial pessimism NH. I admit that I do complain about the Olympia Snows, etc of the GOP. And I admit that I fear that we will not have the political will to do anything about it. I’ve just been a student of history and human behavior for so long that I realize that most of these folks in DC are in it for the appeal of the power and prestige and not for the liberties of the people they represent. That being said, I will not only vote for Romney but I will do phone work for any and every R in any and every race that is committed to repealing this evil piece of legislation. Since I’ve lost my substantial bank account I had in this Obama Economy, I can’t send cash. But I can do phone work and I will. Forgive me for my knee-jerk reaction even though I feel it’s justified. I’m on your team. Once a coach, always a coach and we ALWAYS play to win.

      You are exactly right. Romney still wants to institute healthcare.

      • Linky1

        Let me add my 2 cents worth to this. While I am not eligible to vote, whomever is elected/re-elected affects Canada very much. Be careful what you wish for as Romney is just a carbon copy of Obama and is not the Messiah everyone thinks him to be.

        …”considering Mitt Romney was one of the loudest voices imploring the Obama-Pelosi-Reid regime to adopt the individual mandate – then during the presidential campaign lied by denying it – another of a long litany of lies – this one does not place much stock in that person – not for court nominations – not for repealing Obamacare – not for anything except perhaps for doing as globalist bankster money dictates – much as Obama – and perhaps Roberts.”

        …”Considering all of Mitt Romney’s track record, including his implementation of testbed Agenda 21 in Massachusetts as well as his individual mandate, and his consistent lying, I don’t see bringing myself to vote for a proffered lesser of two enemies of sovereign America.”

        • NHConservative0221

          To say that Romney and Maobama are about the same is intellectually dishonest.

          I don’t believe that Romney will:
          – Try to replace capitalism with communism
          – Have the government take over banks, car companies, and other industries
          – Allow his EPA to set new and arbitrary standards without regard to their impact on people and business, often driving businesses out of our country
          – Try to make energy unaffordable
          – Try to make more people dependent on government
          – Promote abortion
          – Try to curtail freedom of speech for his political opponents
          – Exercise widespread bribes and rewards for supporting his policies, such as loan guarantees and grants for “Green companies” run by his contributors and exemptions from legislation such as Obamacare
          – Support continuation of Obamacare
          – Send our soldiers into combat based on UN agreements without authorization from Congress
          – Offend our country’s traditional allies and bow down and embrace countries wishing to destroy our freedoms
          – Surrender American sovereignty to the UN.
          – Appoint liberal activist judges to the Supreme Court
          – Include known Marxists in his administration
          – Appoint people who have never had a real job to posts in his administration
          – Continue with Trillion $$ deficits for the foreseeable future
          – Encourage Islam and Sharia in the US
          – Try to complete the job of destroying American values, morality, and culture
          – Try to complete the job of destroying the American education system
          – Use the Obama technique of continually lying to the American people
          – Try to bankrupt the United States


          this list could go on and on ….
          Romney was not my first choice. In fact he was way down on my list. I believe he is misguided on some policies and I wish I felt more convinced of his commitment to others.
          Yet, I see little real similarity between Obama and Romney. Romney is an American through and through. He grew up as an American, he has American values, his influences were pro-American. He believes in American exceptionalisnm. He believes in the American people. He believes in freedom. He believes that America is a force for good in the world.

          • Linky1

            You know, we have been down this road before, you and I and I refuse to waste any more time volleying back and forth with you. You are entitled to your opinion, as am I, but I draw the line at being called intellectually dishonest.

            • NHConservative0221

              Truth hurts doesn’t???

              You cannot in good faith make the cause that Romney is anywhere near as bad as Maobama so stop peddling your garbage and trying to influence OUR election!!

              You’re stuck with socialized medicine in canada, I’d rather not be stuck with it here. Plus if Maobama is reelected where are canadians going to go for their health care??

              • CalCoolidge

                And you think voting for Romney is a way not to be stuck with socialized medecine?

  • MrMicawber

    Even Mittens seems bored with his speech.

  • NJK

    I’m firmly behind Mitt Romney now. I’m sad that John Roberts kicked America in the stomah, and sold out to the forces of evil.

    • NHConservative0221

      I now hate Roberts more than Maobama!!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E4C65QOIQ4XH67F6MEHWTXGODY Alan

    It was a pathetic response. Sorry, I cannot get behind this man.

    • NHConservative0221

      thanks for nothing. when it mattered most you decided to do NOTHING to stop Obama!!

      Good job!!

      “Liberty is not some “thing” enshrined in law or protected by august institutions. It is something within us that rises or falls in relation to our willingness to protect it. Sure, it would be nice if others did the heavy-lifting and protected our rights, but that isn’t going to happen. We must do it.
      Obama and the left will get a temporary boost from today’s ruling. The media will argue that the issue is “settled” and urge us to move on. But, we must redouble our efforts to repeal the law. We must educate our friends and neighbors. We must elect representatives this November who are singularly focused on reclaiming our liberties.
      Today, please volunteer your time or donate money to a candidate committed to repeal. If you oppose ObamaCare, then the November elections are critical. There is no cavalry on the horizon. Its on us. Make it so.”

    Well Mitt, replacing this is not the answer, so, WRONG!!!

    HealthCARE is accessible, go to a hospital, there is care there, and ways to pay it, or if you can’t, it is called charity. – FAIL

    Those with “preexisting” conditions have access to health INSURANCE, it just costs more, kindda like when you have a crappy driving record and your car insurance is higher than those who have a good record. It is called the market, learn about it sometime. – EPIC FAIL FOR A BUSINESSMAN

    Outside of DEregulation, what “law” do you think is going to lower the medical costs in any State? – FAIL

    So here is a clue for you Mitt, drop the “replace” monologue, it is not a good route to take. Plus, check and see if you packed you “sack” today……….did I hear crickets chirping in the background?

    • sDee

      That’s pretty much what he said because Romney has always believed governmetn is the answer, even though government is the problem. That is what he believes. That is not what a conservative believes and he does little to hide it.

      Democrats cannot hear a Marxist talking because they want to believe in Obama. Republicans cannot hear a Progressive talking because they want to believe in anything but Obama.

  • kong1967

    Ah, crap Romney !!! There’s a reason why insurance companies don’t pay for claims with pre-existing condidtions. Why would I carry insurance if I can just wait until the day I really need it? Ah, I was diagnosed with cancer today so I’m going to go get insurance and make them pay the bills even though I have been a non-contributor. I had an accident today, so I’m going to buy insurance because my bill is going to be $300,000. As soon as my injuries are treated, I’ll drop my insurance and the insurance companies will pay my bill.

    What is it with these dumb-ass poliiticians that want to sell something that sounds good but kills the entire process of the system?

    • sDee

      Forcing insurance companies to accept uninsured with preexisting conditions is the poison pill for the healthcare industry for exactly the scenario you describe.

      The only system that can handle this is NO INSURANCE – single payer. They all know this. They are not dumb.

      They want to poison the well and they know the American public is stupid enough to go along with it.

      • kong1967

        Well, not all of the public. Not you and I and the rest of us here. Hopefully there’s enough of us smart enough to know what’s coming down the pike, view at as being bad, and destroy it.

        Are you having trouble with your “like” button? Mine isn’t working….I just get the busy signal.

    • NHConservative0221

      That upset me too, I was yelling at the tv.

      At this point all we can do is elect Romney and hold his feet to the fire!

      • kong1967

        Yeah, and take comfort in the fact that he can’t pass anything a conservative Congress wont’ give him to sign.

        • NHConservative0221

          The bottom line is if people are intellectually honest that they realize that romney will sign a repeal bill!

          The only way to repeal this garbage is to get control of the House, Senate, and Presidency!

          • kong1967

            Exactly, and Romney would be committing political suicide if he didn’t sign a repeal bill. He is running on it, so I think it’s pretty safe to say he will sign it immediately….unless there are provisions he wants to keep and he sends it back telling them to leave certain things out. That’s the only hold up I see, and hopefully that doesn’t happen, either.

  • Ron Polland

    I’ve seen mannequins more animated than Mittens. He sounds like Memory Foam with Alzheimers.

    Help, Newt! We need you!

    • stage9

      Obamney is doing what he’s told by the GOP establishment. Don’t make any sudden emotional declarations….he looked like a GOP stooge today.

  • Ron Polland

    How about “Help us defeat OBAMA?”

      Yeah and how soon you think that will get taken down?? Who saw this coming the Arizona debacle?? I predicted this after roberts and kennedy screwed us all over Arizona….

      In fairness Roberts was thought of as a conservative before this….

      Stop trying to unfairly bash ROmney on anything and everything!

      • PVG

        I agree! Stop trashing Romney!
        This is not a perfect world, as we have just witnessed. It’s not even fair, let alone perfect. We have a choice it’s Romney or Barry the Barbarian. PERIOD! Sarah Palin and everyone else is not in the equation. Live with it. You can be part of the solution and get rid of this tyrannical, inept, marxist ideologue, or continue to tear down the only hope we have at saving what is left of the Constitution.
        THIS IS REALITY. LET’S ROLL!

  • NHConservative0221

    Props to Hannity for putting Jay Sekulow on the spot just now on the radio.

    Sekulow is friends with Roberts.

    Hannity basically asked him if Roberts just fundamentally transformed America with this decision and stabbed us in the back when we thought he was conservative. Sekulow tried to deflect saying that Roberts was a good lawyer.. blah blah.. Hannity interrupted and said “I didn’t ask you that” and that on the biggest issue in history he sided with the libs.

    For the record I hate Roberts more than Maobama!!

  • drphibes

    I applaud Mitt Romney today. He is unequivocal and clear on this issue.

  • rjcylon

    Don’t know what to make of this. He’s SAYING his first priority is repeal this thing. Conservatives say he’s a RINO and since he started Obamacare, he is not going to repeal it because he agrees with it being law. Which would make his ads, this speech, a flat-out lie.

    If he’s running to be a Republican president on this, and wins in a (likely) landslide, then says “you know what on second thought, I really love Obamacare” then… I don’t know. I can’t believe he would just lie but there it is.
