Krauthammer says it’s a mistake for Romney to try and square a circle that even Chief Justice Roberts couldn’t square and to just call it a tax, or whatever argument he needs at the time:

I think this attempt…to be consistent and logical on the issue is a mistake. Even Chief Justice Roberts in his opinion is totally twisted in trying to decide if it’s a tax or a penalty. … Don’t worry about getting into a twist over this and forget about consistency. Use whatever end of the argument you need at the time. It’s exactly what Democrats are doing.

This is a classic case where consistency and intellectually honesty is a mistake. Simply accept what the Supreme Court has said – it’s a tax. And forget about the attack on Massachusetts. People are going to decide on Obamacare and not on what happened in Massachusetts.
